At Corning, we take a long-term approach to sustainability, as we address key challenges of the moment and evolve to meet the needs of the future.
We think about our contributions in two categories. One is our footprint — how our actions directly affect others in areas such as gender pay equity and carbon emissions from our operations. The other is our handprint — what we enable others to do through our products and services, such as helping to deliver over 8 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses to date through our glass vials and tubing.
At Corning, encompassed in our definition of sustainability is the idea that we serve the future as well as the present. We’re working to ensure that all our stakeholders – both today and tomorrow – receive the benefits of another 170 years of invention and innovation. To do this on an ongoing basis, we must constantly evolve and improve.
