Cox Sets Zero Waste and Carbon Goals

Cox EnterprisesCox Enterprises logo seeks to send zero waste to landfills in seven to 10 years and become carbon and water neutral in the next 25 to 30 years.

These are the announced goals for Cox Conserves, the company’s national sustainability program. The program originally focused on carbon reduction and now includes waste and water goals.

The program launched in 2007, and it has grown into more than a $100 million investment in sustainability and conservation through operations, projects and grants to environmental nonprofits.

Since the program’s launch, the company has completed 26 alternative energy installations and hundreds of energy conservation projects across the nation that annually prevent more than 41,000 tons of carbon emissions from entering the environment.

The company uses alternative energy such as fuel cells, photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal. Lighting, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) and building efficiency projects have been completed across the nation. Cox recently received LEED Gold certification for a new facility on its headquarters campus.

The company operates two water conservation centers that contribute to Cox’s annual savings of 32 million gallons of water.

Cox’s fleet of more than 13,000 vehicles also contributes to its carbon goal.
