Benchmark Electronics, Inc., a global provider of engineering, design, and manufacturing services, released its first Sustainability Report, which it will publish on an annual basis. The newly announced report now available on the company's website, outlines Benchmark's environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts and includes specific achievements across the global organization.

"The 2021 Sustainability Report marks a major step forward in Benchmark's sustainable journey, as it formalizes our commitment to regularly communicating our ESG priorities and actions," said Jeff Benck, president and CEO, Benchmark. "I'm proud of our entire global team for their passion and dedication to our ESG endeavors that include reducing our energy consumption and waste, creating an inclusive culture, and improving the communities in which we live and work."

Highlighted in the report are the five key tenets of Benchmark's ESG strategy, which guide the company's sustainability efforts. These tenets include environmental responsibility, our people, our community, governance, and the organization's COVID-19 response. The report also features a compelling recounting of the company's actions and achievements within these tenets and critical data quantifying the progress the company has made in sustainability performance. 

"We are making tremendous strides in our ESG endeavors," said Stephen Beaver, senior vice president, general counsel and chief legal officer, Benchmark. "This report allows us to share our progress with stakeholders and customers and communicate the baseline we will use to track and improve diversity, equity and inclusion; reduce our environmental impact, and enhance our local communities."

They’ve handed you a golden opportunity to zig when everybody else is zagging. If your competitors are small- and mid-sized businesses that supply the DoD, their concerns aren’t too different from yours. Sure, this CMMC stuff is coming, but it doesn’t seem urgent, or does it?

Guillaume Chauvet of ICAPE Group, vice president of sales-Americas East, discusses managing the supply chain through transportation issues, raw material shortages, and longer production times. He also details how he helps customers manage different suppliers and divergent technologies. "As we’ve grown, we have opened a big office and lab in China to control the quality of our Asian suppliers," said Chauvet. "Now we also have inspectors in the factory who just check the quality of the product directly out of the lines. We send the product to the lab to validate the sample before the customer receives the boards."
