Cox Conserves

Employee Engagement

Conservation is more than a corporate priority. It’s a mindset we encourage every Cox employee to adopt and apply to their lives. We’re constantly looking for ways to enable, inspire and reward positive change – whether in the office, during weekend service projects or when employees are home with their families. Our employees’ efforts are an important contributor to our progress toward our Cox Conserves sustainability goals.

Making Sustainability a Way of Life

Cox Conserves and You

There are almost limitless ways to become greener at work and at home, but most of us often need a little education and encouragement to get started. That’s why we launched Cox Conserves and You, our employee engagement platform to promote more sustainable decisions and behaviors. Its centerpiece is a fun, social website that challenges employees to take action. Participants can join campaigns and earn points and rewards for practicing recommended green behaviors, and they can comment and “like” actions by co-workers.

There are more than 700 environmental actions employees can undertake, from holding a virtual meeting instead of traveling to purchasing a vehicle with improved fuel economy. To date, Cox employees have completed more than 50,000 individual actions.

Beautifying Our Waterways

Beach and River Cleanups

Since 2010, Team Cox volunteers have picked up more than 26 tons of debris from beaches and waterways. In 2015, we held river cleanups in Atlanta, Jacksonville and Orlando, as well as beach cleanups in Irvine, California and Pensacola, Florida. In total, 400 employee volunteers collected more than 2 tons of trash. Hundreds of Cox volunteers participated in 2016 cleanups held in Atlanta, Dayton, Irvine, Jacksonville, Orlando and new markets Tulsa and Washington, D.C.
