Editor’s Corner: Sustainability

Hello and happy Thursday!

Today, I’m going to explore a word we’ve all been hearing a lot lately: sustainability.

Sustainabilityrefers to “meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” It is not simply caring for the earth and our natural resources; it’s also about caring for our social and economic resources so that we leave everything as healthy and intact as we can for future generations.

Jack Henry recently published our sustainability report. You can see the entire report on jhaToday. This report provides “…insight into our management practices, sustainability metrics, and commitment to corporate responsibility.” Dave Foss says, “Our approach enables our associates, clients, and communities to succeed—not just for today, but for tomorrow.” It’s all about corporate responsibility for the environment and all our shared resources.

According to Wikipedia, a sustainability report is “… a method to internalize and improve an organization’s commitment to sustainable development in a way that can be demonstrated to both internal and external stakeholders. Sustainability reports help companies build consumer confidence and improve corporate reputations through social responsibility programs and transparent risk management.”

As a member of the Go Green business innovation group (BIG), I’ve become pretty familiar with the concept of sustainability. As an avid recycler and “resource saver,” I love this word and this practice. As a parent (and now even a grandparent!), I’m very invested in leaving the earth and all our resources in better shape for future generations.

If you’re interested in learning more about this topic, you can join the Go Green BIG. Just go to Knowledge Drop on jhaToday and click the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion tile. In the HOW TO tile, you can click Join a Business Innovation Group. While your there, check out the other BIGs too:
