Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
Embedding an EDI Culture
To successfully leverage the benefits of a diverse workforce, we recognize that an inclusive and equitable culture is crucial to attract and retain the best talent, enhance engagement, foster innovation, and ultimately strengthen our overall company performance. That is why Equity, Diversity and Inclusion “EDI” was identified as one of our top ESG focus areas and a critical enabler of our Vision 2030.
We developed an EDI vision, guiding principles and strategic priorities along with a three-year roadmap to promote an inclusive culture where diversity is valued and everyone can contribute, develop and advance.
Our vision is to have an inclusive culture where diversity is valued, differences are embraced and everyone has the opportunity to contribute, develop and advance.

We are committed to being intentional in our actions today, build accountability in all of us and measure our progress regularly. We firmly believe that celebrating and embracing diversity and ensuring all our team members are valued and feel a sense of belonging is essential to Methanex’s long-term success.
We recognize the importance of diversity at all levels of Methanex, starting with the Board. Board diversity promotes the inclusion of different perspectives and ideas and ensures Methanex has the opportunity to benefit from all available talent.

We strive to be a respected and valued corporate citizen by creating positive and sustainable impacts in the communities where we operate.
Building and maintaining our community relationships is core to who we are as a company and essential to our social license to operate. Our Stakeholder Relations Policy defines our goals to build positive relationships in the communities where we have significant presence, and to be accountable and responsive to the public.
We continually work to understand community interests, communicate information about our product and business activities, and address any community concerns. We do this primarily through Community Advisory Panels (CAPs), as well as stakeholder associations, open house days, community projects, seminars, community surveys and public meetings. The CAPs we have established at our manufacturing locations provide a valuable forum for open and honest communication between Methanex and our fence-line communities.
In addition to creating jobs and economic opportunities, we are committed to building and supporting healthy communities that are great places to live and work. In 2022, together with our employees, we donated $1.3 million and more than 4,000 hours of employee time to community efforts around the world.
