LSB Industries, Inc. (“LSB” or “the Company”), (NYSE: LXU), today announced the publication of its initial priorities for addressing environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters related to its business and the communities in which it operates. An interactive document posted to the ESG section of the company website at https://lsbindustries.com/esg/, summarizes the key areas of focus with respect to LSB’s sustainability initiatives, which are associated with thirteen of the seventeen United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Clicking the UN-specific icons within the document enables readers to learn more about the purpose and progress of each of the UN goals.
“LSB is committed to setting goals that will reduce our environmental impact on the planet and improve the quality of life for everyone,” stated Mark Behrman, President and Chief Executive Officer of LSB Industries. “While we have been actively engaged in initiatives to improve our ESG performance for years, we understand the importance of publicly communicating our sustainability priorities to all our stakeholders on a regular basis. Our corporate culture and values are centered around caring for our environment, our employees and our communities and our entire team takes these obligations very seriously.”
The publication of its initial ESG priorities is the company’s first step in what it expects will be regular communications with stakeholders going forward. Future plans will be disclosed later this year, as the company continues to work on several opportunities to improve its sustainable development goals.
