Business Leaders Reaffirm Commitment to Sustainability

WashingtonBusiness Roundtable today released Create, Grow, Sustain: Delivering Shared Success — testimonials from America’s leading CEOs detailing how their companies promote sustainable practices in their U.S. and global operations.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the report highlights how America’s largest companies make sustainable business investment a priority in supporting economic growth and job creation. This focus on sustainability helps improve the quality of life for their employees, customers and communities where they operate.

“Across the board, Business Roundtable companies remain deeply committed to ensuring a sustainable future,” said Nicholas K. Akins, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Electric Power and Chair of the Business Roundtable Energy and Environment Committee. “For a decade now, this report has detailed the critical importance of sustainability at our companies and in our communities.”

Watch here to see Akins’s video introduction of the new report. 

Released each year in the week leading up to Earth Day, the annual Business Roundtable sustainability report documents how U.S. companies are doing well by doing good — harnessing the power of people working together to further advance sustainability efforts and share the resulting success broadly. The 155 CEOs who participated this year share their stories about how their companies are tackling today’s sustainability challenges with innovative ideas and technologies. Visit to explore these remarkable achievements.
