Our goal in 2022 was to continue our ESG journey, and now we are excited to publish Together As One, our 2022 ESG update. Our focus on improving our ESG efforts, especially in the area of our people, has been captured in this updated report. Myers remains committed to living our core values and delivering to our customers, our shareholders and our team while being good stewards in our communities and on our planet. Thank you for reading!
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.
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.
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.
