Report: MRC Global Highlights Environmental Efforts

The company said it enhanced its internal ESG Committee with executive-level leaders to further integrate ESG into its business strategy.
Houston-based MRC Global expects second-quarter 2022 sales to be up approximately 14% over the first quarter, according to a preliminary earnings report released July 7.

On June 22, Houston-based PVF distributor MRC Global published its 2022 Environmental, Social Responsibility & Corporate Governance Report. The report describes MRC Global’s mission to: 

  • Participate in the energy transition
  • Minimize greenhouse gasses and reduce pollution
  • Reduce its carbon footprint
  • Maintain a safe workplace
  • Develop a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace
  • Govern ESG risks and opportunities

To reach these goals, MRC Global said it made two organizational changes in 2021. First, MRC Global enhanced its internal ESG Committee with executive-level leaders to further integrate ESG into the company’s business strategy. Second, the company appointed its first vice president of ESG to lead the global effort, MRC Global said.

“Our employees take pride in working for a company that is committed to operating sustainably, ethically and efficiently to create value for all of our stakeholders,” said Rob Saltiel, president & CEO. “Our company’s future success depends on the continued progress of these initiatives and their integration with our corporate strategy.”

The report also covered MRC Global’s reported accomplishments in: 

  • Aligning ESG goals with selected United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for the first time.
  • Increasing the use of renewable electricity in operations to 44% (up from 21% in 2020).
  • Reducing carbon emissions emitted by the company’s global fleet of vehicles by 10%.
  • Creating the new Downstream, Industrial and Energy Transition business sector to track revenue generated from alternative and renewable energy projects.
  • Maintaining safety performance that exceeds industry peer averages.
  • Increasing the number of women in director and above positions globally to 24% (up from 19% in 2020).
  • Increasing total recycling tonnage in the U.S. by 56% since 2017.
