2010 Sustainablity Report
Post by Jessie Wuerst

We’re not the kind of company that toots our own horn very often – that’s not really our style. But just this once, we’d like to whistle a note or two. Our 2010 Sustainability Report recently was affirmed as meeting the “B” Level content standards of the Global Reporting Initiative – the international standards setter for sustainability reporting.

Given three levels of reporting – C (the entry level), B and A – we knew that the mid-range level was a good fit for our reporting about our impacts on the environment, the economy and our society…at least for now. And after review of our report by the Netherlands-based GRI, we were pleased that they agreed with the level and quality of information we provided.

Take a look at the blog posting we did when the report was issued: “Sustainability means more than just being green” or visit our report here. We hope you find it of interest.

An important part of reporting is making sure the content is aligned with what our stakeholders – customers, shareholders and others – want to know about us. If you click on the Feedback link in the report there’s an easy way for you to tell us what you think of our 2010 report and give us your thoughts about what should be included in the next one. We know that we’re on the right track, and we’re committed to making these reports informative, transparent and as useful to you as possible.
