The past few years were marked by the onset of the COVID pandemic, global supply chain disruptions and other challenges unprecedented in our own 75-year history, as well as in those of our coworkers, customers, partners and communities. As we were preparing this report, a common thread emerged from the myriad of stories Clarke coworkers shared with us. As our organization navigated the challenges and still managed to continue our trajectory of growth during this time, each of us was led by our Guiding Principles.
Our Guiding Principles were created back in 2018 when Clarke coworkers came together to create a set of principles to guide our actions and endeavors – shaping how we interact with each other, our partners, stakeholders and the communities that we serve. As these principles resonated in each and every story of our 2021 Sustainability Report, it made sense to title this report PRINCIPLED and to use the report as an opportunity to introduce our Guiding Principles for the first time to our external stakeholders.
Here are just a few highlights of our achievements over the past two years:
We know that all of our customers have choices for partners on mosquito control or aquatic management solutions, and we are grateful every time when we are the provider of choice. We compile and share these reports in hope that they reinforce the merits of a partnership with Clarke and highlight the importance of balancing our collective work to protect public health with a lasting commitment to environmental protection.
