At AZZ, managing expectations is a core value in doing what is right. We hold ESG in high regard, and it is fundamental in what we do.

One of the most rewarding aspects about being a part of AZZ Inc. is the opportunity to work with ethical and talented people that do the right thing for our customers and for our country every day. AZZ’s success and reputation was built upon a foundation of the highest social responsibility, standards, and business ethics. Managing expectations is a core value in doing what is right and AZZ’s commitment to Environmental, Social Responsibility, and Governance (ESG) matters is fundamental and embedded in everything we do.

No matter what job description, task or activity to be performed, nothing can compromise the value of our adherence to our ethics and the laws governing the jurisdictions we conduct business. Simply stated, operating with integrity and with high ethical standards is what AZZ strives for as our way of doing business. Our Corporate Social Responsibility consists of guidelines and policies for dealing with our customers, suppliers, other employees, competitors, the communities in which we conduct business, and the public with integrity and in an ethical and appropriate manner.

As AZZ expands increasingly into the global market, it is crucially important that everyone at AZZ personalizes and internalizes ESG into our standards, core beliefs, and our dedication to conducting business with the highest ethics.

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.

Conflict Minerals

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

esg, AZZ

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.
