In 2021, we celebrated Fortune Brands’ 10-year anniversary as a public company. While we have experienced impressive growth over the last decade, one thing has remained consistent — our commitment to doing the right thing for our people, our consumers, our partners and our communities. This commitment is deeply rooted in our culture and is reflected in our leading-edge products.
Our purpose extends to the way we conduct our work, making sure we take care of our teams, protect our environment and support our communities, all of which are part of our larger, collective home. Whether it’s our commitment to maintain our best-in-class safety records, operate efficient manufacturing processes, develop products with sustainability in mind or setting high supply chain standards, we are looking beyond the house. It’s simply the right thing to do, and all our stakeholders benefit.
In addition to delivering outstanding financial performance in 2021, we took actions to position the Company for the future, including making progress on key Environmental, Social and Governance focus areas.
