Letter from the Chairman & CEO

Chairman & CEO of Benjamin Moore, Dan Calkins standing outside wearing a blue suit.

Though the past year has been marked by the ongoing need to pivot and adapt in the face of challenges, including the enduring pandemic and supply chain disruptions, Benjamin Moore has remained steadfast in our commitment to stakeholders and our long-standing pledge toward a more sustainable future. With an emphasis on the continued evaluation of employee needs and benefits, prioritization of high-demand products and support for charitable partners/programming, these efforts remain at the forefront of our company culture.

Premium quality coatings have been at the foundation of the brand for 138 years. Through third-party certifications, the Benjamin Moore Green Promise® and the product portfolio optimization initiative currently underway, our offering reflects the changing needs of customers and our obligation to the environment. To that end, we are focused on expanding manufacturing capacity and increasing production to better meet demand, as well as add jobs to local communities.

Benjamin Moore has also ramped up efforts in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) space with the establishment of a Diversity Advocacy Group, consisting of employees from across the organization belonging to underrepresented groups and their allies. Though there is work to be done, we are committed to creating positive change within the organization and have already made progress toward education and awareness.

Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting focuses on four pillars – product, people, planet and partnerships. The company’s accomplishments in these areas as well as our values and continued dedication to quality are reviewed within the 2021 Corporate Responsibility report. With sustainability as a key element of our business strategy, I am confident that this work will continue to create opportunities for long-term growth as we look ahead to a better tomorrow.
