Our culture is our lifeblood. For more than 65 years as a publicly traded company, The Vulcan Way has been to do the right thing, the right way, at the right time. We have a long history of serving our customers and delivering results to our shareholders while embodying our commitments to people; to the safety and health of our Vulcan family members; to environmental stewardship; and to the communities where we live, work and play. These commitments have always been part of The Vulcan Way. In 2021, we shifted our approach to reporting on these commitments from a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) focus to an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) model aligned with the best practices of internationally recognized ESG reporting frameworks, including the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). In 2021 alone, our people developed a program dedicated to identifying, assessing and mitigating the highest safety risks at our facilities. Through this initiative, our team members can assess activities with the highest potential for serious injury or fatality and implement focused safety trainings, education and knowledge sharing across the company, creating and maintaining a safer workplace. Although our aggregates-focused business consistently has the lowest greenhouse gas emissions footprint among our construction materials peers, we are committed to doing our part to reverse global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions trends and reduce potential impacts of climate change worldwide. In this report, you will find interim targets for reducing Scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions as well as our commitments to reporting Scope 3 emissions and developing goals in line with science-based targets. Our commitment to a more ESG-focused approach extends to our Board of Directors, which adopted a resolution in 2021 vesting direct oversight of ESG with its Governance Committee. Although this report does not incorporate data from U.S. Concrete, which Vulcan acquired in August 2021, we are fully integrating U.S. Concrete’s operations into our ESG program so that our entire enterprise is able to continuously improve our efforts to maintain a more environmentally and socially sustainable organization.
