Named for our Chairman Jim Kennedy, the Chairman’s Challenge is an opportunity for employees to think differently about the environment and align with our Cox Conserves goals to be zero waste to landfill by 2024 and carbon and water neutral by 2034. This year, employees will participate in a monthlong series of at-home waste-related events and activities, earning points for their actions. The six employees with the most points at the end of the month will work with the James M. Cox Foundation to contribute $52,500 to environmental nonprofits of their choice.
This contribution will add to the more than $39 million the Foundation has contributed to environmental and conservation efforts. And for every employee that participates, Cox will plant a tree. This commitment will add up to 25,000 new trees to the more than 380,000 trees Cox has planted since 2013.
