“As we near the one-year anniversary of the announcement of our ESG goals, we are proud to have aligned with organizations such as the RBA and others as we work collectively with businesses around the world to make an impact for safe, fair, and equitable working conditions and responsible environmental stewardship,” said Leah Tate, Senior Vice President Human Resources. “While we are early in our ESG journey, we know that joining forces with others will provide us with a powerful platform to learn from fellow leaders and be part of a mission that we feel so strongly about.”
