Rockwell Automation launches Corporate Responsibility Report

22 July, 2020

Rockwell Automation has launched its annual Corporate Responsibility Report (CRR), highlighting the company’s efforts during 2019. The CRR reflects Rockwell Automation’s commitment to placing corporate responsibility and sustainability practices at the core of its approach to customers, employees and communities.


Rockwell Automation aims to be a principal voice in the corporate responsibility and sustainability space. The 2019 CRR highlights the company’s successful initiatives to continue to build a more inclusive workplace for employees; help customers reduce emissions and waste; and be a catalyst for progress in local communities.

Corporate responsibility content hub

In conjunction with the publication of the 2019 CRR, Rockwell Automation has launched a new corporate responsibility content hub. Rockwell Automation’s corporate responsibility content hub will feature new stories and updates on its corporate responsibility progress throughout the year.

“Helping our customers be more productive and sustainable has been our focus since our founding over a century ago, and I’m especially proud of the progress highlighted in our 2019 Corporate Responsibility Report,” says Rockwell Automation chairman and CEO Blake Moret. “As we navigate a world forever changed by COVID-19, our dedication to the health and safety of our people, our customers, and our communities is top of mind for us – and we remain steadfast in our commitment to expand human possibility both inside and outside of the company.”

Rockwell Automation’s 2019 CRR showcases powerful stories of the company’s impact across the three pillars of its corporate responsibility and sustainability strategy. Highlights include:

• Sustainable Customers: In 2019, Rockwell Automation assisted a nonprofit organisation combatting malnutrition around the world, by creating state-of-the-art automated processes that helped the organisation feed significantly more people. In 2019 alone, the organisation saw a 20% increase in manufacturing capacity. In Asia-Pacific, Rockwell Automation worked with a renewable energy company off the coast of mainland Australia, to help the region meet its needs for electricity generation. Rockwell Automation did so by installing a new "Hydro Energy Hub" that switches to 100 percent renewable solar and wind energy when conditions allow.

• Sustainable Company: In 2019, Rockwell Automation recycled or reused 8,500 tons of its 9900 tons of waste generated. Additionally, the organisation achieved a worker safety rate of 0.37 cases per 100 employees, exceeding its goal of 0.40 for the year. Rockwell Automation earned a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index and was recognised as one of the Ethisphere Institute’s World’s Most Ethical Companies.

• Sustainable Communities: Rockwell Automation’s total giving for 2019 totaled almost US$9 million, with a focus on STEM education, talent and equity, and disaster relief and recovery programs. In addition to in-kind support, Rockwell Automation employees mentored 221 global teams through the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology (FIRST) programme, an initiative aimed at inspiring young people to be science and technology leaders. In North America, Rockwell Automation’s Academy of Advanced Manufacturing (AAM) offers technical education to upskill military veterans for successful careers after the military.
