MEASUREABLE IMPROVEMENT

Materion tracks overall environmental compliance performance using the Environmental Reportable Incident Rate (ERIR) metric. In 2022, Materion had significantly lower environmental non-conformances than the prior two years. We attribute this improvement to proactive actions taken post-pandemic including enhancement of employee training efforts and the strengthening of environmental compliance tools. Materion fully investigates all environmental incidents to identify root-causes, disseminates findings, and deploys corrective actions across the organization. Materion anticipates reaching performance at or better than pre-pandemic levels as we further enhance our management communications, foster our employee culture, and continue our on-going deployment of the ISO 14001 certified environmental management system across all Materion operating facilities.
