A long-term project and a group project
Sustainability is not a project that we plan to wrap up by the end of the fiscal year. We see it as a continual work in progress and a way of doing business. At OGC, we regularly review what we’re doing and how we do it, and figure out where we can improve. We openly track our social and environmental performance in our Annual Sustainability Report.
