We are excited to announce that we have received the Better Business Bureau’s 2017 Torch Award for Environmental Stewardship! The Torch Awards spotlight businesses that demonstrate excellence and who operate with trust and integrity with their clients.
The Environmental Stewardship award celebrates businesses that have made a commitment to sustainable energy and green initiatives. This is a new category for the Torch Awards and we couldn’t be more proud to be the inaugural award winners!
The win was determined by three categories:
Employee Education and Community Involvement
We firmly believe that greatness is not about what you have, but what you give. Our company’s success is measured by our impact on the world around us, the state of our local community, and how fulfilled our employees feel. Volunteerism is at the root of it all.
We encourage our team to get involved in the community, whether it’s attending local conferences or educational events, taking paid time off for volunteer days or coordinating food drives. Here are just a few other ways our team gives back:
- Environmental Thought Leadership
- Local Beach Cleanups
- Pro Bono Marketing Consultant for the U.S. Green Chamber
- Ongoing Professional Development
Clean Air and Clean Transportation
As the naturalist and writer, Wendell Berry, once said, “The Earth is what we all have in common.”
Diversity is at our core, but our collective commitment to sustainability serves as the lifeblood of our organization. This passion permeates all aspects of our business from the clients we choose to work with, to the way we manage our daily operations, to our unwavering commitment to supporting the San Diego community.
Our commitment to the environment can be seen through:
- Becoming one of the first 10 certified Benefit Corporations in San Diego
- Providing subsidized transportation
- Ensuring we have a carbon neutral digital presence
Building Facility Performance
We are passionate and proactive about minimizing our impact on Earth, which is why “Reduce, Reuse & Recycle” converts directly to the office. Providing a green and sustainable work environment for the team not only promotes productivity, but also cultivates a culture of employees that value the health of their surroundings.
Our office demonstrates workplace sustainability through:
- Office energy efficiency
- Waste prevention efforts
- Water filtration system
