A Letter From Our CEO
To our fellow stakeholders and stockholders:
Thank you for your support of Montrose (Montrose Environmental Group or MEG). 2020 was a pivotal year for our company as we celebrated the commencement of our trading on the New York Stock Exchange on July 23rd. Since our founding, Montrose has redefined environmental responsibility as not just a set of principles, but as a business strategy.
A unique and compelling aspect of Montrose is that our financial results are directly tied to having a positive impact on the environment. We built our business by serving the needs of our clients and taking care of our people. We have since learned that the decisions we historically made are consistent with current Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards. Consistent with how we have operated in the past, I, along with our Board of Directors, our management team, and our colleagues around the world remain committed to integrating ESG considerations into our future decisions and strategy.
The purpose of sharing this initial report is to increase transparency into our decision frameworks for our stakeholders who value ESG considerations. An integral first step in this process is defining the ESG factors we believe are material to our business. To start, we define and disclose our practices in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (UN SDGs). Over the near- and longer-term horizons, we expect to integrate aspects of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
We will work hard to ensure the success of Montrose and a collective focus on ESG is core to that effort. Thank you for your commitment and support.
