“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
The EnviroScience Corporate Responsibility Committee (CRC) is an employee-led initiative for giving back to our community with our time, labor, expertise, and of course financially by helping to fund projects and activities of particular interest to our members and employees. We are proud members of the United Nations Global Compact and continue to grow our business in accordance with the Ten Principles.

The CRC is a voluntary group of staff giving their time, talent and treasure to participate in and support our various causes and events. The EnviroScience Board of Director recognizes the importance of community involvement and provides 98% of the seed money we use. Because of this support, nearly 40% of our staff participates in CRC events.
EnviroScience’s (ES) Corporate Responsibility Committee was recently awarded the 2014 Medical Mutual SHARE Award for Community Service. ES was one of thirteen companies in Northeast Ohio being recognized for its outstanding initiatives to give back to its community.
