The 2023 ESG Report

In 2023, we continued our journey towards Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) goals, and we are thrilled to announce the publication of our 2023 ESG Report called “Today. Tomorrow. Together.” We have made significant progress in tracking our energy usage and emissions data. Our manufacturing processes now use a lower percentage of virgin plastics, thanks to our successful efforts in increasing the percentage of recycled content used to make our products. We remain committed to prioritizing safety. We have implemented multiple measures to attain this goal, such as conducting extensive training programs, introducing safety enhancements, and augmenting the number of Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) personnel. This report is prepared with reference to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards and relied on the results of our 2021 materiality assessment.

Our Approach to ESG

We continue to advance on our ESG journey and embed our commitment throughout the Company, together, as One Myers. We pursue continuous improvement as we serve our customers, invest in and protect our employees, and advance the well-being of the communities where we operate.

We set the direction for our ESG strategy, reporting and implementation efforts with input from our materiality assessment, conducted in 2021. We leveraged internationally recognized ESG frameworks including the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to identify material topics most pertinent to our Company and stakeholders. Through engagement with internal and external stakeholders, the assessment helped us establish our top material areas.

Our three ESG pillars – Products, Planet and People – encompass the areas of focus most important to Myers. The pillars are supported by a strong foundation of Governance, Ethics and Integrity.
