ESG/Ethical Impact

Our success is only possible with the hard work of our global team and their commitment to upholding our core values of Safety, Environment, and Quality (“SEQ”). These values focus our attention on a core mission for GrafTech: providing a safe work environment for all employees, environmental stewardship, and delivering superior product quality. As a company, we are committed to unyielding integrity and to ensuring the success of future generations of employees, customers, stockholders, and communities. At GrafTech, ethical conduct is a fundamental principle, synonymous with business success and essential for carrying out all business objectives. Our Code of Conduct and Ethics (the “Code”) serves as the foundation for these values and guides our team in making thoughtful and well-informed decisions. The Code applies to employees, directors, and officers of GrafTech, and the Board reviews the Code annually as part of its regular review of our corporate governance practices. At GrafTech, we understand that graphite electrode manufacturing processes have an impact on the communities in which we operate and their surrounding environment. Simultaneously, we recognize that our operations and the long-term success of our business depends on our ability to reduce our environmental footprint. For these reasons, we have identified energy conservation, increased use of low carbon and renewable energy sources, reduction of greenhouse gas and other air emissions, waste recycling, and water management as key strategies for reducing our environmental impact. At GrafTech, we strive to deliver the highest performing electrodes to our customers. The combination of our highly engineered products and technical services can help our customers increase productivity and reduce costs, while simultaneously supporting both our sustainability goals and those of our clients. The EAF steelmaking method is more environmentally friendly than traditional methods, and as such investing in our products illustrates a commitment to the effort to decarbonize the steel industry. As the market for EAF steel grows, we look to innovate and expand our business, by continuing to deliver the highest performing electrodes manufactured in a responsible and sustainable manner.
