The Business Roundtable report details the efforts of nearly 150 companies, including Grant Thornton, to be responsible members of our local and world communities.
At Grant Thornton, we know that building a successful business means being a good steward at our worksites and in our communities. We work hard everyday to build a more sustainable world. A Business Roundtable report, “Create, Grow, Sustain: How Companies Are Doing Well by Doing Good,” details the efforts of nearly 150 companies, including Grant Thornton, to be responsible members of our local and world communities.
Here’s how Grant Thornton is “doing well by doing good”:
“The people of Grant Thornton are committed to sound environmental sustainability, personally and as a matter of firm policy. The firm’s ExperienceGreen initiative, launched in 2001, is our commitment to environmental and corporate social responsibility. The initiative amplifies our efforts through ongoing employee education, a host of charitable programs across the country, firm-wide recycling and conservation requirements, and the successful pursuit of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification in office locations.”

As public accountants and advisers, we at Grant Thornton LLP are entrusted by the capital markets, business community and broader social community with significant responsibility — including corporate responsibility for environmental stewardship.
As part of our current and long-range strategic plans, we have made a commitment to an environmental policy designed to help us assess and minimize the overall impact of our business operations on the environment. To demonstrate our commitment, we:
1) Communicate to all partners and employees the full support of senior leadership in meeting our corporate social responsibility for environmental stewardship.
2) Communicate to all partners and employees the importance of individual responsibility and innovation in helping us enhance, protect and preserve the environment.
3) Drive environmentally friendly behavior in our offices through the use of local-office committees.
