US-based company, SWM International, has released its 2021 Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) report as part of its ongoing efforts to increase transparency around its ESG strategy and initiatives. The sustainability report highlights its commitment to sustainable business practices and how it is addressing key ESG areas of focus.

The 2021 ESG report shares stories of how SWM is working toward more sustainable solutions, including those that impact the environments where the company operates, where its products are used, and the planet in general, the company said in a media statement.

Among the highlights in the report are areas important to the company’s strategy:

  • SWM employees and their health, safety, and development
  • SWM’s culture that allows for honest conversations, diversity of thought, teamwork, creativity, and innovation
  • Customer relationships and SWM products
  • Governance oversight and policies to support integrity and ethical behavior throughout the four continents where SWM operates
  • Commitment to excellence in everything, including supporting local communities
  • SWM’s responsibility to further integrating environmental practices into its strategies

“We are proud of the contributions our materials make to improving everyday life, but this is only part of the SWM story. While we remain firmly focused on performing for our investors and our customers, we are just as focused on performing for our employees, and the global community. This report is just one example of that focus, documenting SWM’s ESG journey and how our strategy aligns with long-term value creation for all of our stakeholders,” SWM CEO Jeffrey Kramer said in a statement.

“Our ESG report provides insight into how we pursue our mission of finding ways to improve everyday life, and doing so responsibly. While there is certainly more to do, the global SWM community is proud of our progress on this important journey, and I look forward to continuing to share our accomplishments in the future,” Kramer added.
