RPM International Inc. recently announced that it has released its first “Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report” highlighting the company’s safe, ethical, and sustainable business practices. The report discusses RPM’s approach to addressing a broad range of ESG matters, including its code of conduct, governance practices, talent development and associate benefits, commitment to diversity and inclusion, health and safety culture, philanthropic and community involvement, and sustainable products and processes.
“Our inaugural ESG Report provides concrete examples and data-driven metrics that demonstrate our track record of taking care of our associates, customers and communities, which is how we create stockholder value and leave a legacy we can all celebrate,” said Frank C. Sullivan, chairman and CEO.
In developing the document, RPM reports that it conducted a robust materiality assessment, informed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards and other common sustainability frameworks. The company identified material topics by considering the significance of the organization’s economic, environmental, and social impacts, as well as its substantive influence on the assessments and decisions of stakeholders.
