Since being acquired by the Lindt & Sprüngli group, we at Russell Stover have strived to increase our commitment to sustainability and corporate responsibility. That commitment begins with ensuring the best possible work environment for our employees and encouraging them to partner with us in our sustainability efforts.
At Russell Stover, we are conscious of the impact our operations can have on the environment and we are actively seeking to reduce those impacts wherever possible. For that reason, we are continually assessing where our current environmental initiatives can be improved and where new ones can start.
For example, we are developing and incorporating new technologies at our facilities and in our infrastructure to become more energy efficient.
