Austin, Texas (PressExposure) May 30, 2009 -- The past twelve months have been very exciting for us. As a proud continuing member of the United Nations Global Compact, we have spent considerable effort to adhere to its principles so we can to improve our market place and the societies in which we serve.
As a company with head offices in the United States, we abide by the applicable human rights, labor and environmental laws. However, our sales extend into 50 countries where we appreciate the melting pot of our diverse network of offices and local installation partners. This enhances our ability to respect and take responsibility for the needs of all the markets we serve. This also allows us to recognize the need to go beyond the laws in many countries. The Global Compact is of tremendous value in these efforts as we strive to be role models in our synthetic turf industry and communities around the world.
We appreciate the positive responses from our customers, partners and government agencies concerning our commitment to the Global Compact and its principles. This feedback and the positive impact we make continue to reinforce that the goals of good corporate stewardship and profits are not separate paths. In fact, good business principles and integrity is our foundation for long-term stability and profitability.
Finally, we invite and encourage all other participants in the synthetic turf industry to review the United Nations Global Compact's principles. In turn, we hope they will also execute such practices to aid in our common well being. From our side, we will continue to implement even newer strategies that will continue to guide us as strong proponents of the Global Compact.
