Environmental, Social and Governance

Materion’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives have been integral to our company culture and operations since its founding in 1931.

Our ESG approach is structured around focus areas considered to be material to our business. Clear dialogue with stakeholders is important to building strong relationships, understanding external dynamics, earning and maintaining trust, enhancing business performance and evolving our ESG approach.

We regularly engage with a broad range of stakeholders including clients, shareholders, investors, analysts, governments, regulators, suppliers and the broader community. Driven by strong risk management, we work to continually improve performance across our focus areas to create sustainable value over the long-term.

Our Commitment - From our leadership team to the Board of Directors, strong governance, ethical operations and upholding compliance standards are vital to our organization's continued advancement.

Our People – Materion’s diverse employee base, who embody our culture, is the driving force behind our success. Making sure they have a safe work environment and the proper training ensures everyone can go home safely each day.

Our Operations – We conduct our business activities in accordance with the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact and fully support these values. We also expect our business partners and suppliers to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with principles expressed in this Policy.

We are pleased to share this journey as we continuously improve and strive for excellence in all facets of our organization. To learn more about Materion’s ESG initiatives, we encourage you to visit our Environmental, Social and Governance page and Global Reporting Initiative and SASB Indexes.
