The standards and values that marked the Creative Group's earliest days remain our guiding principles today. Priding ourselves on truly being creative, we improved our products, proving our commitment to innovation and excellence. Our history of notable firsts and remarkable achievements were made possible only by way of this constant drive to be at the forefront of innovation.
Today too, we retain the desire to remain pioneers in our field. Remaining cognizant of 21st century challenges and responsibilities, one of Creative’s largest focuses is to use Smart Engineering to shrink the company's environmental footprint through a series of "green" initiatives that continue to grow. Many of these initiatives are completed and identified within the Sustainability Report, and others are in the process of being implemented over the next year. I am proud of our associates who have committed their resources to sustainability issues, taking a global initiative and turning it into something personal for themselves and the communities in which they reside.
Finally, I can assure all our stakeholders that Creative's efforts are a continuing process. As always, we are committed to making the best products we can. While we strive to provide cost-effective quality, we also strive to ensure Creative is a leader in sustainability action. Our aim is to be a company that positively affects our clients, our employees and the world around us.
