110+ years of making science work for people

We recognize the importance of harmony between stakeholders and our business operations. It is important for us to work and deliver on the similar priorities that are relevant to our stakeholders. We used survey method to identify the material topics by assessing significant impact of our operations on economy, environment, and people, including impacts on human rights. Our identified material topics prominently affect us and our stakeholders as well. We understand significance of positive impacts created by us when we align our activities and business relationships accordingly.
