“Our corporate vision to be a global leader of environmental solutions is fully intertwined with our ambition to be an ESG leader in the industry and is critical to successfully executing our ongoing growth strategy,” said Nick Grasberger, Chairman & CEO of Harsco Corporation. “Our clear vision of sustainable environmental solutions gives purpose to Harsco’s present and defines our future.”
The 2020 Harsco ESG Report is informed by leading sustainability reporting standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB).
Highlights of the report include:
