Environmental, Social and Governance

Our environment

Wherever we operate around the world, our employees are committed to doing the right thing. We recognize that as a global company, we have an obligation to act sustainably, with transparency, and to do business in a responsible way.

To that end, Materion colleagues from all over the globe have raised their hands in unity and dedication to serve as Global Green Ambassadors, spreading the word and spearheading positive environmental change in the communities in which we work and play.

The good that is happening in each location and the future initiatives we will be working to implement to encourage a culture of “think green, act green”, makes a difference. And our goal remains the same – to gift a beautiful, healthy world to our future generations.
