Our Sustainability at Smiths framework defines our material ESG topics and commitments. It ensures that we focus on, and report against, those areas where we create the most value.
Defining our most important ESG topics tightens the connection with operational execution and helps us report in a transparent way. Click on each topic in the framework to find out more.
A deeper understanding and ability to influence change in our multiple supply chains is becoming increasingly critical as we seek to manage risk and make progress on all aspects of ESG.
