Furthermore, the representation of women in management roles has surged to 19%, surpassing the target of 15%, demonstrating the company’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity.

In 2022, Midas Safety began taking steps to create a better future by investing in communities, diversity, empowerment, and climate action projects like solar, wind, and biomass energy sources. The company began rolling out new sustainable products, providing customers with options that can help them achieve their own sustainability goals.

The company continues to work toward long-term sustainability and inclusivity goals. Last year, Midas Safety contracted for 3.5 MW of solar energy generation that will be commissioned in 2024. The company is also in a continuous process of acquiring new energy-saving technologies and equipment. These and other measures are expected to help continue reducing energy consumption and further minimize the company’s GHG footprint.

We will continue to strive every year to achieve better results and to leave a lasting legacy to future generations,” said Asif Malik, CEO, Midas Safety.
