we embrace and work diligently to integrate the concept of
sustainability into our products and corporate actions as we carry
out our daily business activities.
Sustainable development meets the needs of our
current generation without destroying the ability of future
generations to meet their needs. The Native American Iroquois
Confederacy maintained a similar policy called the Seventh
Generation Philosophy. The chiefs of the Iroquois Nations were
required to bear in mind the effects of their actions on their
descendents for seven generations.
Sustainability also can be defined as an attempt to provide the best
outcomes for the human and natural environments both now and in the
indefinite future. Sustainability affects every level of
organization, from the local neighborhood to the entire planet.
we acknowledge our responsibility for the choices we make today, as
those choices shape the world of tomorrow. We incorporate in our
decision making process the possible outcomes of our actions and how
we can create the most sustainable society for ourselves, our
children and for generations to come.
