Expanding our global reach while reducing our carbon footprint

As we serve more and more clients around the world and work with member firms of the Crowe Global network, we’re committed to environmentally conscientious practices and decision-making in every element of our business. We’re also incorporating environmental accountability and thoughtfulness throughout our culture, business operations, and practices.

Our sustainable business practices 

We’ve pledged to improve recycling efforts by at least 10% in 2020 

This includes improving the consistency of our paper, glass, and aluminum recycling processes in offices.

What steps are we taking? For starters, we default our printers to the double-sided feature to reduce paper output, plus provide shred bins at each of our locations for paper recycling.

Serving clients remotely is part of our day-to-day

We started using video chat applications years ago to help reduce travel time and resources. Now, we also use these tools to:

  • Reduced emissions from travel
  • Extend the life of infrastructure
  • Capture the information we need remotely
  • Be competitive in the marketplace

Our green team keeps us on track

In 2018, we formed a "green team" to brainstorm and implement social responsibility practices across the firm.

With nearly 20 members across all functions and levels at the firm, team members volunteer on top of their regular responsibilities to create an environmentally responsible culture.

Focused on saving natural resources and landfill space through recycling

Our paper recycling process saves both fuel and energy resources. Plus, we significantly decreased our overall paper use due to remote work during the pandemic.
