Neither do we take from future generations by exhausting the non-renewable resources that are our planet’s priceless patrimony.
Viewed from this perspective, the idea of sustainability is not a trend or slogan, but the very essence of fairness and common sense. Anything less than an environmentally sustainable business process cannot qualify as a business at all, but rather is simply a form of cheating someone else – a neighbor, a great-grandchild – of what is rightfully theirs.

Internally, too, we have long made sustainability and environmental responsibility a primary objective, from the fuel-efficiency of our commercial vehicles to the continuous monitoring and optimization of our facilities’ energy requirements to our company-wide recycling and waste management. Taken together, these practices help us ensure that the value we create never comes at someone else’s expense, and that our company and our planet will thrive together in harmony for many generations to come.
