Advocacy - Climate Change

2012 Corporate Responsibility Report

Transforming Commerce We aspire to transform commerce by championing honesty, responsibility, and radical transparency. Our aspirations are founded in the belief that the business sector can play a vital role in creating a future of thriving communities and a healthy environment. For this to happen, commerce itself must change. Seventh Generation has always sought to have an influence far greater than our size in fostering this transformation. We demonstrate our own corporate responsibility through our commitment to transparency (annual Corporate Consciousness reports such as this one and ingredient disclosure on our packages) and through our certification as a B Corporation. We also value our relationships with many organizations that share our goals of business responsibility, healthy products and a healthy environment — groups such as the Green Chemistry & Commerce Council (GC3), BizNGO and Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility. Seventh Generation also has a proud tradition of forceful advocacy for change on such topics as toxics legislation, ingredient disclosure and sustainable principles within our own industry. Advocacy At Seventh Generation, we don’t just make products; we seek to engage others in conversations and collaborations about changing our world in positive ways. We seek to link arms with non-profit organizations, retailers, our supply chain partners and consumers so that together, we can exert influence beyond our size. Climate Change Climate change is an issue of deep concern to us. As we work to reduce our own carbon footprint, it is clear change will not come from our actions alone. We know we need to work closely with others to protect our planet for future generations. That’s why we joined the visionary companies of Business for Innovative Climate & Energy Policy (BICEP) in early 2009. Sponsored by Ceres, BICEP brings key allies in the business community together with relevant members of Congress. The goal is passage of meaningful climate change legislation that promotes clean energy, boosts efficiency and limits carbon emissions. Most recently, in April 2013, Seventh Generation joined Patagonia, Starbucks, Levi Strauss, Ben & Jerry’s, NIKE, Stonyfield Farms and other 42  Seventh Generation, Inc. | FUTURE TENSE: Corporate Consciousness Report for 2012 Transforming Commerce
