Letter from Our CEO
Tensar welcomes the opportunity to highlight our environmental, social, and governance principles in this inaugural ESG Report.
Since our invention of the original geogrid in 1978, and the invention of the original Geopier® foundation improvement system in 1991, our culture has been built on innovation, continuous improvement, integrity, teamwork and social responsibility. Our commitment is not only to technology and industrial progress, but also to our relations with our employees, the communities we serve, and in the cost-effective, carbon-saving solutions we deliver to our customers each and every day.
We take pride in doing our part to make the world a more sustainable and resilient place. Our technologies help reduce the use of natural resources and improve the carbon footprint of infrastructure and other projects. We think of these benefits as central to our value proposition.
Above all, the health and safety of our people remains our top priority. But we also prioritize the holistic wellness of our employees beyond their physical health by providing support for personal and professional development and mental health. And finally, we strive to ensure that our culture is one that embraces diversity and supports inclusivity across our many regions and business units.
We are especially enthusiastic about our planned acquisition by CMC, Inc. because we believe both companies are built on rich histories of innovation, commitments to our customers' success, and similar values guiding our respective visions. Joining CMC will provide a powerful accelerator to our ESG efforts and, together, we look forward to meeting the growing expectations for sustainable solutions globally.
As we move forward, we plan to continue regularly reporting on our ESG strategy and progress. We are also looking forward to the opportunity to continue providing value to our customers, not only through cost-effective solutions to their infrastructure challenges, but also through better environmental outcomes, a greater sense of social responsibility, as well as ethical business operations.
