The consensus is clear: 97 percent of climate scientists agree that humans are causing global warming and climate change.
The good news is the message is getting through. A report from the Pew Research Center in September of 2021 noted that 80 percent of people “are willing to make changes to how they work and live to reduce the effects of global climate change.”
It’s time for all of us — individuals, businesses and institutions — to take a stand and pursue actions and initiatives that help protect our planet.
Of course, there is talk and there is action, and Miller Zell is proud of its record of green initiatives and efforts to make our operations more sustainable as we partner with our clients to develop and optimize their branded environments. We embrace the circular economy of reduce, reuse, refurbish, repair and recycle.
“Associates of Miller Zell are part of our local, national and global communities,” Miller Zell CEO Chip Miller said. “We recognize the importance in finding the business intersection with the well-being of the communities in which we live. We strive to continually improve our green initiatives and make our operations more sustainable.”
Our environmentally friendly policies, practices and initiatives include:
Further, as a true end-to-end partner, we pledge support to our clients’ sustainability metrics, goals and projects. This includes upstream and downstream initiatives like working with our suppliers and our own improvements.
Edelman’s 2022 “Trust Barometer” begins with a conclusion Miller Zell supports 100 percent, “Societal leadership is now a core function of business.” It also found that 58 percent of consumers “will buy or advocate for brands based on their beliefs and values” and that 52 percent believe businesses “are not doing enough to address climate change.”
Sustainability is a fundamental part of corporate social responsibility, and it is at the heart of Miller Zell’s core values and corporate mission.
It’s good for the planet. And it’s good business.
