Gates recently published its 2021 corporate sustainability report highlighting progress toward goals, transparency and Eco-Innovation.
The 2021 report details their continued significant commitment and progress toward goals established through the company’s sustainability framework. Encompassing four key pillars – Governance, Technology, the Environment, and Stewardship (GTES) – the framework was developed to codify the company’s focus on sustainability.
Already aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and grounded in the company’s core values, Gates’ sustainability efforts advanced during 2021, making significant progress against metrics in all four areas of the GTES framework focus. Gates now also reports in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, the world’s most widely used standards for sustainability reporting, creating even more transparency into the progress the company is making.
