Stakeholders expect us to clearly communicate where we’re focused and how we're doing. Our new responsibility focus areas present the opportunity to inspect the metrics we've tracked in the past and expand our disclosure to align with evolving expectations. We are also modernizing our reporting approach, to better meet the unique information needs of various stakeholders and allow for more continuous dialogue.
In 2021, we shifted to a new reporting cycle, disclosing progress and key metrics for each of our responsibility focus areas in stand-alone reports. We will publish these reports throughout the year and commit to updating our progress "off cycle" as necessary. As we’ve done in the past, each of these focus area reports will share our approach and progress toward our goals, including relevant targets and metrics.
