COMMERCIAL METALS COMPANY 2015-2016 SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 15 ENGAGING OUR STAKEHOLDERS We consider our customers, employees, communities and shareholders to be key stakeholders in our sustainability initiatives. Engaging with our stakeholders is an integral part of our approach to sustainability. We seek to establish relationships that build trust and mutual understanding, and support our efforts to create shared value. Here are some examples of how we engaged with stakeholders in 2015 and 2016. Stakeholder How We Engaged CUSTOMERS CMC continued to listen to our customers’ feedback and suggestions, and in 2016 we expanded our customer survey program to include project-specific surveys for our fabrication customers. EMPLOYEES In 2015, CMC leveraged a digital platform to enhance our annual performance appraisal and career planning process. Feedback from our employees on the new platform was extremely positive. COMMUNITIES  In the last few years CMC has become more involved in local technical schools (e.g., Texas State University). These partnerships are win-win. The schools benefit from our donation of equipment, plant tours at local CMC facilities and having CMC employees as guest speakers in the classroom. CMC is able to build our profile and reputation with students, which helps us secure a pipeline of future talent. COMMUNITIES & INVESTORS  CMC continued to partner with the U.S. Department of Energy on the Better Buildings, Better Plants Program through 2015 and 2016. We have achieved significant change for each calendar year since our baseline in 2012 – 2.1% energy reduction in 2013, 4.2% reduction in 2014, 2.2% reduction in 2015 and 4.6% reduction in 2016.
