Responsible Business Practices

A Generation of Good; 2013 Coprporate Consciousness Report

Climate Change Climate change is an issue of deep concern to us and as hard as we’ve tried to reduce our carbon footprint, it’s clear change will not come from our actions alone. That’s why we joined the visionary companies of Business for Innovative Climate & Energy Policy (BICEP) in early 2009. BICEP brings key allies in the business community together with members of Congress to pass meaningful energy and climate change legislation. In April 2013, we were founding signers of BICEP’s Climate Declaration along with companies such as Patagonia, Starbucks, Levi Strauss, Ben & Jerry’s, Nike, and Stonyfield Farms. The Declaration urges Congress to address climate change by promoting clean energy, boosting efficiency and limiting carbon emissions. One year later, 750 businesses had signed the Declaration and the call to action is spreading. RE SPONSIBLE BUSINESS PRACT ICE S B Corp As a mission-driven business, Seventh Generation believes it is our responsibility to set a course for a more chapter 5 mindful way of doing business. We are proud to be a founding member of B Corp and a certified B Corporation, meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. We are recertified every two years and in 2012 achieved a score of 116 out of 200, 38 percent higher than the average B Corp business. The process helped us to identify areas where we can improve by investing in the communities where we manufacture our products. We encourage others to join us in using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. Ethics We strive to adhere to the highest ethical standards in all aspects of our operations and to comply with all applicable laws. We expect every individual affiliated with Seventh Generation to meet the same standard. Living Authentically, our employee handbook, which employees must agree to follow, describes our expectations regarding the business and ethical conduct of all members of the Seventh Generation community. Our new Supplier Code of Conduct provides our ethical standards for suppliers.
