Our approach to moving the yardstick on environmental impacts is unique. We recognize that some of the challenges we face don’t lend themselves to obvious solutions, and that solutions lie in challenging the best and the brightest minds across our member companies.
To do this, the members of each of our EPAs have created an aspirational statement aimed at communicating a degree of ambition. These are in effect end states that we want to achieve, and we want the people who work within our member companies and the broader innovation community to be very focused on figuring out new and better ways of achieving these outcomes. The four Aspirations are described below:
What We Aspire to
