Strong partner for growth through
our ethical business practices,
technological innovations and
commitment to transparency.

A Message from Our CEO
Dear Valued Stakeholders,

ESCO Technologies proudly presents our first annual sustainability report. Our company has a strong and long-held dedication to conducting business responsibly. Ethics are core to our culture. As part of our commitment, ESCO recognizes the growing global need to mitigate climate change, protect our workers and enhance our communities. Business and political developments in recent years demonstrate that these challenges will require the collaborative effort of all involved to find solutions.

With this in mind, ESCO has a duty to inform our stakeholders about company practices and strategies that impact our sustainability. Transparency is very important to our business. Publishing our report demonstrates our next step in the important journey of sharing and improving our sustainability performance. We will continue to enhance our transparency and build upon our reporting in the future.

ESCO’s guiding priority is to create targeted, long-term growth that benefits our shareholders. We do this by continually investing in product innovation, making selective acquisitions to grow our capabilities and maintaining a multi-segment platform to diversify risk. Our subsidiaries strive for excellence and demonstrated another strong year of financial performance.

Sustainability is an essential part of achieving our vision. In Fiscal Year 2016, ESCO completed a materiality assessment to identify the most important environmental, social and governance (ESG) topics for our company. This report reflects our continuing commitment to integrating sustainablity into our business model. Some highlights of our achievements include:

  • Conducting an analysis of our environmental, social and governance impacts to identify and prioritize our most important ESG topics
  • Completing a carbon footprint analysis to quantify greenhouse gas emissions across our major facilities
  • Engaging with our stakeholders on sustainability topics

As a holding company with numerous subsidiaries and global operations, ESCO faces the challenge of efficiently tracking sustainability performance at all facilities. We are working to enhance and standardize our data collection and reporting efforts over time. Looking to the future, our goal is to set targets and continually improve on the benchmarks we have identified.

We hope you find this report informative and beneficial to your understanding of ESCO Technologies. The foundation for sustainability we have outlined will be an enduring piece of our business model and is an instrumental part of our vision to foster long-term growth.

With best regards on behalf of our team,

Vic Richey
Chairman, Chief Executive Officer & President
