Our strong corporate culture and values inform everything we do and are embedded throughout our governance systems, processes and behaviours.

Methanex is focused on resilience against cyberattacks to protect our data, systems, assets and identities. When more employees began working remotely starting in 2020 due to COVID-19, it became even more important to apply cybersecurity measures and ensure our team members are equipped to play a key role in helping to mitigate cyber crime. In 2022, 100% of employees and contractors completed cybersecurity training
