About Chroma Color

From Our CEO

Dear Customers, Team Members, Suppliers, and Investors,

In 2022, Chroma Color Corporation continued to make significant steps to promote sustainability and be responsible stewards of our Earth. This includes our commitment to providing sustainable color concentrate materials to our customers, reducing our own waste and energy consumption, and implementing environmentally responsible practices other companies in the plastics industry can also follow.

Our senior leadership team continues to evaluate all current operation and manufacturing practices to continue to build on our 2022 Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) roadmap.

Several months ago, our senior leadership team re-evaluated all current operation and manufacturing practices and updated our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) roadmap for 2023.

Our Continued Commitment for 2023:

1- Continue Sustainable Product Development for Our Customers: Chroma Color Corporation has developed color concentrates and additives using sustainable raw materials, such as recycled plastics, to reduce the environmental impact of its products.

2- Maintain Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Timely Sustainable Goals to positively impact our own company & our communities financially, and socially.

Our Chroma Color Board Members are also very committed to support of our programs. In addition, we continue to share our ESG results with our investor Arsenal Capital. I am very optimistic that we will achieve our ESG goals again for 2023 and stay focused on making the world better for our children and future generations.

In the following pages, you will find Chroma Color's Environment, Social, and Governance ESG Roadmap for 2023. If you require any further information, feel free to contact me.
