Living Our Values
At Interstate, we recognize and embrace our responsibility as corporate citizens. We do business in a way that best serves our customers, employees, stakeholders, the environment and the communities in which we operate. We are committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards and taking responsibility for delivering customer satisfaction, demonstrating leadership, acting with integrity, valuing our people, and treating suppliers as important team members.
Investing in Our Communities
We have a great appreciation for the struggles people face around the world, but particularly in the local communities we serve. In 2020, Interstate Companies began donating a portion of its operating profit each year to the Second Step Foundation on behalf of our employees. The foundation works to make a difference by collaborating with community organizations that not only provide assistance but also empower people to address problems at their source.
We understand that supporting our communities includes being good environmental stewards. That’s why we’re committed to conducting business in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner wherever possible. The industries we serve, while not traditionally considered “green,” have begun to realize substantial financial and environmental benefits from sustainable business practices.
We work closely with our customers, suppliers, OEMs and other partners to build in the latest innovations to minimize negative environmental impacts while conserving energy and natural resources. Improving efficiency leads to better outcomes for the environment and the bottom line. Recently, we partnered with Odyne Systems, LLC, a leading manufacturer of hybrid and electrification systems.
