About This Report
This report reflects the company’s environmental activities and progress to our targets over the past year.
We highlight our objectives, results, accomplishments and business relevancy in the following four areas: Design the Future, Innovate to Zero, Inspire Global Collaboration and Performance. Whenever possible, we provide relevant environmental information for the corresponding time period for our operations.
We have expanded the scope and depth of the information reported in the Performance section, as our environmental programs have matured and expanded, and to reflect valuable stakeholder feedback. The data presented in our Performance section undergo an internal audit review to verify data collection and authentication processes. Additionally, the data representing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is verified by DNV Certification Inc. with limited assurance. More information about each data set is available in the corresponding footnotes located within the Performance section.
This report contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “may,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “projects,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” “targets,” “anticipates” and similar expressions are used to identify these forward-looking statements. Examples of forward-looking statements include statements relating to our future financial condition and operating results, as well as any other statement that does not directly relate to any historical or current fact. Forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and assumptions, which may not prove to be accurate. These statements are not guarantees and are subject to risks, uncertainties and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Many factors could cause actual results to differ materially and adversely from these forward-looking statements.
