Company is formalizing its commitment to taking action on global environmental, social and health issues. 

3D Systems has launched its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiative—formalizing its commitment to taking action on global environmental, social and health issues. 

“3D Systems was founded on a spirit of innovation, and the work we do makes an impact on businesses, people’s lives and our environment,” says Dr. Jeffrey Graves, president, and CEO, 3D Systems. “With the launch of our ESG platform, we’re formalizing the commitment to the values and operating principles that have been part of the fabric of our company since its inception. We’re making an impact and proud to be part of a movement for change.”

The 3D Systems ESG initiative includes three areas core to the company’s daily operations:

Environmental responsibility highlights the commitment to identifying and advocating for more sustainable options to reduce 3D Systems’ and its customers’ effect on the environment by replacing, optimizing and creating processes that will help eliminate waste and reduce carbon emissions.

Social Responsibility demonstrates an alliance with social causes and giving back to the communities where its employees live and work. 3D Systems’ efforts as the COVID-19 pandemic escalated showcased its desire to give back as the company issued a call to action to its customers and partners to share resources—producing and delivering much needed nasopharyngeal swabs, ventilator valves and PPE.

The company also launched the 3D Systems Gives Back global giving campaign. This platform allows 3D Systems employees, families and friends to donate to charities that are providing assistance for the COVID-19 response, as well as those advancing efforts that target social justice and diversity.

Responsible Practices & Governance whereby the company holds itself accountable to ethical and responsible practices and policies, including those related to employee health and safety. For 3D Systems, conducting its business on a highly ethical level is at the core of its business principles. The company’s Code of Conduct sets the ethical and legal standards of behavior and business practices that are required of all its employees and those of its subsidiaries globally. As a result, 3D Systems requires all board members and employees to complete training and certify compliance with its Code annually.
