    External Recognition

    Sustainability is at the heart of our business and we are delighted to be recognized for this externally

     

    We engage with external bodies who evaluate us on our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance, compared to our peers. These evaluations differ in terms of methodology, coverage, and focus areas. We allocate our efforts to engage with bodies who have robust and transparent methodologies. Thanks to our ambitious sustainability program and performance, we are recognized as a leader in sustainability.

    There is strength in numbers, which is why we work closely with our suppliers, peer groups, industry organizations and academia to create products and systems that make a real difference and to push boundaries and innovate.

    StEP: solving the E-waste Problem
