At Cox Enterprises, we are committed to being good stewards of the environment and have long engaged in eco-friendly practices. Through Cox Conserves, we're lessening our impact on the environment by managing our waste stream and conserving carbon and water. We're incorporating sustainability into every aspect of our business by harnessing today's technology while anticipating tomorrow's innovations.
Launched in 2007 by Chairman Jim Kennedy, Cox Conserves is Cox Enterprises' national sustainability program. Cox Conserves focuses on reducing waste and energy consumption, as well as conserving water. The program engages each of the company's major subsidiaries (Cox Communications, Cox Automotive and Cox Media Group) and encourages Cox Enterprises' 50,000 employees and their families to engage in eco-friendly practices. The company's sustainability goals are to send zero waste to landfill by 2024 and become carbon and water neutral by 2044. The company also presents the Cox Conserves Sustainability Survey, a nationwide survey that examines sustainability opportunities and challenges for small and medium-sized businesses.
Cox Conserves Vision: We create positive environmental change in our communities by operating in ways that reduce our impact and inspire our employees, customers, suppliers and partners.
