Since our founding in 1963, we have been committed to providing consumers with the expertise, service, and innovative products necessary to enjoy clean, safe and beautiful pools and hot tubs.
This past year we stepped up our efforts to best serve the interests of our stakeholders by formally launching our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) program. We established a working group to identify and prioritize the ESG factors most relevant for our business, guided by frameworks important to our stakeholders, such as the Sustainable Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the Task Force for Climate Related Disclosures (TCFD). Our priority ESG issues encompass strong corporate governance, diversity and inclusion, health and safety, ethics, environmental sustainability, and water safety.
We invite you to read more about our ESG priorities, initiatives, and progress in our inaugural 2020 ESG Report, which marks the beginning of Leslie’s journey. We have many initiatives underway, and important work ahead of us. Our Board and management commit to sharing our ongoing progress and goals on our ESG initiatives as we continue to strive to achieve both business excellence and a positive impact on our stakeholders, the environment, and the communities in which we live and work.
