Sustainability: Governance Overview

Empowering a sustainable, connected, and safer world.

Governance Structure

The Nominating and Governance Committee of our Board of Directors provides oversight of our Sustainability Program and reviews and approves our annual Sustainability Report. Our strong governance policies and practices form the foundation for our operational and commercial excellence that is supported by a talented, experienced, and diverse Board of Directors who oversee our company’s strategic direction. A key element of our governance foundation is the commitment to managing risk appropriately through an integrated approach starting with our Board of Directors’ oversight, identification, and management by our leadership team, as well as management processes and detailed operations focus. This includes a cross-functional Climate Risk and Opportunities Committee formed to broaden our process to identify both physical and transitional climate-related risks and opportunities .

Ethics & Compliance Program

In our current business environment where ethical dilemmas are increasingly complicated, our Ethics & Compliance program supports our employees with clear policies and procedures that establish our expectations for ethical behavior.
