This company relies on local farmers within the community to provide raw materials that are going to be used in the manufacturing process. They encourage the farmers to grow these products with environmental sustainability in mind. They encourage the growth of organic crops without use of artificial fertilizers. They also take the initiative of powering the manufacturing plant with renewable sources of energy so that they can not contaminate the environment. They organize seminars and conferences for the local farmers where they sensitize and educate them of environmentally friendly practices. Through the initiative of collaborating with local farmers in their production process, the company is encouraging social sustainability. This is achieved through the projects, seminars, and conferences they organize. Social sustainability can be achieved through the organization giving back to the community through financing development projects. The manufacturing company has to ensure that it provides safe products for the community members(Gomez, 2007). Ethical sustainability can be achieved through the continued use of organic products from the farmers in manufacturing safe products for the members of the community.
