“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life!” ~ John Muir
Corporate sustainability is an approach to business that extends far beyond “green” initiatives. Corporate sustainability looks at the long-term health and viability of the organization, the development opportunities of their people, their relationship with the communities in which they are located and every other aspect of how they operate. It is about more than a person or a department with a few key goals, it is a core value throughout everyone and every decision.
We take great pride in working with organizations committed to corporate sustainability as this is one of our core values.
Our Environmental Sustainability Efforts
We believe connecting with the natural world is crucial towards greater self-discovery and growth. This can be as easy as standing in your backyard listening to the birds or as advanced as climbing a 14,000 foot mountain. Nature gives us a sense of being in the greater space around us. We encourage everyone to get out and connect with nature as often as possible.
Lightbox Leadership is committed to sustainable business practices. We are out-door and nature enthusiasts who believe in treading lightly for future generations. Our Co-Founder, Sara, is a LEED AP (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional) and helps bring sustainability into all of our decisions.
