This publication discloses its most up-to-date environmental, social, and governance (EGS) information, including a GRI content index and ESG performance data table. Management and performance highlights from the report include reducing Charles River Labs’ environmental footprint, commitment to employee safety, diversifying its board of directors, signing onto the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion, and donating more than $2 million to 300 local community organizations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

CITGO Petroleum Corporation released its first-ever report detailing the company's environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives. The new report, entitled A Clear Direction Forward, represents a significant shift in the company's prior approach to corporate responsibility reporting, with an increased emphasis on ethics and governance accountability. "CITGO has never been more dedicated to our core values of environmental stewardship, integrity, respect, fairness, social responsibility, operational availability, and competitiveness," said CITGO President and CEO Carlos Jordá. "This report shows those CITGO core values at work."
