Sustainability is a word that many companies like to use, but few exemplify. A company that embraces sustainability takes responsibility for the impact of its operations on the environment. That means noting and taking action on the opportunities, threats, and challenges that impact climate change and public health due to their products, manufacturing, waste, and supply chain operations. Some examples of corporate social responsibility and sustainability solutions include:
- Community engagement and philanthropic giving
- Direct and indirect emissions
- Energy consumption for transportation, cooling, and heating
- Foreign labor conditions
- Material use, reuse, and recycling
- Water use and management
- Workplace and employee wellness
