Shareholder Outreach and our Corporate Governance Cycle
Effective corporate governance includes regular, constructive conversations with our shareholders on topics including operating performance, corporate governance, and environmental and societal issues. Shareholders provide valuable insights into emerging issues and feedback on our efforts. Our Independent Chairman of the Board frequently participates in shareholder meetings, and shareholder feedback is provided to relevant committees and the full Board. We actively engage
with our shareholders as part of our annual corporate governance cycle described below.
