Jun. 12 /CSRwire/ - CSRwire) Tempe, AZ - AGM announced the global kickoff of a company-wide Sustainability Audit, "Advancing Green Measures" - which will measure energy efficiency, water conservation, environmental quality, material use and recovery, and site sustainability of the company. AGM Group is a multi-national organization that offers environmentally sensitive products to the earthmoving and aviation industries. Some of AGM's products include water solutions (water tanks and attachments) that mitigate dust and help control air quality and ground support equipment (aircraft loaders and passenger stairs) that use a range of power and charging systems, such as solar power.

CEO James Gilchrist: "AGM is deeply committed to leading our industry in environmentally and socially responsible business practices. We will conduct an audit of all facets of our business - internal, manufacturing, supply chain, and partnering - to ensure that our vision and values are translated into our daily working lives, implementing best practices throughout our global operations."

AGM publicly committed to the "triple bottom line" - a balancing of social, economic and environmental consideration - in February when they hired Rachael Skolnik as their first Sustainability Officer for all global operations. Rachael Skolnik has over ten years of experience in the fields of social and environmental services. Skolnik has transformed the company's vision, mission and values based on environmentally and socially responsible business practices. She integrates her background in psychology and sustainable service with her passion for social justice and environmentalism, "Sustainability makes sense for everyone. I am privileged to bring aboard initiatives that create benefit for the company, the stakeholders, and the environment."

Skolnik is partnering with Arizona State University's School of Sustainability (SOS), which was established in 2007 as the first school in the U.S. to offer graduate and professional degrees in Sustainability. The school aims to educate a new generation of researchers, practitioners, and leaders to develop practical solutions to some of the most pressing environmental, economic, and social challenges of our time. The graduate student engaged in the project, Brigitte Bavousett Hill, is part of a new breed of professionals trained in sustainability practices. She was selected for the SOS inaugural class through an extremely competitive applicant process and will be one of the first students awarded a Master's degree from the school. Bavousett Hill's program of study, along with her six years of international business experience, provides a perfect foundation to meet AGM's triple bottom line of global corporate sustainability objectives.
