The Strategic Value of Corporate Social Responsibility

Jim Owens, President and CEO of H.B. Fuller.2018 was a year of transformative growth for H.B. Fuller. We expanded our company’s footprint globally through recent acquisitions, including Adecol and Royal Adhesives & Sealants, and continued to invest in our abilities to help customers connect what matters. The growth of our business also has brought an expanded ability to give back through our corporate social responsibility efforts.

We know that our company is best positioned for long-term success when all of our stakeholders – customers, employees, shareholders and communities – also are thriving. We believe that H.B. Fuller can and should play a role in creating positive change.

We recognize that to truly drive change, we must collaborate with others beyond our own operations. H.B. Fuller partners with customers, for example, to deliver solutions to the challenges they face, including the design and production of stronger, safer, greener consumer and durable goods. We understand the changing nature of the workforce around the world is driving changes in how companies can attract and retain the best talent, and we are focused on making H.B. Fuller a great place to work. And, we believe that the business case for investing in strong corporate social responsibility practices is clear, so we are more committed than ever before to operating responsibly and sustainably – and helping our external partners reach their goals.

Our commitment to corporate social responsibility begins inside our company. We continually strive to minimize the environmental impact of our operations, while holding safety as a top priority and providing a dynamic and supportive workplace for our employees. As our company continues to grow and change, we see opportunities to build upon our long history of strong corporate citizenship and continually improve our efforts in these areas.
