We are excited to present our 2012 Sustainability Report. It’s safe to say the project was larger than we ever anticipated and our team learned a few hard lessons along the way. At the same time, in researching and writing it, we were able to really clarify important or “material” issues for our business and how we are addressing and advancing on these issues.
This is our first time reporting using the widely adopted Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) reporting framework. The global non-profit organization provides a very thorough and continually evolving framework that can be adapted to businesses of all types. GRI also challenges businesses to report with full transparency on a wide range of topics and we applaud all businesses that are pursuing this method of reporting. We have found the process very beneficial for our business and are proud to finally share our work with Hemlock’s stakeholders: our staff, our clients, our suppliers and other members of the community.
To see our report, you can browse the pages online or better yet, request a hard copy. Should you have any questions about our report or are thinking of doing something like this for your organization, don’t hesitate to contact us – we’re happy to share our experiences.
