As the national conversation has shifted to focus on racial injustice, businesses participating in the CEOs for Sustainability executive roundtable are responding. Here are a few examples of how some of these companies are working to advance social justice within their workplaces and communities:
- eLoop LLC is exploring ideas around inviting its local mayor and chief of police to its office to share perspectives and discuss potential solutions
- Giant Eagle is taking steps “to stand up against racism and social injustice,” from donating to social justice causes to pulling the Post-Gazette from its stores.
- Eaton puts its values into practice with 50% of its Board of Directors being women or minorities and 50% of its Global Leadership Team comprising US minorities.
Hosted by Sustainable Pittsburgh, CEOs for Sustainability is a forum for CEOs of the region’s leading companies to share best sustainable business practices and collaborate in growing the ranks of those around the region that reap the benefits of a triple bottom line — for people, planet, and profits. As more companies make their actions public, Sustainable Pittsburgh will update this list.
