About us

Environmental, Social, and Governance

We’re committed to changing the way we do business to become better stewards of the environment, our communities, our people, and the industries we serve. It’s a constant work in progress, and we’re all in.

DCM strives to be an industry leader in sustainable best practices that soften our footprint. It makes good business sense, and it’s good for the communities in which we live and work. We’re grateful to be in a position to give back and make a real difference to causes that are important to all of us.”

Richard Kellam, President & CEO

Why ESG matters to DCM

At DCM, we’re continually striving to be better corporate citizens. Not simply because it’s the right thing to do, but because we want to create the kind of world—and workplace—that encourages everyone to protect the environment, help each other out, and act with integrity.

That means focusing our efforts in areas where we know we can make the biggest difference. Here’s what we’re doing:
