Gates recently published its annual Sustainability Report for 2022. The report highlights Gates progress on the four pillars of the company's sustainability strategy: Governance, Technology, Environment, and Stewardship.
“I’m proud of the ongoing commitment from our global teams to continue to advance our sustainability efforts company-wide, as captured in our latest Sustainability Report,” said Ivo Jurek, chief executive officer of Gates. “We have further invested in our ESG organization, established additional governance processes, enhanced our reporting to align with global standards, and continued to leverage our Eco-Innovation process to develop and manufacture products with a reduced environmental footprint while also supporting our customers on their sustainability journeys.”
Gates’ reporting process applies the standards and guidelines expressed by the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Foundation and its Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). Reporting is also informed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
