Here’s a question every CEO must ask: How are my company’s environmental and social contributions benefiting society as well as our business?
The question includes both environmental and social initiatives, because sustainability has evolved from social expectation to economic imperative.
For us, an important element of measuring sustainability is how we are improving manufacturing efficiency and productivity.
Just as important is our social and workforce impact. Are we improving our communities? Are we planning for and educating the workforce of the future?
Preparing this workforce is about more than staying connected to college curriculum.
Our efforts are rooted in encouraging young people to learn about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in elementary school, to ignite a passion and curiosity that will engage them through their school years and foster an interest in a STEM career.
