Our Executive Leadership Team (ELT) meets every six weeks. Rick Westerman, Senior Vice President, Investor Relations & Corporate Responsibility, reports to the ELT on corporate responsibility topics.

A dedicated team based in our offices in Amsterdam leads the execution of our CR strategy, supported by a network of managers and employees with shared responsibility for CR delivery throughout our companies.
Ultimately, delivery of our CR strategy resides with all of our employees – individually and collectively. We believe that it is important to help all our employees act in a responsible way. We therefore involve employees through a range of mechanisms, as part of our stakeholder engagement process.
