Sustainable development is core to our business strategy. We balance a daily operational focus of sourcing wood, identifying productivity improvements and fulfilling customer orders, with a longterm view for growth in core markets and expansion through investment in new markets, innovative equipment and groundbreaking technology.

By 2050, there will be 9.8 billion people walking the earth. Ninety-seven percent of that population growth will be in emerging economies, and most of these people will choose to call cities their home.
For sustainability to be embedded into our organizational strategy, it needs to be championed by our business leaders and integrated into our core operations. To ensure executive and operational buy-in, NRG’s sustainability team manages our day-to-day efforts while also developing and guiding long-term strategy.
Sustainability engagement helped HPE drive nearly $160 million of new revenue in 2017.
We have long known that our Living Progress plan is the right thing for a responsible company to do. But we now have increasing evidence that our sustainability credentials contribute to our business objectives and deliver value to our shareholders.
This trend is reflected in the burgeoning growth of the sustainability investment sector.
Emerging technologies get a lot of attention for the promise of transforming the future. But there’s not enough energy available to power the IT infrastructure to run these IT applications at their imagined scale. HPE is creating solutions to power the future sustainably.
After you are evacuated from your home, where do you go? Relatives may be fleeing too. Hotels fill up fast. In September 2017, that question was on many minds as people in Florida tried to escape the path of Hurricane Irma. But for our affected employees, their co-workers had an answer.
Our teams in nearby Atlanta collaborated to create an internal digital listing of homes for rent for the Comcast NBCUniversal family. Those with living space to share could list their homes as options for their teammates in need.
Rising floodwaters. Hurricane-force winds. Rapidly spreading wildfires. These catastrophes all share one thing: they test the spirit. Throughout our entire Comcast NBCUniversal family, stories of selfless service and compassion have emerged from the recovery efforts. Our employees have an inclination toward action, so these are only a few of the hundreds of incredible examples of how we are Comcast strong.

To truly make a difference during a disaster, we know providing information — from the latest weather updates and best evacuation routes to tips for people staying in place — is just step one. Step two is action. Our 2017 news coverage emphasized the magnitude of the challenges faced by people in affected areas. It also helped mobilize citizen action as we connected viewers with relief organizations offering financial and logistical aid.
Opening the nation’s eyes to the dire circumstances, infrastructure damage, and human struggle was vital to rallying support.
Even before Hurricane Maria touched down in Puerto Rico in September 2017, many feared the damage would be enormous. When the storm reached landfall, those fears were confirmed, and it was obvious that people’s lives on the island would be changed forever.
