Our Approach

We believe that businesses should think about more than themselves. Fundamentally, we have a responsibility to our people, our communities, and our planet.

Build a Circular Supply Chain

We think about our supply chain as circular, not linear. This allows us to create a more holistic view of how our business choices impact communities and the environment over time. It also gives us the capacity to make better-informed decisions.

Focus on Providing Value

Within our circular supply chain, we want to provide positive value to the people, communities, and businesses that we interact with on a regular basis.

Our North Star Goals

Everyone who has a hand in serving
our guests should be thriving and protected. 

Thriving, Protected Team Members

Team member well-being focuses on what our employees need on a day-to-day basis to thrive and produce outstanding work. We not only care for team members that we directly employ, but also those that we indirectly impact as they operate in our value chain.

We seek to create experiences throughout our brands that nourish the body, mind, and soul.

Better Health Makes Better Businesses

Our health starts with what we put in our bodies, but we also take a holistic view of wellness, as it includes our physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. Through our partnerships and programs, we are working to lead the communities where we live, work, and do business on a path toward better health.

We want to employ a cyclical approach to how our products and services are developed and used.

The World is Bigger Than Our Business

At each step of our value chain, we are dedicated to improving how our products and services are developed and used. The ultimate goal is to develop a net-positive ecosystem for the climate and environment.

We extend a hand-up to every community that we call home.

Paying Forward and Giving Back

Our communities are not only our markets…they’re our home. We partner with local organizations and governments to invest in impact-driven and sustainable solutions that will stand the test of time.  This allows each community to flourish and be less dependent on hand-outs and safety nets.

We’re Not Alone

We have connected our north star goals to the larger global effort.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals have acted as the worlds guidepost for protecting our planet and creating peace and prosperity.  We felt it was important to align our goals with this effort. We identified nine goals that were most relevant to our companies mission and business expertise:
  1. Zero Hunger
  2. Good Health & Well-Being
  3. Decent Work & Economic Growth
  4. Sustainable Cities & Communities
  5. Responsible Consumption & Production
  6. Climate Action
  7. No Poverty
  8. Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
  9. Reduced Inequalities
