We recognize that this unique leadership position comes with tremendous responsibility to our employees, customers and society.

Here are just a few highlights of our recent progress: > Reduced our Scope 1 and 2 emissions and increased our use of renewable electricity, remaining on track to achieve our 2030 goals. > Quantified our full Scope 3 emissions inventory for our 2019 baseline and reported our carbon impact and risks in-line with the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). > Advanced our 3x30 and SuCCESS2030 goals, including accelerating sustainable innovation, improving the longevity of our products, and enabling our suppliers to better meet our ESG expectations. > Strengthened our Culture of Inclusion by providing comprehensive diversity training to all senior leaders and a majority of employees worldwide and increased the representation of women and underrepresented minorities in our company—though we know we have to do much more to reach our targets. > Conducted our first human rights salience assessment, which builds on our Human Rights Statement of Principles . We will report on our progress toward these topics in future years. > Completed an equity audit of our community involvement and investments, and committed to put equity at the center of all future community engagements.
