SUSTAINABILITY AT APOGEE
At Apogee, sustainability means creating a company that is built to achieve long-term profitable growth, while carefully stewarding the resources entrusted to us. Sustainability is not something new for Apogee. Rather, it is woven throughout our Core Values, the principles that reflect who we are as an organization. With a proud 70-year history, the team at Apogee understands what it takes to build an enduring business.
Our commitment to sustainability begins with our people. We aim to train, develop and retain the best possible talent, to ensure that we have the capabilities in place to consistently deliver for our customers. A key part of taking care of our people is our commitment to safety. We have made workplace safety a top priority across the company; raising awareness, improving training and making smart investments to improve safety in our facilities.
Apogee's architectural products and services are key enablers to green building and sustainable design. We've long been at the forefront of developing innovative products and services that help architects and building owners achieve their sustainability goals. Our high-performance thermal framing systems, custom architectural glass coatings, and other products help improve building energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and increase comfort for building occupants.
Operations & Environment
Our commitment to sustainability extends to our own operations as well. Through the Apogee Management System we are continually focused on eliminating waste and minimizing resource consumption. We also have policies in place to ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations. Conserving resources and protecting the environment not only make good business sense; we believe it's the right thing to do.
We strive to make a difference in the communities where we operate. Apogee has a long legacy of giving back to the communities where we do business through volunteerism, donations and financial support. We also work to strengthen the communities where we operate by investing in our business and creating good jobs.
Effective corporate governance is a key part of our overall approach to sustainability. We are committed to high standards of corporate governance and ethical business conduct. Our Board, together and through its committees, has overall responsibility for Apogee’s risk oversight, including environmental, social, and governance matters.
