The keystones to SHI's business philosophy

Get in touch

SHI’s commitment to equitable, inclusive, and sustainable operations is backed by our continued dedication to transparency.

At SHI, we are dedicated to environmental sustainability, and we have set ambitious goals to reduce our carbon footprint. Our primary objective is to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. To make significant progress towards this goal and particularly targeting scope 2 emissions, we are focusing on increasing our onsite solar energy generation by 33% before 2025, building upon a baseline year of 2022. Furthermore, we are committed to transitioning to 100% renewable energy across all our locations by 2030.

These initiatives underscore our firm belief in the importance of environmental stewardship and our commitment to creating a more sustainable future for generations to come.

We’ve established a dedicated stakeholder group and ESG Project Management Office to set our guiding principles and support our goals. These teams influence our strategy and actions with full oversight from our Audit Committee.

Our ESG Platform enables seamless data collection from internal and external sources, providing governance and rigor to our review process while ensuring the integrity of our reporting.

"SHI is committed to operating in an equitable, inclusive, and sustainable manner, and we are excited to provide greater transparency into our key efforts and initiatives in this area."

SHI understands we’re responsible for our environmental impact and are committed to long-term sustainability.

Preserving the environment and fostering a sustainable future are crucial principles of our overall business strategy.

Setting and implementing global environmental policies, management systems, and key performance metrics enables us to continually drive environmental stewardship, assuring consistency and innovative environmental thinking.

We routinely assess how we can reduce our own carbon footprint. Incorporating green initiatives into our business strategy minimizes annual technology waste and maximizes our impact toward a greener planet.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) make SHI better, smarter, and more collaborative.

DEI initiatives impact everything we do. Internally, SHI considers diversity among multiple facets in employment recruitment. We work to provide equity in compensation and benefits and provide opportunities for professional development and trainings for all groups of employees.

This ensures our work environment fosters respectful communication and cooperation between all employees and promotes high levels of employee participation.

SHI’s key diversity initiatives include:

  • Amplifying diverse voices.
  • Community outreach.
  • Corporate social responsibility (CSR).
  • DEI training.
  • Employee investment.
  • Executive support.
  • Inclusive communication.
  • Supplier diversity.
"SHI builds a strong, unified community by sharing and celebrating all our unique experiences. When we all listen, share, educate, and empower, we ensure all voices are heard around our table, recognizing first and foremost what we have in common to allow us to achieve success."

- Ellen Mass, Vice President of Human Resources
