We progressed our sustainability efforts from policy to action in 2021.
Building on a strong foundation, we took important steps during the year to advance our sustainability strategy and programs, engage employees, and make significant progress on our most important priorities. Some of the highlights you will see in this report include:
2021 was a year of accelerating our net-zero commitment and sustainability to take energy forward.

Despite these challenges, we have continued to take energy forward and make great progress on our sustainability goals.
