"When you've been in business for 228 years, focusing on doing what's in the best long-term interests of your clients and communities is deeply ingrained. That's what drives a sustainable business," Hassell said. "In nearly every business transaction or decision, there is an opportunity to benefit society beyond the immediate business objective. In fact, responsible business practices and increased transparency can open new doors, new markets and new relationships."
