Corporate Sustainability

Responsibly fulfilling our commitments.

We care about our team members, the communities in which we operate, and environmental stewardship. Our leadership team is guided by an experienced, diverse and independent Board of Directors whose expertise amplifies our vision and character to continually raise our standards and do more.

Social

Diversity & Inclusion

A commitment to diversity, inclusion, and respect.

We create, nurture, and sustain an inclusive and diverse environment that attracts and retains the highest caliber employees, leveraging their skills and expertise to serve our customers. We are dedicated to attracting and developing individuals of all backgrounds, and making CSWI a place where everyone can contribute and grow. We believe that diversity not only inspires our internal team, but also drives customer engagement and service.

Our core value of Respect requires that we treat each and every person with dignity, because we believe in the intrinsic value of each individual. This means that we should operate in an environment where everyone has an equal opportunity in all hiring, promotion, and compensation matters. In addition, we believe that embracing diversity will make CSWI a stronger and more successful business because we can benefit from varying opinions, perspectives, and life experiences. Managers and leaders are expected to reinforce our values through their actions, thereby serving as role models in creating a work environment that is welcoming and safe while providing an equal opportunity for all to succeed as a member of our team. All of these objectives are reflected in our Code of Conduct

A focus on safety: Within and beyond our walls.

A safe environment is also a critical focus for our Company—safety that extends beyond our walls and to our customers and end users. The standout products and services among our Engineered Building Solutions segment showcase this commitment. Smoke Guard, Balco, and Greco help contractors and commercial builders meet safety and code compliance for both new construction and renovation, including fire and smoke protection and railings.

Board Independence and Leadership

Our Board of Directors has a responsibility to oversee the Company’s leadership in the competent and ethical operation of the Company and to ensure that our shareholders’ best interests are being served. We believe that a governance structure characterized by an engaged, qualified, and independent Board, operating within a well-defined leadership structure, best promotes the Board’s efforts to meet their responsibilities.

Our Corporate Governance Guidelines require that a majority of our Board members be independent under Nasdaq rules and applicable law, and only those Board members who have no material relationship with the Company are deemed independent. Further, our independent Board members operate under the leadership of a Lead Independent Director, who has well-defined responsibilities that support and facilitate the Board’s oversight obligations.

Ethics

Ethics first, always.

At CSWI, maintaining ethical standards is job one. Our Code of Conduct helps team members assess the right answer to ethical questions that may arise. In addition to receiving digital and printed copies of the Code of Conduct, every CSWI team member must conduct a 90-minute digital training session on an annual basis. We also highly encourage team members to report any violation of law, Code of Conduct, or Company policy.

Team members have multiple ways to report concerns or incidents, including to consult with their supervisors or Human Resources representatives.

The CSWI Ethics Hotline is also available globally, 24 hours a day, year-round, and it can be accessed via a website or toll-free telephone number.

At CSWI, we are focused on responsible operations intended to keep our team members safe, minimize our impact to the environment and our communities, and use a forward-looking approach to making our product lines increasingly renewable and eco-friendly. We are working to monitor energy and water usage, as well as waste generation, with the goal of increasing our efficiency and reducing our environmental footprint.
