The full 2022 Impact Report can be found at coxenterprises.com/ImpactReport.

Since its founding in 1898, Cox has been committed to doing the right thing. And while the world has changed and the company continues to expand into new industries, that founding principle to build a better future for generations to come remains steadfast. The 2022 Impact Report, Our Future Is Our Legacy, affirms Cox’s core values and lays out goals, actions and progress to address today’s most pressing problems. The report reflects not only Cox’s commitment to transparency and accountability but also its conviction to solve crucial challenges related to connectivity, transportation mobility and sustainable innovation.

“The metrics we measure tell a story, inspiring us to stay motivated and press forward,” said Alex Taylor, Cox Enterprises chairman and CEO. “As the saying goes, you can’t improve what you don’t measure, and watching our strategies gain traction is exciting. We’re leading the charge, and we hope other companies follow.”

A Better Tomorrow

Cox proactively releases an impact report every two years. Since its last report in 2020, Cox continues to create a better tomorrow through a host of activities, initiatives, investments and partnerships that support employees, customers, communities and the planet. Highlights include:
