Consistent with these core values, we are committed to effective environmental, social and governance (ESG) management for the long-term benefit of our shareholders, employees and communities.
As part of this commitment to ESG management, we aim to minimize our environmental impact in the communities in which we work and live, while providing services for our customers in a safe and responsible manner. We invest extensively in the safety, health and well-being of our people, who are our most important asset and our greatest strength. Workplace diversity is important to us, and we value a respectful and supportive culture for our employees. We maintain a rigorous focus on ethics and integrity at every level of our operations, a practice on which all of our success depends.
Our employees and our company have taken significant steps to positively impact ESG matters, while delivering value to our customers. I am proud of the initiatives we have pursued, and I hope that this year’s sustainability report helps to highlight some of these efforts.
We welcome your feedback.
