Every year we voluntarily disclose our performance to socially responsible investment reporting programs. Recognition and feedback from these programs helps us identify best practices, areas where we’re doing well and where we can improve our disclosures.

These programs also provide a means by which we engage with investors to better identify emerging material topics that we need to be transparent about and include in our corporate responsibility report and other disclosures.

In 2016, we received the following external recognition:
