At Kimball Electronics, our commitment to ESG has been a part of who we are since our founding in 1961. We are proud to be responsible guardians of both economic and environmental resources, and because of this, our employees, customers, share owners and communities truly benefit from the Company's presence, contributions and actions.
“I’m proud to know that our ESG philosophies, with roots dating back to our company’s founding in 1961, are more than just words to us: they are our actual practices; they are our promises to the world. While 2021 has posed business challenges that have, at times, kept me awake at night, I have never doubted our people’s collective passion to do the right thing when it comes to our environmental, social, and governance practices.”
– Don Charron, Chairman and CEO
