Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

At GMS, providing construction supplies and services efficiently and conveniently is fundamental to our business. We recognize our business needs to develop in alignment with and in anticipation of the priorities of our key stakeholders, including our customers and shareholders. That is why we focus on “doing the right thing” in a way that is best for our business, the environment, and the communities in which we operate. We are committed to conducting our business in a manner that aligns with our values, promotes environmental sustainability, embodies socially responsible business practices, protects data used in our business, and supports our employees.

Our Executive Leadership Team and ESG Project Leads review our ESG strategy and are responsible for bringing ESG and sustainability initiatives forward for our business and planning for the future. The GMS Board of Directors (“Board”), via the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, oversees our ESG programs and performance. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee receives quarterly updates from the ESG Project Leads.

We continuously seek to identify and measure the ESG impacts of our business to the long-term value for our stakeholders, including our employees, customers, and shareholders. Our focus on sustainability is guided by our stakeholders and third-party frameworks, including the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (“SASB”) Multiline and Specialty Retailers & Distributors Standard and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (“TCFD”).

This report demonstrates our commitment to ESG initiatives and provides a holistic view of our governance, oversight, policies, programs, and performance regarding ESG matters. We look forward to obtaining feedback from our stakeholders and building on the initiatives outlined in this report as we further develop our ESG practices and disclosures.
