Promoting broad scale public initiatives aimed at enhancing environmental sustainability is a key business interest for Marstel-Day.
Fredericksburg, VA (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
Marstel-Day is a multiple award winning, idea-driven, value-based environmental company providing innovative environmental planning services to the public and private sectors throughout the United States. As part of its tenth year anniversary celebration, Marstel-Day has issued its inaugural Climate Change Adaptation Plan and, separately, an inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility Report. With these documents Marstel-Day pledges its own intellectual resources - and seeks to provide positive examples to other public and private sector environmental organizations - towards long term efforts aimed at advancing public discourse surrounding the intricate web of corporate social responsibility, natural resource conservation and environmental management issues.
Both the Climate Change Adaptation Plan and the Corporate Social Responsibility Report (accessible at http://www.marstel-day.com) are geared toward all audiences and explain how organizations can operate sustainably while balancing their environmental, social and economic interests. The plan and report are forward-directed in their focus on both current and future environmental trends affecting the company and the communities in which it operates. For example, the company is participating in both the Federal Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction pilot sponsored jointly by the General Services Administration and EPA, as well as in the development of a new sustainability standard for service providers sponsored by the National Standards Foundation International (NSFI).
By becoming a first mover in developing these important planning tools, Marstel-Day aims to leverage its leadership and environmental analysis experience toward the wide scale implementation of new, sustainable operations standards that will beneficially impact all levels of organizations, from government units to private industry. These efforts are unusual for a small, privately owned business, although the potential for uptake is large: small companies constitute between 50-80 percent of our nation's private sector workforce, depending on how one defines "small"
According to company President and CEO Rebecca R. Rubin, "Promoting broad scale public initiatives aimed at enhancing environmental sustainability is a key business interest for Marstel-Day. Small companies are uniquely positioned to initiate and lead change within their communities. By acting in ways that create a positive impact on the environment, our employees, and our stakeholders, we can help build strong and vibrant communities that will be sustainable for future generations." Marstel-Day aims for open communication about its Climate Change Adaptation Plan and Corporate Social Responsibility Report to provide starting points for other organizations (companies, communities and not-for-profit groups) seeking to engage in similar efforts. The company invites comments and feedback that would improve the content and quality of its Climate Change Adaptation Plan or Corporate Social Responsibility Report.
