RPM’s successful completion of the 2020 MAP to Growth Operating Improvement Program included the closure and consolidation of 31 manufacturing facilities and the institution of lean manufacturing disciplines and operating efficiency initiatives. Based on what the company was able to estimate given the limited data available from 2015, compared to 2021 on a per ton of production basis, the approximate reductions were as follows: greenhouse gas emissions by 40%, energy usage by 35%, and waste by 40%.
In September 2021, RPM appointed Tracy D. Crandall to lead the company’s sustainability efforts. As vice president – compliance and sustainability and associate general counsel, Crandall is responsible for the company’s global sustainability and environmental, social and governance initiative – Building a Better World.
“Sustainability is fundamental to who we are at RPM,” stated Frank C. Sullivan, Chairman and CEO of RPM International. “We are committed to being good corporate stewards with our products, for our people, and for the environment. This commitment is supported by a foundation built upon our values of transparency, trust and respect. Tracy’s enthusiastic leadership of RPM’s Building a Better World initiative will guide us along this journey and help us prioritize the areas where we can make the biggest impact.”
