Sustainability

Our Environmental, Social and Governance Programs

Kieran O’Sullivan
President, CEO, and Chairman of CTS Corporation

At CTS, our purpose is to enable an intelligent and seamless world.  We understand that we have a responsibility to help shape not only a smarter future, but one that is more sustainable for generations to come. Making sustainable business choices creates long-term value for our company, our stakeholders, and the communities in which we operate.

To that end, we support sustainable applications for the transportation end market where our products help reduce harmful emissions in commercial vehicles and support the electrification of passenger cars. In medical markets, CTS products enable less invasive health diagnostics through ultrasound technology and aid the targeted delivery of treatments to sites of disease.

We also understand that our success depends on fostering an inclusive and empowered work environment where all employees are respected and treated equally. With a business spanning the globe, we take the importance of continuing to strengthen the diversity of our workforce seriously and strive for our facilities and workforce to be reflective of our geographical footprint. Our Board of Directors is comprised of members who reflect a diverse set of skills, backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences, and we are proud that more than 40% of our board is comprised of female and minority directors.

Similarly, we value the communities in which we live and operate.  We are continuing our legacy of community outreach and support through the launch of CTS CARES, a global program designed to promote charitable giving and community involvement.

While we have taken meaningful steps towards enhancing our sustainable business practices, we recognize that there is more to do and we are committed to continuing to make progress on environmental, social, and governance initiatives in the future. 

Understanding the Impact of our Business

CTS is committed to carrying out business operations in a responsible manner. We aim to mitigate our impact on the environment, continuously strive to maintain a safe and healthy workplace for our employees, and act as a trusted partner to our customers and the communities in which we operate.

Environmental

Supporting Products that Positively Impact Society

We are proud of the role we play in developing and supplying our customers with components and applications used in innovative products that help enhance peoples’ lives and ensure a more sustainable future.

Non-Invasive Diagnostics

Our advanced piezoelectric ceramic materials are used in a variety of medical ultrasound and imaging equipment. This technology enables less invasive health diagnostics leading to short recovery and minimal scarring. 

Electric Vehicles (EV)

As the demand for electric vehicles continues to increase, manufacturers are challenged with designing vehicles that maintain performance expectations with as minimal a footprint as possible. We collaborate directly with OEMs to provide pedals and sensors that drive innovation in electric vehicles and improve performance and safety. 

IoT – The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a cornerstone of connecting live information, control mediums, and hubs to wireless devices. CTS crystal solutions minimize current consumption and provide key components for GPS receiver applications in a variety of industries.

Relentlessly Striving to Make a Positive Impact

Our people are our most valuable asset, and we are committed to recognizing and awarding their contributions to our ongoing success. We are similarly committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and operate.

Social

Robust Corporate Governance

Our corporate governance policies and practices are designed to create an environment of effective oversight and strong accountability, which in turn helps to safeguard our reputation and protect the long-term interests of our shareholders, employees, and other stakeholders.
