CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY COMMITMENT
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy refers to our commitment as an organization beyond our core business objectives, as a responsible and ethical participant in the global community. We recognize that as a company, we have an impact on the world in which we live, and the people we interact with. Our actions impact our employees, our customers and suppliers, the communities in which we live and work, and the environment. CSR represents a Company’s commitment to operate in an economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable manner, while recognizing the interests of its stakeholders. As a result, CSR is closely linked with the practice of Sustainable Development, and extends beyond philanthropic activities and reaches out to the integration of social and business goals.
At My Grind Is Organic we have implemented and maintained a commitment to be a responsible corporate citizen and positive contributor to the global community since day one. We expect all of our employees to hold themselves to the highest ethical standards, and our corporate mission statement mandates that we will strive to positively impact the people we work with, the people we work for, and the communities we live in. We live these values continuously through our policies and our actions, working to empower personal and professional growth for all of our employees, embrace diversity and inclusion as a tenet of our identity, follow responsible business practices and standards in our all dealings with clients and suppliers, and give back our time, money, and resources to our communities through philanthropy, volunteering, and personal engagement.
ETHICAL SOURCING AND SUSTAINABILITY
We make decisions taking actions that are in the interests of protecting the natural world, with particular emphasis on preserving the capability of the environment to support human life.
We believe that our commitment to sustainability and ethics extends beyond our own work capabilities and should include the decisions we make as a company about the partners we align with, and the products and services we buy. Our purchasing policy takes sustainability and ethical sourcing into consideration throughout all stages of the buying cycle, and we encourage our teams to support local and small businesses to minimize carbon footprint and support local economies. We encourage our purchasing teams to consider ethical sourcing and sustainability across all purchases, including office products and supplies, food and beverage choices, and technology, hardware, and other capital equipment purchases. My Grind Is Organic expects our suppliers to treat workers and employees with respect and fairness, to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and procedures in place, and to act in accordance with applicable laws.
HUMAN SUSTAINABILITY "INTERNALLY"
As an employer, we implement policies and take action to drive diversity and inclusion by providing an inclusive environment where all are empowered to share their diverse perspectives and experiences so we can ultimately be better together. Our policies, practices, programs, activities, and decisions regarding employment, hiring, assignment, promotion, compensation, volunteerism, and internships are not based on a person’s race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, mental or physical disability, ancestry, military discharge status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, source of income, parental status, housing status, or other protected status. We strongly encourage women, people of color, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and members of the LGBTQ community to join the company and live our shared values.
My Grind Is Organic respects all our employees, and we strive to make their experience a positive one in all aspects of their relationship with the company. Our success is closely tied to their personal happiness, growth, development, and teamwork, and we work to assess, measure and support the personal and professional growth of our employees at all times, recognizing that the success of Yesler is led first by the success and happiness of our people.
HUMAN SUSTAINABILITY "EXTERNALLY"
My Grind Is Organic recognizes an expectation to have a positive impact on our community, and we promote this expectation through philanthropy, volunteering, and community service. We focus on developing specific goals, strategies and methods to preserve and improve the quality of human life. Our company initiates and supports community investments and educational programs.
Collaboration is one of the keys to unlocking sustainability. No single organization has the knowledge or resources to “go it alone”. Together with other companies that share our sustainability values, our company, our partners and with our customers, our community, we can take an active role in giving back to the world that has given so much to us.
