At Methanex, we believe that having a diverse team and an inclusive workplace creates a better culture, better decision making and a better company.
Embedding an inclusive culture
To successfully leverage the benefits of a diverse workforce, we recognize that an inclusive culture is crucial to attract and retain the best talent, enhance engagement, foster innovation, and ultimately strengthen our overall company performance. That is why Diversity and Inclusion “D&I” was identified as one of our top ESG focus areas and a critical enabler of our Vision 2030.
We developed a D&I vision, guiding principles and strategic priorities along with a three-year roadmap to promote an inclusive culture where diversity is valued and everyone can contribute, develop and advance.
Our vision is to have an inclusive culture where diversity is valued, differences are embraced and
everyone has the opportunity to contribute, develop and advance.
- We are committed to building an inclusive organization where everyone feels safe, respected and valued as their unique self.
- We are committed to a diverse organization that values different perspectives, backgrounds, skills and abilities.
- We are committed to fair and unbiased people practices that are transparent and consistently applied.
- Embed inclusive behaviours into Methanex’s culture.
- Build leadership commitment and accountability to D&I.
- Enhance the fairness, transparency and inclusiveness of people practices.
We recognize that D&I is a continuous journey and it will always be evolving. We are committed to being intentional in our actions today, build accountability in all of us and measure our progress regularly. We firmly believe that celebrating and embracing diversity and ensuring all our team members are valued and feel a sense of belonging is essential to Methanex’s long-term success.
We recognize the importance of diversity at all levels of Methanex, starting with the Board. Board diversity promotes the inclusion of different perspectives and ideas and ensures Methanex has the opportunity to benefit from all available talent.
We strive to be a respected and valued corporate citizen by creating positive and sustainable impacts in the communities where we operate.
Building and maintaining our community relationships is core to who we are as a company and essential to our social licence to operate. Our Stakeholder Relations Policy defines our goals to build positive relationships in the communities where we have significant presence, and to be accountable and responsive to the public.
We actively engage in community dialogue through stakeholder associations and networks; public meetings and forums; collaborative community projects and initiatives; community seminars, conferences, presentations, emergency planning meetings; and neighbourhood and public meetings.
In addition, we have established Community Advisory Panels (CAPs) at our manufacturing locations to promote communication between Methanex and our fence-line communities. These CAPs provide a valuable forum for open and honest communications.
