19 OUR COMMITMENT TO SOCIAL IMPACT & SUSTAINABILITY OUR COMMITMENT TO THE UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a voluntary framework of 17 global goals and targets meant to accelerate advancement toward a more sustainable world. Since they were issued in 2015, they have become a common touchstone for governments, the private sector, and civil society in tracking sustainability progress. WE PRIMARILY FOCUS ON THE FIVE SDGs WHERE WE BELIEVE WE CAN HAVE THE MOST IMPACT TO HELP DELIVER ON THE VISION OF A MORE SUSTAINABLE WORLD: Our consumer engagements include: direct interaction online and in store settings; consumer feedback portals, including Consumer Care; satisfaction surveys; and social media and influencer channels. Consumer interest in social impact and sustainability includes product information; ingredient transparency; sourcing practices; and animal testing. We engage with our investors in a number of ways. We have a comprehensive, strategic investor relations program to help communicate with the investment community about our company’s performance and corporate values, as well as to educate current and prospective investors and the sell-side analyst community about our business strategies and social impact and sustainability commitments and initiatives. In fiscal 2021, we enhanced our investor outreach by expanding dialogue around our progress in social impact and sustainability. We also conduct an annual ESG investor perception study to listen and learn as we continue delivering value to our investors. SDG3.
