Reaching Higher



I am pleased to share with you Vulcan Materials Company’s 2020 Corporate Social Responsibility Report.

In our more than 60 years as a publicly-traded company, our long-term success has been built on a culture of doing the right thing, the right way, at the right time for our stakeholders, including shareholders, communities and the people we serve, both in and outside the company. We call this culture The Vulcan Way, and it guides all we do. The Vulcan Way calls us to continuously improve our performance and reach our potential.

In an extraordinary and challenging year for our country and the world, I am especially proud of the resilience, compassion and capabilities demonstrated by our Vulcan family in 2020. Our people quickly adapted to the rapidly changing conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic while staying focused on keeping our teams safe and healthy, serving our customers and executing on our operating disciplines.

The year also provided tragic reminders of the intolerance and racism that persist in our society. At Vulcan, we know that these have no place in the world, and we are committed to fighting them in all their forms and supporting social justice in our communities. I’m proud of how our employees came together to listen to one another, learn from and support one another during such unsettling times.

Across the Vulcan family, we have supported each other in ways that truly define our Company’s unique and invaluable culture. Our commitments to our health and safety, our people, our communities and the environment and our governance guided us as we addressed both new and ongoing challenges. We also continued our focus on improving our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) disclosures and reporting, working consistently towards our goal of superior performance as measured by important ESG ratings services.

I am especially proud of the resilience, compassion and capabilities demonstrated by our Vulcan family in 2020.
