A Sustainable Strategy

In 2021, PLZ formed its first dedicated and highly cross-functional ESG Steering Committee to provide overarching ESG Governance and help develop our corporate ESG strategy.

These goals, associated action plans, and progress are reported to the Board of Directors at regular intervals. We always welcome input from all voices in our organization and as such, all employees are encouraged to bring ideas for improving our ESG initiatives to the Committee.
