Corporate Responsibility

We are aware of the effects that the many decisions we make at Carlisle have for our people, our customers, the communities where we do business, our suppliers, our investors and the environment. We are committed to continually finding ways to become more economically, socially and environmentally responsible, and in doing so, becoming a better global corporate citizen.

Sustainability is an essential element of our fundamental business strategy. Using our core strengths in our diversified businesses we share innovations and best practices across our companies and across geographies, capitalizing on our competencies in order to build on our reputation for corporate responsibility.

Our values provide the framework for our commitment to corporate responsibility. This is supported and is a natural outgrowth of our operating principles and Carlisle’s Business Code of Ethics.

Going forward, we are committed to corporate responsibility and to finding new solutions to old problems. As we continue to find ways to make our products more efficiently, and with less impact on our environment, we fully intend that our workplaces will be safer, our employees more productive and Carlisle’s energy footprint will be less than it is today. We will drive continuous improvement through our Carlisle Operating System.
