Anti-Corruption and Export Management Compliance

AZZ and its subsidiaries are committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and conducting every business transaction with integrity.

AZZ employees with export-related job responsibilities are required to have a working knowledge of export control laws and regulations, especially those governing their specific job functions, as well as a working knowledge of company export control policies and procedures. AZZ employees must apply due diligence to ensure they abide by all U.S. Export Control Laws and Regulations and comply with AZZ export control guidelines, policies, and procedures.

Our Anti-Corruption Policy supports the Company’s commitment to the highest ethical, professional, and legal standards by providing practical guidance to Company employees on steps we must take to address corruption risks in our daily work.

Commitment to Sustainability

AZZ builds in sustainability as part of our process.

AZZ is committed to providing products and services in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner.  A cornerstone of our commitment is to provide products and services that support sustainable infrastructure development while striving to reduce the amount of raw materials, energy, and waste used during the manufacturing process.  For more information regarding our committment to sustainability, please visit our sustainability page.

Conflict Minerals

AZZ and all of its subsidiaries are committed to the responsible sourcing of minerals worldwide.

AZZ supports efforts to end human suffering and environmental harm associated with certain minerals that may have originated in the Democratic Republic of Congo (the “DRC”) and adjoining countries, and is committed to the ethical sourcing of any minerals used in our manufacturing and supply chain.  AZZ is dedicated to continue to comply with all legislative and regulatory requirements to help end civil conflict and human rights abuses in the DRC region.

The process of tracing the origin and chain of custody of minerals through a global supply chain is sometimes complicated and challenging because some component suppliers or sub-suppliers may lack the resources to trace minerals all the way back to their source.  AZZ endeavors in good faith to continue to have its suppliers exercise reasonable due diligence to evaluate their respective supply chains to reduce the risk that minerals in our supply chain come from mines that finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC region. We evaluate our suppliers annually and report on the same.

Our commitment includes respecting the dignity and worth of all individuals, encouraging all individuals to reach their full potential, and providing equal opportunity for both personal and professional development to all employees.

We seek to maintain high ethical standards and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, which extends to all of our Vendors. All AZZ Vendors should adhere to our Vendor Code to help AZZ maintain its ethical and socially responsible culture.

Community Involvement

We are using our resources to help make a positive difference in our communities. Caring is an important part of our culture.

AZZ formed the AZZ Cares Foundation in 2018, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing charitable support and assistance to AZZ employees and their immediate family members who are impacted by an emergency, disaster, or personal hardship, including death, medical emergency, financial emergency, physical or natural disaster. Additionally, the Foundation provides charitable financial support to other 501(c)(3) organizations located in the communities in which AZZ employees live and work.
