Seven Years CarbonFree® Matters More to MWW
Tuesday, 12 November 2013
Seven years into its long-term commitment to environmental leadership, MWW is achieving great things towards its goal to do its part to make the world a better place. MWW, one of the nation’s top mid-sized public relations firms and one of the ten largest independent agencies, is recognized for its work in consumer lifestyle marketing, digital marketing and social media, corporate communications, and visual branding.
MWW is also dedicated to reducing its global warming impact, improving quality of life and US energy security. Since 2007, MWW has led by example, committing to being CarbonFree® in partnership with Carbonfund.org. Over the past seven years, MWW has reduced the carbon impact from its business operations, totaling over 19 million pounds of CO2 mitigation, which is equivalent to the electricity use of 1,291 homes for one year through support of Carbonfund.org’s renewable energy and forestry projects. That’s also equivalent to the emissions from over 20,058 barrels of oil consumed or taking 1,797 cars off the road for one year.
“Our work in corporate social responsibility and corporate citizenship is some of the most important we do,” emphasizes Michael Kempner, MWW President and CEO. “MWW remains firmly committed to doing our part to protect and preserve the environment, and we are pleased to continue our seven-year partnership with Carbonfund.org, a leader in carbon reduction and offset solutions. We challenge our peers in the industry, as well as our clients and partners, to join with us in this important work, or to adopt their own programs to help bring about a clean energy economy.”
Employees at MWW give back through Good Matters, a company-wide Corporate Social Responsibility program, which enables employees to support local charities and other causes that are close to their hearts. Each year, team members can take advantage of eight hours of paid time off to volunteer for an organization of their choice. These collective efforts have defined MWW’s commitment to corporate citizenship, for the environment, community, employees, and their clients. Carbonfund.org is proud to partner with MWW in helping to make the world a better, cleaner place to live.
