April 22 is Earth Day. It is a time set aside to remind ourselves that we all only have one planet. We celebrate with gratitude for nature and with promises to do better to protect our planet. Sometimes people look at environmental preservation and business as competitors, but it does not have to be this way. Companies are increasingly concerned with sustainability and corporate social responsibility. They are moving away from exploitative ways of doing business because long-term commitments to their community and the environment are good for their brand. Many companies are publicly making commitments to the environment and their community, including aligning with the global Sustainable Development Goals. OD practitioners deal with change all the time. We can have a positive impact on the companies we work with by highlighting the synergies between business and environmental preservation. If big energy companies can do it, everybody can!
