As stewards of the environment, we:
 
  • Recognize that the combination of consumer demand, legislative, and regulatory activity and technological advancement may create substantial opportunities to promote environmentally responsible activity when aligned with our business strategy.
  • Advocate strongly for better land use planning, improved building codes with more rigid enforcement, and policies that protect Americans who live in areas vulnerable to severe weather.
  • Continue to develop products and make investment decisions that promote environmentally responsible activity.
We are committed to mitigating climate change and reducing our carbon footprint incrementally each year.
