“It's important to expand our program a little bit more. What I mean by that is sustainability is no longer a nice to have. It's a must have. The SEC's ruling (climate disclosure requirements) is coming...In order to be successful, we have to start bringing in other kinds of internal stakeholders into our strategy.”
