About This Report
Stanley Black & Decker’s ESG report updates stakeholders on our strategies and progress toward our commitments and is organized in four main subsections: People/Empower Makers; Products/Innovate with Purpose; Planet/Create a More Sustainable World; and Governance. It also includes a sustainability scorecard of key performance indicators and links to a materiality assessment.
Stanley Black and Decker has a longstanding commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, including human rights, fair labor practices, the environment and anti-corruption. As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), Stanley Black and Decker supports the UNGC’s ten principles. We have applied these principles in the strategy and operations of our company, and our action on these topics is expressed throughout our reporting materials—including the CEO letter in our annual ESG report.
This report has been prepared in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards (Core option), which continues to guide the evolution of our reporting on environmental, social and governance performance. We also publish disclosures under three Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) sections: Industrial Machinery and Goods Manufacturing; Appliances Manufacturing; and Electrical and Electronic Equipment Manufacturing.
This report includes forward-looking statements about our business plans, initiatives and objectives, which may change based on subsequent developments.
