The report highlights the company’s efforts to positively impact its culture, community, and the environment

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., April 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — C.F. Martin & Co® announced the release of their second annual Impact Report. The report is a way for the iconic guitar maker to share its commitment to being a socially responsible organization. The annual Impact Report details some of the company’s efforts and achievements in caring for their employees, local and global communities, and the environment in 2022.

“Sustainability is in our DNA. It’s built into everything we do,” said President and CEO Thomas Ripsam. “But to be clear, sustainability is about more than just the environment, it’s also about taking care of our employees and our community.”

Examples of the company’s efforts include the following: For employees in 2022, C.F. Martin & Co. conducted a nationwide salary study and increased wages across the organization to stay competitive and adjust for cost-of-living increases. For the community, the Martin Charitable Foundation delivered 72 grants totaling $471,000 to nonprofits in the Lehigh Valley region and around the country in 2022.  And for the environment in 2022, Martin supported reforestation efforts in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Pennsylvania. These are just three of the many initiatives detailed in the 2022 Impact Report.

“We can’t talk about any of our guitars without talking about sustainability. It plays into every decision we make as an organization. From the smallest of details to the largest initiatives, we are programmed to find the most sustainable way to accomplish our goals and help people unleash their inner artist,” said Ripsam.
