Environmental, Social & Governance Excellence

Living Our Purpose

We help our customers achieve their ESG goals by enhancing workplace safety and we embed this same commitment into our own business. Excellence in ESG performance fosters greater resiliency and adaptability, safeguards the value we’ve created, and builds a better business model—and a better world.

ESG Report

Through our annual ESG Report, we benchmark our performance against key metrics, creating goals and charting a path to set ourselves, our environment, people, communities, investors, customers and partners up for a sustainable future. Developed using globally recognized reporting standards, the report discloses our progress and challenges — fully and transparently — at a time when ESG expectations continue to rise.

Modern Slavery Act Report

Forced labour and child labour are contrary to our corporate purpose, vision, and values. We are committed to helping prevent forced labour and child labour and human trafficking in all its forms and to act with integrity in all our business dealings. We recognize the importance of ethical and responsible business practices.

Our Values Drive Us Forward

The growth we have experienced and our expansion as a company has been guided by our commitment to our values. While our values are not new, in 2020, we took the time to formalize and share them. We embody them daily, preparing us all for even faster growth.

By living our values, we enhance the safety and success of our customers and their employees while driving our own organization’s culture forward.

Drive innovation
Tirelessly pursuing new and renewed products, processes and ideas, understanding that continuous improvement can be disruptive.
Be resilient
Facing the challenges before us, being curious about our potential, and starting from scratch when necessary.
Demonstrate leadership
Knowing that leadership is a behavior and not a position, and actively participating in our successes.
Go the extra mile
Channeling an entrepreneurial spirit and rolling up our sleeves to do the work, whatever the work.
Empowering people
Powering people and their potential is at the heart of our business — both in our mission to protect and save lives and in our day-to-day business operations.
