Social Responsibility


Social Responsibility Statement:

“Leveraging Grande’s longstanding Mission and Culture objectives, to nurture and support a holistically sustainable business model that positively impacts the world around us, thus continuing to achieve our most profound culture commitment…the fulfillment of a purpose greater than ourselves.”


We began formally reporting on our social responsibility efforts in 2013 and while many things have changed since that time, our dedication to fulfilling the commitments of our Mission and Culture has not. The constant transformation of sustainability practices, global competition for talent, and navigation of a world pandemic serve as a constant reminder that our work around sustainability must never cease.

Associate Excellence

Our Associates are the heart of our business. The workplace lifecycle of each Associate is unique and it is our intention to create an environment where Associates have the resources and support in place to find success—from their first day on the job through retirement.

Community Involvement

“The fulfillment of a purpose greater than ourselves”…While this statement takes on many meanings, the common denominator is that our Associates are deeply committed to the communities in which we live, work, and play.


Environmental Awareness

We see environmental sustainability as a critical means to reduce the overall environmental impact of our procurement, manufacturing, and distribution processes, both now and in the future.
