Posted by Matt Hinkle Posted on Dec 14 2020

Hinkle Richter & Rhine, LLP is proud to be an environmentally certified sustainable company.

What does this mean?  It means that when we say “Guiding Clients Down the Right Path”, we walk the talk.

The Edenark Group ISO 14001 environmental sustainability certification program is the world’s premier sustainability standard, used by organizations around the world, that care about all current, and future, stakeholders.   

The program helps the organization define how it interacts internally, externally, and with the environment.  It incorporates energy/waste/water/materials management and reduction, employee health and performance enhancement, community involvement, procurement and suppliers, compliance and regulations, emergency/security, and stakeholder engagement.  Benefits include creating a culture of continual improvement, stakeholder engagement, lower costs, higher revenues and profits, improved employee performance, and, most importantly,...... doing something good for current and future generations.       

“When you have served a community for forty years, you have deep roots and a perspective that only comes from experience.  We want our organization to be the best it can be; and we care about our team, our clients, the community, and future generations,” said Darryl Hinkle, Managing Partner of Hinkle, Richter & Rhine.  “As accountants and business advisors, we are always looking for ways to improve an organization, be it ours or our clients’.  This program is designed to accomplish our financial goals of lower costs, higher revenues and profits, and improved team health and performance.  But, we look beyond that and see this program being consistent with how we choose to lead by example; and how we wish to be viewed, in our community, by our clients and by our peers,” added Hinkle.  
“When an organization pursues, and attains, the Edenark Group ISO 14001 sustainability certification, they are not just doing it to see their costs go down and revenues and profits go up.  They are setting a higher bar for their organization and sending a signal to all those around them,” says David Goodman, CEO of Edenark Group.  “They are not just changing out a few light bulbs and calling it a day.  They are agreeing to adhere to the world’s Gold standard for sustainability certification and are joining an elite fraternity of over 300,000 organizations, in over 150 countries, that have committed to continually improving in every way, for the benefit of all of us today, and all of us tomorrow.”
