We spoke last week about how the company’s sustainability program has evolved – and whether all this eco-friendliness has rubbed off on John’s home life.
Your position was created in 2008. What was the feeling in the company at the time that led to its creation?
We had had a grassroots effort in place since about 2001. Our EcoCare volunteers were out in the field and were very passionate about going green and being environmentally sustainable. In fact, they put forth a business case for a director of environmental sustainability because they felt the firm was at the point where they needed to formalize this function.
