President of a privately-owned contract electronics manufacturing company, Phil Holman, speaks at the Sustainable Brands New Metrics’15 Conference
Hudson, MA — 11/10/2015 — Fourstar Connections, an electronics contract manufacturer for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), strives to enhance employee, community, and shareholder-relations through communication, partnerships, voluntary efforts, contributions, and other measures. As part of the sustainable brand community in Massachusetts, President and Owner of Fourstar Connections, Phil Holman, recently spoke at the Sustainable Brands New Metrics ’15 conference in Boston on how the company is embracing sustainability beyond just a limited focus on energy efficiency and environmental responsibility. The New Metrics ’15 conference showcased the macro, corporate, and investor landscapes to help businesses succeed. Insightful business leaders like Mr. Holman detailed research on macro trends, risks, and opportunities including discussions on sustainable development goals and applicability for the private sector. Mr. Holman shared Fourstar’s success story of implementing MVP + HIP 401(k) sustainability programs to re-align 401(k) funds to include more sustainable investing options for its 401(k) employee-participants.
Mr. Holman said, “All along, Fourstar Connections has shared its strong core values and high ethical manufacturing standards through countless volunteer efforts, community involvement, and positive environmental actions. We’ve been on the sustainability journey long before it became the norm, but have extended it in this past year to integrate a holistic approach to sustainability into our business model. Rating the sustainability of our company’s 401(k) plan is a first step towards boosting employee engagement, spreading sustainability understanding, and achieving our overall sustainability goals. We have outlined our sustainability goals around our people, process, and products. More importantly, in each of these areas, we’ve demonstrated our commitment to sustainability with action. Through this exciting transition, we hope to elevate the significance of sustainable manufacturing beyond our supply chain and into the local economy.”
