Our take on the triple bottom line is people, planet and performance

We believe that excelling in all three areas boosts a company’s reputation and productivity. Doing so is not just the right thing to do but also the smart thing to do. Businesses that become sustainability leaders see better bottom-line results as well. As an organization, we continue to challenge ourselves to improve our sustainability performance for the benefit of our colleagues and, ultimately, the communities in which we operate.

““In order to be successful in today’s business environment, organizations must be action-oriented in developing and improving the sustainability of their operations and services,” said Sphera’s CEO and President Paul Marushka. “As such, we are not only committed to supporting our customers in achieving their emissions reduction targets but also to minimizing our own carbon footprint. We are proud of the SBTi approval of our near-term, science-based emissions reduction target, and it demonstrates Sphera’s ongoing dedication to creating a safer, more sustainable and productive world.”

We take environmental issues to heart

As a sustainability leader and a part of the Blackstone organization, which, too, has long championed sustainability, we understand how important it is to not just “talk the talk” but to “walk the walk” when it comes to enterprise sustainability management. That means we are continually looking to improve our own organization.

In October 2021, Sphera committed to joining the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). The UNGC is a voluntary initiative where some 12,000 organizations from 160-plus nations have pledged to incorporate universally accepted sustainability principles into their companies.
