Reaching Higher

VULCAN'S SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY COMMITMENT TO YOU

FROM TOM HILL, OUR CHAIRMAN & CEO

WHEN IT COMES TO MAKING GOOD ON OUR COMMITMENTS TO SAFETY & HEALTH, ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP, PEOPLE AND COMMUNITY, WE’RE REACHING HIGHER. THAT’S THE VULCAN WAY.

In 1957, Charles W. Ireland, Vulcan’s first president and chief executive officer, told the company’s stockholders: “Vulcan and its employees have endeavored to continue to earn the title of good citizen.”

This ethic has guided us in becoming the nation’s largest producer of construction aggregates and a major producer of other construction materials that form the building blocks for our nation’s roads, bridges, homes, hospitals, schools, office buildings and places of worship.

Today we supply infrastructure markets coast-to-coast, serving 20 states, Washington D.C., the Bahamas and Mexico. But it’s the everyday actions of our 8,700 employees that set us apart from the rest of the industry.

We believe in “The Vulcan Way,” which means doing the right thing, the right way, at the right time. We foster a culture that encourages, supports and rewards our people to make good on our commitments to our stakeholders – our customers, fellow employees, shareholders and the communities we serve. Simply put, doing the right thing is good for our business, our environment and our society.

Our economic, social and environmental stewardship and sound business performance are at the core of our success.

We will continue to lead and exceed in these business practices, with a strong focus on community, health, safety, and wise management of land and environmental resources.

Our current and future success is built on a firm ethical foundation, formed more than six decades ago, that recognizes the importance of every stakeholder. As we continue to build on that legacy, we do so with a clear view of our responsibility to future generations, to the planet and to people – our own and the many we serve.

Sincerely,

TOM HILL
CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD, PRESIDENT & CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
