Our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategy is critical to our success as a company. We are working to foster a better world for our employees, audiences, partners, and communities. It is our responsibility to measure and manage the ESG impacts we have as a global content powerhouse.
The media and entertainment industry is one of the most powerful forces influencing and reflecting culture, social views, and societal outcomes. We are early in our journey of telling our ESG story, and started by publishing our first company-wide materiality assessment -- a comprehensive analysis of the topic areas that are most relevant to ViacomCBS, according to key internal and external stakeholders – and our first ESG report in 2019-2020.
In our second annual ESG report, we have expanded upon our initial reporting and commitments, including the publishing of our in-development companywide ESG goals across our three ESG priority areas: On-Screen Content and Social Impact, Workforce and Culture, and Sustainable Production and Operations. We will publish this report in 2021.
We take seriously the views of all our stakeholders and actively seek their input. For any feedback or questions, please contact Jessica Thurston, Senior Director, ESG Strategy, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
