At Aptia, we are working to build a more sustainable future for our employees, clients, communities, and the environment so that we may mitigate potential risks and deliver long-term value for our investors and positive impact for our stakeholders. We are committed to embracing critical and material Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations in our decision-making, operations, and overall business strategy through initiatives we plan to launch in 2023 and develop further over time.
We seek to uphold the highest standards of corporate governance, business integrity, and ethics. We are developing our Code of Conduct to help colleagues, from entry-level to executive positions, act with integrity, transparency, and accountability in all business activities.
We recognise the value of various backgrounds, expertise, and perspectives at all levels of our organisation, including on our Board and leadership teams, to drive better decision-making and governance.
We are working to set up and maintain rigorous data security and compliance programs to help ensure adherence to all applicable laws, regulations, and industry standards. We plan to regularly assess and work to mitigate risks to protect the interests of our stakeholders.
We plan to define action steps to reduce our operational greenhouse gas emissions, which may include adopting energy-efficient practices, transitioning to renewable energy sources, or offsetting our emissions.
We also plan to improve the broader environmental footprint of our business activities according to the GHG Protocol. This may include measurement of scopes 1-3 GHG emissions, energy use, water use, waste, and other environmental KPIs that we plan to define with input from relevant third parties, including our stakeholders.
Finally, we plan to begin efforts to improve and manage our environmental footprint by defining annual targets that we will report to our Board. We will strive to efficiently use natural resources, such as water and energy, and optimise resource consumption in our operations.
We embrace diversity as a strategic asset and commit to fostering an inclusive and equitable workplace where team members feel valued and can participate in creating business success.
We view a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and opinions as vital to our business and driving high performance. We strive to expand our candidate pipelines, integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) best practices into interview processes, and support our colleagues with meaningful learning and development opportunities.
Finally, we strive to prioritise the well-being of our employees by providing an attractive benefits package, promoting work-life balance, and supporting mental health initiatives. We plan to regularly assess and work to enhance employee engagement and well-being via initiatives developed from employee feedback and industry best practices.
Going forward, we plan to establish an ESG action plan and performance indicators to help communicate our goals, progress, and challenges. Through regular review and refinement of our policies, action plan, and targets, we will work thoughtfully and continuously to deliver enduring value and positive impact for years to come.
 GHG Protocol establishes comprehensive global standardised frameworks to measure and manage greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from private and public sector operations, value chains, and mitigation actions.
