Fishbeck demonstrated its commitment to environmental stewardship by achieving Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) Conservation Certification for its office headquarters in Grand Rapids, Michigan, joining only a few other corporate landholdings in West Michigan.

Fishbeck implemented habitat improvements at its Grand Rapids headquarters, located on 14 acres, including forested wetlands. “The Grand Rapids, Michigan office headquarters is recognized as meeting the strict requirements of WHC Conservation Certification,” said Margaret O’Gormon, President, WHC. “Companies achieving WHC Conservation Certification, like Fishbeck, are environmental leaders, voluntarily managing their lands to support sustainable ecosystems and the communities that surround them.”

WHC promotes and certifies habitat conservation and management on corporate lands through partnerships and education. The WHC Certification programs take corporate sustainability goals and objectives and translate them into tangible and measurable on-the-ground actions. Through a focus on building collaboration for conservation with corporate employees, other conservation organizations, government agencies and community members, WHC programs focus on healthy ecosystems and connected communities. WHC-assisted wildlife habitat and conservation education programs are found in 48 states and 24 countries.
