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.

Energy and fuel savings is part of our day-to-day 

Our “Where to Work” policy not only supports our people’s work/life needs by letting them work from home or other remote locations, but it also provides several environmental benefits: 

  • Reduced emissions from the need to travel or commute 
  • Less wear and tear on highways  
  • Lower electricity use in offices 
  • Reduced environmental impact via virtual and e-learning trainings 

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.

In 2019, we planted thousands of trees – at least one in honor of every Crowe employee

At Crowe, our values state: We care, we share, we invest, and we grow. We did just that when we collaborated with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant one tree for every person in 2019.

The occasion? Named to the 2019 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list, we wanted to celebrate, as well as thank, our employees for their hard work.
