Communities and Economic Impacts

TPI provided significant indirect benefits to our communities through monetary community investments and tens of thousands of associates’ volunteer hours.

To guide our community engagement activities, we continue to follow our Company policies and procedures. All engagement events must align with TPI’s Core Values, benefit the community (either citizens or environment), and occur outside of scheduled work hours unless preapproved. Given the diversity in our locations, we adapt our engagement activities to the needs of these communities and values of our associates.

Associates take part in activities organized by TPI on their own time, allowing them to give back in ways that are most important to them and align with TPI’s Core Values. Our associates completed over 14,000 community engagement hours globally, and we intend to increase our community engagement as we hope COVID restrictions ease within our communities.

Community Impact Highlights

We remain proud of our associates globally and have highlighted the types of activities that were completed this year on pages 33 and 34 of our 2021 ESG report. Of note we are especially proud of our associates who knew that their jobs would be impacted sometime in 2021 and how they continued to give back to the communities where they lived and worked.

Community Improvements:

Our associates are proud of their communities and actively work to improve them. These improvements include activities such as school restoration projects, clean up after natural disasters and planting trees.

Health and Wellness:

Our associates embody our top Core Value of safety both in and outside of their work positions. Across the globe TPI’s associates participate in races and fund-raising events that provide support for areas such as cancer, among others.

Giving Back:

TPI associates enjoy giving back to their communities through donations. In 2021, our associates held several events where items were collected and distributed to local communities.

Pandemic Response:

TPI associates continue to be educated on the importance of COVID vaccinations and COVID-19 safety protocols in all facilities. In 2021, associates complied with global facility requirements to keep their peers, families, and communities safe.
