New in 2022 

The Cox Enterprises program has been refreshed this year to focus on those that are actively reducing or reusing carbon/energy and water or minimizing waste sent to landfills, in line with Cox’s sustainability goals. The program will now honor a total of nine entities (six volunteers and three nonprofits), within three categories. Plus, for the first time ever, we will gift The Jim Kennedy Conservation Award, named after Cox Enterprises Chairman Emeritus and James M. Cox Foundation Chairman Jim Kennedy, to the winner in the nonprofit category. Learn more here.
