Our 2017 sustainability report is our eighth annual report dedicated to sharing the initiatives and activities that are driving progress towards achieving Clarke’s 2020 Sustainability Goals. The theme of this year’s book is “Building On,” which reflects the great pride we take in our sustainability journey, and celebrates the completed construction of the “Flourishing Garden,” our new operations and service center in Roselle, IL. The transformation at this location has been truly remarkable.

The 2017 report includes so many amazing stories about the men and woman of Clarke, and we are very excited to share it with you.

We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we did building it. Download a copy here.
