From our CEO and President:

At Hayward, our vision — to inspire happiness and well-being through safe, smart and sustainable solutions — drives everything we do, including our impact on the world.

Since our founding in 1925, we have continuously evolved, always pushing ourselves to do better. Today, we deliver innovative technology, exceptional products and outstanding service that transform the experience of water. Throughout our journey, Hayward has always been committed to being a good steward of the environment and our solutions have allowed us to uphold sustainability.

We recognize it is more important than ever to champion sustainability and to act on our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks and opportunities. This is why we have sharpened our focus on what's most important to Hayward and created a structured ESG framework represented by four pillars: Products, Planet, People and Principles. These four pillars outline how we operate responsibly for our business and for our stakeholders, all while continuing to innovate and develop products that better the world.

From creating energy-efficient, environmentally sustainable products to advocating for pool safety, I am proud to be part of a global company that is driving meaningful impact and operating in a responsible and ethical manner.

We look forward to sharing our progress with you as we continue on our ESG journey.

Kevin Holleran, CEO and President

In 2021, as a newly public company, we conducted our first materiality assessment to identify and understand the ESG topics that are most significant to our stakeholders, both old and new.

In partnership with a third-party expert, we engaged employees, customers, investors, suppliers and third-party organizations to evaluate and identify 29 key ESG topics. Based on the feedback received from each stakeholder, we developed a strategy around the key priority topics from our materiality matrix in the framework below.
