The association’s previously held maxim that a corporation’s foremost existence was to serve shareholders was scrapped in an effort to put a greater focus on improving society.

The new purpose emphasizes investment in employees and communities, where the commitment to support workers, respect communities and implement sustainable practices is what generates long-term value.
