OUR ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY
We believe that to be good, you must do good. Since 1931, we have been delivering innovative, state-of-the art technological solutions to our customers to help make the world a better place to live, work and play. By doing business with integrity, doing what is right by the people that we serve and looking out for the best interests of all of our stakeholders, we have created a culture that enables Materion to thrive and grow.
Our 3,000 global employees strive to be true stewards of the environment, with an enduring sense of urgency to take care of the first home all of us were given – our planet. That longstanding commitment to environmental preservation is the very embodiment of a philosophy that shapes every decision that impacts our customers, communities, employees and shareholders.
Our EcoMatters Sustainability Program consists of four main pillars:
We strive to maintain a diverse and inclusive employee workforce with a daily mission to always try and be better than yesterday. Our business succeeds when our employees thrive. Employees with diverse backgrounds and perspectives contribute to our high-performance environment and enhance our competitiveness as an employer of choice. We prioritize talent recruitment, talent development, workforce safety and diversity and inclusion to meet customer needs and innovate for the future.
As a global technology solutions leader, Materion engineers the advanced materials that support some of the world’s most advanced industries. As a responsible global citizen, we develop our products and services in ways that protect the environment, strengthen communities and propel responsible growth. Sustainability illustrates how we pursue innovation with purpose. It makes good business sense by reducing risks and cultivating responsible growth.
Innovation is at the heart of everything we do - always looking ahead to “what’s next.” We continually explore new ways of thinking and transformational opportunities to help enhance the satisfaction and well-being of our customers, employees, and the communities in which we live and work.
We strive to create products and services that are not only the best in the world but also the best for the world. This is part of our focused commitment to act as a responsible employer, business partner, and neighbor. Activating sustainability means we follow a holistic approach across our global products, processes, and people.
