ST has always been strongly committed to sustainability, and in the early 1990s we were one of the first multinational companies to implement an environmental policy, complete with publicly disclosed targets that went beyond legal requirements. Since then, we have increasingly widened the scope of our commitments.
Today, sustainability is integrated throughout our entire business, allowing us to maximize opportunities in areas such as sustainable technology and innovation, as well as helping us to predict and mitigate risks to our operations and business performance.
Sustainability challenges and opportunities are constantly evolving and it is essential to ensure we remain aligned. In 2017 we performed our third materiality exercise to identify, refine and assess potential environmental, economical and social issues that could affect ST's business and stakeholders.
