In a year of unprecedented macro challenges – from the COVID-19 pandemic to supply constraints – SGH prioritized the health and safety of its employees and the geographies in which it operates. Around the world, SGH employees stepped up to support their communities during the pandemic. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, in the U.S., SGH donated N95 masks, surgical masks and gloves to local hospitals, fire stations and veteran centers. In Brazil, SGH donated 3,000 masks and 262 packages of surgical aprons. In Malaysia, it contributed critical medical equipment, including sanitizers, test kits and personal protective equipment to the intensive care units of local hospitals.

"During these unprecedented times, we remain focused on our commitment to creating a sustainable future and making a difference in the world we all share," said SGH President and CEO Mark Adams. "To continue our progress, we have established goals with regard to climate action, diversity and inclusion, and governance."

The SGH goals in these areas are as follows:
