Are they minimizing their environmental footprint by controlling their emissions? When this information is readily available at the point of purchase everyone wins from the worker in a developing country that has improved health, safety and economic conditions, to people in our local community that can breathe fresh air and drink clean, safe water to visionary CEO's such as Ray Anderson that expend capital to proactively position their company as a sustainable enterprise. The Co-op America Business Seal of Approval is a mark of trust provided by Co-op America to help consumers identify and support socially responsible companies that have been screened and approved by Co-op America.
