"Sustainability is an important factor in every decision we make because being socially and environmentally responsible is foundational to our success and a part of who we are," said Don Lindsay, President and CEO. "Our commitment to sustainability is led by our employees, who are focused on strengthening communities, protecting the environment, and contributing to a better world."
