Sustaining Our Communities

In business terms, prosperity is often measured as profit. But profit is not the purpose of our business—rather it is how we fund our future and make our business sustainable for all stakeholders. With profit we acknowledge the investment of our owners, we bring the best products and services to our customers, we invest in our team members, we enhance our supply chain, and we partner with the communities in which we work. If we are not prosperous we can do less of these good things.

And with specific respect to our communities, it’s reciprocal: businesses prosper in healthy communities and prosperous communities cause businesses to flourish. This relationship between community and business underscores one of our key sustainability philosophies: as we prosper, it’s our responsibility to serve our community as best we can in big and little ways.
