Our culture

We have a unique culture, and it's a winning one. Sustainability thrives on consistency, and how we accomplish our goals is as important as what we achieve.

We integrate specific behavior expectations into our business practices. We call them our three keys to success – and we recognize (and celebrate!) culture-building efforts through a variety of initiatives.

In our daily work, good leadership helps maximize the benefits of diverse teams. We therefore help managers (for example, through training to reduce unconscious bias) become more inclusive leaders as they make decisions about roles, assignments, working arrangements, promotions and performance evaluations.
