Corporate social responsibility—the voluntary commitment of a business that includes triple bottom line actions in its corporate processes—is based on the principle that corporate success and social well-being are interdependent and that the long-term interests of an organization are best served by improving its economic, sociocultural, and environmental/energy practices, also known as the three pillars of sustainability. As a responsible corporation, we respect the interests of our stakeholders—our shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, and the wider community—and we actively seek out opportunities to improve the environment and to contribute to the well-being of the communities in which we do business. We fulfill our corporate citizenship by applying our six core values of safety, quality, integrity, diversity, innovation, and sustainability.
