Accelerating our progress and expanding our positive impact on the world around us

Materiality Issues & Assessment

Addressing the focus areas that are most significant to our Company and stakeholders is a key component of our sustainability strategy. We are committed to driving meaningful progress –  in 2020, we announced new goals for the next phase of our sustainability journey.

  1. Environmental Footprint

    Doing Our Part for the Planet 


    We are committed to reducing the environmental footprint of our global operations. We take a continuous improvement approach to reducing our carbon emissions, energy use and waste, while expanding our sourcing of renewable energy and recycling methods.

  2. Product Blueprint

    Driving Sustainability Through Innovation


    The Sherwin-Williams Sustainability by Design initiative formalizes our approach to integrating sustainability into our innovation and product development process. We are also working to further define and extend our portfolio of “sustainably advantaged products.” Through life cycle thinking and a strong commitment to product stewardship, we continue to provide world-class products in a safe and responsible manner.

  3. Social Imprint

    Elevating a Culture of Safety, Inclusion and Community


    The safety of our global employee base is a top priority. We strive to create a culture of inclusion, diversity and equity where differences are welcomed, celebrated and appreciated, and everyone has the opportunity to succeed. We also care deeply about supporting and being active in the communities in which we live and work.

  4. Governance & Ethics

    Ensuring Appropriate Oversight and Accountability


    Our approach to sustainability performance is managed within a governance structure that enables broad engagement across the organization, while providing appropriate oversight and accountability throughout the Company.
