We are excited to announce that STI is now Certified Evergreen®. “Evergreen™ companies are private, profitable, enduring, and market-leading businesses that make a dent in the universe. They put their purpose and people first and avoid decisions that impose a growth-at-all-costs or exit-oriented mindset, which benefits both the communities they serve and our society.”
