United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Our approach to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) focuses on seven SDGs on which we have a direct impact or influence and which we have found to be highly material to our business.

For an additional five SDGs, we have determined that we have direct or indirect influence but they are not ranked as highly on our materiality matrix.

And, finally, for the five remaining goals, we have no notable influence or impact and they do not rank high on our materiality matrix, although we do still measure and report on some of the indicators.

The seven SDGs for which we believe we have the most direct impact or influence through our core business competencies and which are also material to our business include:

In addition, there are five additional SDGs for which we believe we have a lesser, or less direct, impact, but which nonetheless reflect our values, policies, and outreach work:

We believe we have little notable influence or impact on the five remaining SDGs, and they do not rank high on our materiality matrix, although we do still measure and report on some of the indicators. Where appropriate, they are called out in the index of this report, and some indicators are measured in the normal course of our business activities. There SDGs are as follows:
