Corporate Responsibility

Our approach to corporate responsibility is grounded in our commitment to the environment, to protecting our employees and the communities where we operate and to good corporate governance practices which directly impact our performance and value.  With this in mind, we are proud to share our inaugural Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) Report.

In 2019, Myers instituted a Sustainability Committee to develop and oversee our long-term sustainable business practices. The team is responsible for establishing key metrics, goals and reporting standards across the Company. In 2021, Myers worked diligently to complete a thorough materiality assessment to develop goals that align both with globally recognized reporting frameworks and our One Myers culture. In preparing this report, the Company used ESG frameworks such as the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), to identify material topics most pertinent to the Company and its stakeholders. Myers is committed to continuous improvement in its efforts to define and measure progress against its long term ESG goals.

Our goal in 2022 is to share our report, and apply tools for consistent implementation, measurement, and benchmarking of our environmental and social policies, programs, and disclosures. We believe this will enable us to better demonstrate and communicate our commitment to continuous improvement in these areas.

Myers’ ESG Pillars

Based on the outcomes of our materiality assessment, we established the three ESG pillars of Products, Planet and People and identified material topics under each pillar, which are all supported by a strong foundation of Governance, Ethics and Integrity. The pillars and topics provide the framework to focus our efforts on key areas for continuous improvement that will drive long-term sustainable growth and value for all stakeholders.

  • Product Innovation and Quality
  • Customer Focus and Satisfaction
  • Supply Chain Management

Planet

  • Climate Resilience and Action
  • Clean Air
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Supply Chain Management

Corporate Governance

We believe good corporate governance is at the heart of running a successful organization. It improves performance and promotes trust with our key stakeholders.  Our Product, Planet and People pillars all rest upon the Myers’ foundation of Governance, Ethics and Integrity.

We readily engage with stakeholders to maintain and foster long-term relationships. By interacting with our various stakeholder groups, we better understand and manage their needs and interests.
