Being not only aware of our social responsibilities towards the community and our employees, but also acting responsibly is part of our common goal. I am extremely proud of all of our local achievements in relation to sustainability and corporate responsibility. We have made considerable progress in broadening representation and diversity, but at the heart of our ambition is the creation of an environment where all voices are heard and new ideas quickly make themselves felt. It is important to keep our focus on enabling all our employees while also contributing to a better world by supporting the communities in which we operate.
