Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Community Involvement includes in-kind and financial donations, employee volunteer days, or enduring partnerships that have the power to bring positive, measurable change to both your company and the communities in which you operate.

Environmental Sustainability


Environmental sustainability is increasing attention to global environmental concerns, providing the incentive for business to assess their environmental impact—such as the usage of natural resources and carbon footprint.

Value of Corporate Citizenship


Corporate citizenship delivers value when companies optimize their core competencies to address opportunities, goals, and operating context issues in the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) aspects of business. Research reveals that strong corporate social and environmental performance is no longer simply a "nice to have" element of a company's overall strategy. In today's global economy, corporate responsibility is a business imperative.

Sustainability Reporting


Sustainability reporting is the disclosure and communication of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals—as well as a company’s progress towards them. The benefits of sustainability reporting include improved corporate reputation, building consumer confidence, increased innovation, and even improvement of risk management.
