GRI Index

The Global Reporting Initiative provides a framework disclosing information of particular interest to stakeholders materially affected by a company’s operations. The index below shows where to find such information in this report.
On this page

A materiality analysis was conducted in 2017 to help shape our sustainability strategy by understanding the issues important to our investors, employees, customers and communities. The analysis was conducted using both internal and external interviews. In addition to external interviews, external documents that provided stakeholder perspectives were reviewed. The internal interviews focused on those who directly engage with stakeholders on a regular basis. In addition, a targeted employee survey was used to hear directly from employees on issues important to them. With the help of external sustainability experts, an internal team of stakeholders considered the issues that had been identified, and then selected a list of material issues that were then vetted with internal leaders.
