Yakima Chief-Hopunion decided to participate in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to affirm its commitment to long-term sustainability. "Sustainability is important to our multi-generational grower-owners and also our brewery customers,” said Yakima Chief-Hopunion CEO Steve Carpenter. "We are passionate about being a good corporate citizen in the communities in which we live and work and want to leave our planet in a better place than we found it.” The GRI is the preferred sustainability reporting framework, used by over 7,500 of the biggest national and international companies. However, navigating the requirements of the GRI can be challenging for first-time reporters. Yakima Chief-Hopunion reached out to Impact Washington, part of the MEP National Network™, for assistance in developing their first GRI report.
