Spotlight on You

On World Mental Health Day, October 10, Joan Christel, senior vice president - head of corporate citizenship and global inclusion at State Street, shared a video featuring State Street’s Chief Human Resources and Citizenship Officer Kathy Horgan. "The lines between work and life have blended so much that separation between the two is almost nonexistent," said Christel. "On World Mental Health Day, Kathy Horgan, Chief Human Resources and Citizenship Officer, reminds us that being 'always on' is NOT necessary."

Vivian Greentree, senior vice president, head of global corporate citizenship at Fiserv, shared proudly her op-ed in the new Fall issue of the Corporate Citizen, which she cowrote with Deborah Bradbard, a senior researcher at Institute for Veterans and Military Families. The piece highlights how employers can support veterans and military family members' mental health following the recent events in Afghanistan. Read the full issue now!

Member Companies in the News

Dow and Ralph Lauren released a manual on how to improve the cotton dyeing process in a sustainable and efficient way and to encourage other textile companies to adopt this system. Ralph Lauren was the first brand to use Dow's ECOFAST Pure treatment, allowing for a partnership to encourage other companies to transform the cotton dyeing process in global supply chains. "As fashion supply chains look to recover from impacts of the pandemic, there is a critical window to build more sustainable practices into production processes,” said Mary Draves, chief sustainability officer at Dow. “By collaborating today to scale a less resource intensive dyeing process, we can help address pressing challenges, like climate change and water resiliency, in the long-term.”

PSEG announced it has joined the Business Ambition for 1.5°C and the Race to Zero campaigns, in addition to releasing its 2021 Sustainability and Climate Report. These campaigns aim to mobilize support for a zero-carbon economy and to limit warming to 1.5°C.  “As part of our vision of achieving net-zero emissions by 2030, PSEG has already made significant emissions reductions in our operations,” said PSEG Chairman, President, and CEO Ralph Izzo. “Today, we are taking the next step by joining the Race to Zero and committing to develop science-based targets to help address the worst effects of climate change, particularly for vulnerable populations.”
