SASB Reference Table

This marks the first time we're providing disclosures of our environmental, social and governance performance in reference to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board’s Household and Personal Products standard, as defined by SASB’s Sustainable Industry Classification System. In the table below, we identify our initial disclosures or location where a qualitative discussion can be found for each priority topic. For our new strategy, we'll work toward greater alignment of key metrics with SASB’s standards as we continue to support the spirit of SASB’s mission and strive toward greater transparency of relevant nonfinancial data that helps investors make informed decisions, drives improved sustainability outcomes for our company and leads to improved long-term value creation.
