Sustainability by The Shackman Group

Our Commitment

Our View On Social Responsibility AND GREEN INITIATIVE

We think it is important to go beyond the basics of ethical business practices and embrace our responsibility to people and to the environment. Specifically, Shackman Associates:

 Adheres to high standards of business practice – The core philosophies that the company is founded on are enacted on a daily basis, with our team members acting with integrity, abiding by the highest ethical standards.

Practices environmentally sustainable methods of operation – Shackman Associates works to conserve energy and reduce waste, with a view to operating “green” programs that promote sustainability and support environmental conservation. We assert these high standards and “green initiatives” for ourselves, our clients and our venues.  We have worked with clients to map the “carbon footprint” that our programs create and explored ways to offset the negative effects this may have on the environment.

 Is committed to community awareness – We work with our client and partners to create programs that give back to the community.  From teambuilding “cleanup” programs in New York’s public parks to donating musical instruments to New York public schools, to name a few, Shackman Associates emphasizes the importance of community activism to our clients.
