The Sustainability Network seeks to raise awareness of sustainability challenges, promote best practices, and unify ecologically oriented company activities. By tight collaboration between our facility managers and employee-volunteer sustainability champions, the Network communicates uniform environmental messaging, solicits employee feedback, and promotes conservation.
Our supply chain contracts require vendors to describe their environmental policies and efforts, which we evaluate to verify if their sustainability objectives and operations correspond with those of Northern Trust.
