Our sustainability story

Driving Positive Environmental Change. Inside and Out.

Home Our Sustainability Story

Making a positive environmental impact, both within our company and in the communities we serve is one of the most important things we do. We operate our businesses in ways that conserve natural resources, and we challenge our team members, customers, suppliers and portfolio companies to do the same. For well over a decade, our enterprise-wide sustainability program, Cox Conserves, has been instrumental in driving meaningful progress across a wide array of environmental initiatives. With nearly $140 million invested in more than 400 projects, we’re on track to meet our aggressive sustainability goals: zero waste to landfill by 2024 and becoming carbon and water neutral by 2034.
