Merit’s corporate sustainability strategy focuses on adding business value by assessing the risks and opportunities of our ESG aspects as well as addressing areas where we can have the greatest impact. We achieve this through our Enterprise Risk/Opportunity Management Program, engaging with stakeholders, and considering the areas where we can have the greatest impact.
Our environment, social and governance (ESG) priorities are more critical than ever to our shared success at Merit and to our relationship with the world. As a global company, we understand the long-term health of our Merit team members, our customers, and our communities rely on a healthier, more sustainable and equitable world.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT & CEO
Merit team members across the globe are our most important and greatest asset. Our people are passionate about making a difference where they live and work. I often find our greatest achievements begin with a single spark produced by a team member who chooses to ask the question of why. These individual sparks then turn into trailblazing ideas that result in sweeping change within our organization. As we continue to face forward and overcome challenges such as climate change and social equity for all, I am confident that Merit remains a force for positive impact. On countless occasions, we have met challenges with a spirit of creativity and collaboration – never forgetting that great things happen with the smallest of sparks.
