Time Warner Cable and the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions have teamed up to help promote better environmental awareness among the cable operator’s employees.
The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) will work with Time Warner Cable to form “Green Teams” to help deliver on the company’s commitment to environmental stewardship. The Green Teams will work with Time Warner Cable employees to raise awareness of sustainability initiatives, improve operational efficiencies, and support green initiatives in communities where employees live and work.
“Time Warner Cable believes in empowering our employees to help us become a better corporate citizen and be more involved in our local communities,” said Dave Flessas, senior vice president, network operations center and operations support, and TWC Go Green Corporate sponsor. “Our partnership with C2ES will help advance our company’s environmental goals and promote environmental stewardship among our employees.”
The partnership is one element of Time Warner Cable’s “Go Green” initiative to lessen its impact on the environment while increasing business efficiencies and cost savings. The cable operator is on track to meet or exceed a 15 percent reduction in total carbon intensity by the end of this year, which is being achieved through companywide recycling programs, increased use of fuel-efficient vehicles and energy-efficient building designs, among other initiatives.
Through its “Make an Impact” program, C2ES works with a wide range of companies to educate employees on steps they can take to live more sustainably. Through online tools, hands-on activities, and community outreach, C2ES and its corporate partners have reached more than 300,000 people, who have committed to take energy-saving steps. CSES said the commitments would keep more than 71 million pounds of greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere, which is the equivalent of taking 6,700 cars off the road.
