A Message From Our CEO
Gore was founded on a belief that technology and humanity intersect to amplify the impact we can make on society. Today, we express those foundations of who we are, and also who we aspire to be in a promise, Together, improving life. The injustices facing black Americans have made it clear that our Associates, our partners, our customers and our communities cannot fully experience “together,” and improve life, until we confront racism.
COVID-19: Our Current Path Forward
Updated May 11, 2020
As COVID-19 continues to affect our world, Gore’s commitment to our Associates and their families, our communities, and our customers remains stronger than ever. We look forward to bringing all of us back together as soon as possible, but we will do so with the utmost care and integrity.
Coming Together – Supporting Solutions to COVID-19
From the development of prototype mask covers to our collaboration with customers on additional personal protective solutions, we are rapidly applying our materials science expertise in the fight against COVID-19. And as the pandemic evolves, we will continue to identify new opportunities to help through our innovation efforts, collaboration with others and engagement in local communities.
Addressing Sustainability Challenges
As the planet faces a pandemic, we remain committed to applying our scientific knowledge and passion for innovation to address sustainability challenges. While serving as a responsible steward of air, water and energy resources, we will take additional concrete steps in our operations to realize specific goals of reducing facility-related carbon emissions.
