MILWAUKEE – Rockwell Automation, Inc. (NYSE: ROK) the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, today published its 2020 Sustainability Report and launched a refreshed online content hub dedicated to sharing the company’s latest sustainability initiatives and outcomes.
The publication, formerly known as the Corporate Responsibility Report, highlights the company’s corporate responsibility and sustainability practices. It features powerful stories about how Rockwell supported and strengthened customers, employees, and communities. And it demonstrates how the company used automation technology and expertise to fight the coronavirus pandemic and help the world recover in 2020.
“When I look back on 2020, I believe it will be remembered as a time when our company’s culture and our big aspirations became especially visible through our actions,” Rockwell Automation chairman and CEO Blake Moret wrote in the introduction to the report. “How we make the journey is important, with highly engaged people who all feel they can and want to do their very best work, and who understand how their individual efforts are so crucial to accomplishing big things.”
In 2020, the company completed an extensive materiality assessment to update and further inform its sustainability strategy. From that data, Rockwell’s new sustainability priorities were defined under three sustainability pillars—Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG). Through these pillars, Rockwell is positioned to drive three outcomes:
- Sustainable customers: Enable its customers to achieve their own sustainability goals, making a positive impact on the world.
- Sustainable company: Create innovative, sustainable products and solutions, and foster a culture that empowers employees to operate safely, sustainably, and responsibly.
- Sustainable communities: Support the communities in which employees live and work, having an impact that extends beyond Rockwell.
