Sustainability is Elemental
Sustainability: The capacity to endure. Sustainability as it relates to our business operations requires the reconciliation of environmental concerns, social equity and economic demands - also referred to as the "three pillars" of sustainability.
Elemental: a. Fundamental or essential;
b. Constituting an integral part;
c. Of such character to resemble a force of nature in power or effect.
Our corporate higher-calling: We believe that the capacity to endure is fundamental. Sustainability is elemental, it is of such character to resemble a force of nature. Sustainability is a fundamental and essential aspect of our organizational character. It is our focus. Corporate Responsibility activities are an integral part of our enterprise-level strategy that lays out a clear path forward. The Element of Sustainability™ adds significant value to business operations, ensuring that a profitable triple bottom-line is achieved, which only comes through working diligently toward benefiting not only the company, but as well the environment and the community or society at large. Our commitment to corporate responsibility ensures that we succeed in achieving our internal goals while achieving a greater good beyond our business efforts.
