At Clorox, our financial performance and our ongoing commitment to corporate responsibility (CR) go hand in hand. That's why we have taken the important step to integrate our financial, environmental, social and governance performance in one report. Our success in each of these areas matters to our stockholders and a range of other stakeholders, including employees, consumers, customers, government and nongovernment organizations, business partners and our communities.
We've organized this year's report according to our strategic focus on five key pillars: Performance, Products, People, Planet and Purpose. You will learn more about these pillars throughout the report.

Unless otherwise noted, the data in this report covers our wholly- and majority-owned operations during fiscal year 2011 (July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011), with the exception of our environmental sustainability data, which is tracked on a calendar-year basis. In some instances, we have included data from prior years to show year-over-year comparisons. We plan to issue an integrated report annually.
We developed our CR and sustainability content according to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3.1 Guidelines, which provide a recommended framework and indicators for reporting. We also sought third-party verification of our greenhouse gas emissions. Based on the number of GRI disclosures we include, our report met a GRI-checked application of "B+". Our GRI Content Index, which details the location of our GRI standard disclosures in this report and on our corporate website, can be found under the GRI Index section of this report. Information on the G3.1 Guidelines and application levels is available at www.globalreporting.org.
