Let’s Continue the Sustainability Conversation…
Norwalk, CT — Our story from June 2019 – “Sustainability in the Office Environment and at Home”, garnered a number of responses, including the following from Jeremy Mooser, Director of Communications at Goodwill of Western and Northern Connecticut:
“Goodwill has often been referred to as “The original recycler”, and we like that title!
The model of sustainability in Goodwill that people don’t think of immediately, is the direct role material donations play in the sustainability of the communities we serve.
That’s a really great way to think about sustainability locally, or at least one of the impacts of acting globally – more complex perhaps than keeping the planet healthy, we are simultaneously providing sustainability of growth in Connecticut communities through job training and support services from the proceeds of our recycling/ reselling model.”
We also received this tidbit we wanted to pass along as well:
The 2019 list of the Global 100, compiled by a Canada-based sustainability-focused financial information company and magazine, Corporate Knights, which ranks large corporations across the globe on their performance reducing carbon and waste, their gender diversity among leadership, revenues derived from clean products, and overall sustainability. This is its 15th year, beginning with a list of about 7,500 companies, all of which generate more than $1 billion in annual revenue.1 Here is the link to the list: https://www.corporateknights.com/reports/2019-global-100/2019-global-100-results-15481152/
“In the end, we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught.”
Baba Dioum, an environmentalist, included this in his speech made in 1968 In New Delhi, India, to the general assembly of the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
