Environmental stewardship is the responsibility of each and every employee.
As you go about the day-to-day business of your job, I challenge you to think about
the potential consequences of your actions on the environment and make decisions that
are consistent with the spirit and intent of the Environmental Stewardship Policy.
Together we will make a difference!
