Furthering Our Commitment to GRI Reporting
This year’s Trinseo Sustainability Report was once again prepared in accordance with the core option of the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards and reflects our increasing focus on sustainability and transparency with the adoption of the GRI Standards for sustainability reporting. Using GRI Standards has helped Trinseo to take a deeper and more holistic look at our material topics and related impacts, based on the priorities of our stakeholders. Through that analysis, we are setting a foundation to drive meaningful change across all areas of our business.
Recognizing the value of collaboration and input from audiences who can help enhance our sustainability efforts, Trinseo engages with a variety of stakeholder groups throughout the year. When Trinseo adopted the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards, Trinseo’s Sustainability Council identified the following list of stakeholder groups as priorities in its consistent and collaborative efforts toward a more sustainable future: Customers Communities Government/Regulatory Bodies Industry & Trade Associations Shareholders & the Investment Community Suppliers The methods by which we engage with each group vary according to their needs and proximity, but Trinseo prioritizes transparency, accuracy, and purpose in its interactions with our key stakeholders.
Using key insights from stakeholder engagement, our materiality assessment, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and peer company sample goals by topic area, our Sustainability Council developed strategic, ambitious, and achievable goals for a more sustainable and responsible business. Fifteen goals were identified within five categories:
