Setting ambitions and targets

Progress requires clearly articulated targets and accountability for meeting them. Measuring and reporting on progress is a backward-looking exercise. To evaluate the effectiveness of our approach to sustainability and give clarity to both internal and external stakeholders, setting clear targets is paramount. It allows us to define our direction, align on definitions and measurements of success, and hold ourselves accountable for progress. 

Our 2025 Roadmap

Our Roadmap outlines our key goals and informs the route of our company’s long-term plan. Running to the end of 2025, it comprises 11 headline goals, each connected to our eight strategies, which aim to address our priority ESG topics identified by our sustainability materiality assessment. 

Our Roadmap offers straightforward direction to our stakeholders by clearly outlining the social and environmental impacts we aim to achieve with these strategies, in relation to both our products and our business operations.

We believe business can and must help to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations’ member states in 2015. 

Accordingly, we explicitly link each of our eight priority areas of action to the SDG(s) to which they align. We identified the SDGs on which we believe we can have a real and lasting impact (read more about our SDG mapping in our 2021 Sustainability Materiality Report. Our SDG Index maps the actions and ambitions described throughout this report with the relevant SDGs and their respective targets.

While most goals are not new, they are formulated more clearly. This revamped guide offers straightforward direction to our stakeholders by clearly outlining the social and environmental impacts we aim to achieve with both our products and our business operations.

PMI's Sustainability Index directly connects the 2025 Roadmap to specific KPIs and aspirations, allowing us to link sustainability performance to long-term executive compensation (read more here).
