The Corporate Stewardship Council (CSC) is a unique group of 19 New Jersey companies united behind a common goal of environmental sustainability and responsibility. Member companies include co-chairs PSEG and Mannington Mills, as well as Verizon, Johnson & Johnson, DuPont, Atlantic City Electric, JCP&L, United Water, New Jersey American Water, New Jersey Natural Gas, Eagle Ridge Golf Club, Merck, Eastern Propane, South Jersey Gas, Trump National Golf Club-Bedminster, Covanta Energy, New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance, Pfizer and Pine Island Cranberry Company Inc. Ex-officio CSC members are the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS).
Many companies own or manage land in New Jersey that is located in ecologically sensitive or valuable areas. The Council recognizes the opportunity for these lands to play a critical role in the restoration of valuable habitats and recovery of declining populations of threatened plants and animals and offers a means for member companies to participate directly in habitat conservation.
Each member company works closely with staff at New Jersey Audubon to evaluate habitat restoration or enhancement potential on its property or affiliated sites. Once identified, the partners work together to develop and implement a conservation plan intended to improve upon existing conditions and enhance habitat for rare wildlife and plants. New Jersey Audubon will work with each member company to identify potential sources of outside funding for restoration projects. Member companies may also choose to take advantage of a number of other benefits available to their employees including volunteer work days with New Jersey Audubon staff, onsite environmental programming, and access to New Jersey Audubon staff for advice on shared environmental concerns.
