At Hayward, we believe that a healthy environment is necessary for the well-being of our people and our business, and is the foundation for a sustainable and strong economy.

We are committed to monitoring our environmental impacts and reducing our footprint where possible, all while encouraging our stakeholders to do the same.

Our first greenhouse gas emissions analysis was calculated using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard.

Across our operations, we minimize waste by recycling and follow a closed loop model to repurpose process yield for reuse in production, avoiding consumption of virgin material. We also recycle our waste through resale to avoid disposal.

We've also installed motion-activated lighting at all distribution and manufacturing facilities so that we're only using electricity when needed. At our facility in Wuxi, China, we completed the installation of solar panels that generate 20% of our electrical power in June 2022, reducing our carbon emissions by 1790 tons annually.

Within our own operations, as of 2022, 70% of our molding machines are fully electric or hybrid, resulting in a 20-40% energy savings compared to typical hydraulic machine use. We are expanding our electric molding machine fleet with more machines migrating to electric every year. Within our facilities, we are moving away from propane fueled fork trucks to electric power and integrating tuggers to replace forklifts with the capability of carrying multiple loads in one trip.

Hayward maintains a longstanding relationship with approximately 900 suppliers and we pride ourselves on having an average relationship of over 15 years across our top 30 suppliers and a 40+ year relationship with our top vendors. We have 10+ year relationships with 9 out of our top 10 suppliers, with an average of 19 years of supply continuity.

We have dedicated supply chain employees who manage global sourcing, strategic consolidation and supplier relationships and regularly perform an audit on any new supplier. In 2021, we launched a new initiative to partner with minority and female-owned businesses as direct materials and services supply partners.

When it comes to materials sourcing, up to 10% of all resin used in many of our products consist of recycled material, avoiding purchases of up to 3 million pounds as of 2021. We set internal targets on an annual basis to track our recycling within our own manufacturing to continue to reduce our impacts across our supply chain.
