Introduction from Mike Quinn

In 2021 we formalised our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) program with a focus on responsible sustainability. Reporting through a coordinated framework allows us to take a more strategic view on the course of actions we pursue in delivering on our sustainable business vision. We are acutely aware of our responsibilities in the ESG area to both our employees and the wider community and are committed to delivering on them.

As part of this commitment and to be transparent and honest regarding the challenges facing Doncasters, we decided to publish our first ESG report covering 2020 and part of 2021, with a promise to release annually in Q1 from that point onwards. This report is, therefore, the first ‘regularly scheduled’ ESG report, updating the information published late last year to give a full view of 2021.

During 2021 COVID-19 continued to have a profound effect on how we lived our lives both at home and at work despite the vaccination programmes in the countries we operate in. As a result, our key focus during the year continued to be the safety and wellbeing of our employees and their families.

I remain immensely proud of the level of commitment and personal responsibility that our employees continue to display in the face of the challenges caused by COVID-19. Through their efforts, we have demonstrated to our customers that Doncasters is a serious, reliable partner by maintaining our operations where others may have struggled, ensuring the Company continued to deliver high-quality products on time.

As stated last year, I am encouraged by what I believe Doncasters can achieve. Though the pandemic has been tumultuous and tragic, COVID-19 has proven the commitment and dedication of our workforce. With the team and capital in place to deliver on our vision, we will continue to drive value creation for our shareholders and stakeholders alike with our ESG commitments to the forefront.

The Board of Doncasters and I would like to thank you for your continued support of the Doncasters Group.

Mike Quinn
Chief Executive Officer
