Global Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth

SDG icons - decent work and economic growth

We promote economic development in the local communities where we operate through the payment of fair salaries, taxes, pension and social security contributions. We have high standards for human rights and labor rights, both internally and in our value chain. We measure success against the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit; we must succeed in all three areas in order to secure our long-term success.  We hold our business partners to the same high standards.

Global Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

SDG icons - industry, innovation and infrastructure

Our financial success enables us to continuously invest in research and development, leading to innovations that in turn help our customers to deliver the products and infrastructure we all depend on in our daily lives.
