Committed to Discipline
We pride ourselves on our commitment to strong corporate governance, which we believe is foundational to delivering the excellence that our stakeholders expect. Our governance has earned us the highest possible Governance QualityScore from ISS – a widely-recognized investor ratings agency – for the past four years. The score is based on an evaluation of our board structure, compensation practices, shareholder rights, and audit and risk oversight.
