(Nasdaq: CECE) ("CECO"), a leading environmentally-focused, diversified industrial company whose solutions protect people, the environment, and industrial equipment, announced today it has published its inaugural Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG") report.

"CECO recognizes that as a company, we have a responsibility to reduce our own impact on the environment as well as lead in developing solutions to address global environmental challenges for our customers," said Todd Gleason, CECO Chief Executive Officer. "We are proud to publish our inaugural ESG report that details our efforts not only to help businesses across the globe provide cleaner water and reduce air and noise pollution, but also to show how we are doing our part as a company to be better stewards of the environment. A few weeks ago we celebrated Earth Day but I would suggest that for CECO, every day is Earth Day as we strive to make a positive impact on the world around us."
Added Gleason: "CECO's mission and values have long empowered employees and partners to embrace the central tenets of ESG and what it represents. While we are early in our formal ESG journey, it has already strengthened our resolve to make a positive impact."
