Our Environment

Sustainability Policy

Please click here for a copy of our sustainability policy.

At CBIZ, we care about being environmentally friendly. In 2018, we renewed our commitment to our green initiatives and launched a national Green Team, comprised of volunteers from across CBIZ who are passionate about enhancing our green efforts. Our goal is to establish practical and actionable solutions to support sustainable environments within each of our local offices.

We value:

  • Reducing our environmental footprint
  • Efficiently using resources to reduce waste
  • Making green choices

We endeavor to do this because our team members care about working in a great place that values:

  • Restoring and protecting our environment
  • Opportunities for making green choices

2021 Green Team Metrics
Recycling, office equipment, office supplies and facilities are the four components of our green efforts. Each year, Green Team leaders help to implement and track efforts within these categories to make their office more environmentally friendly. The graphic below illustrates our 2021 actions.

Ecosia

In July 2021, we asked our team members to install Ecosia, a zero-cost search engine that donates at least 80% of its profits from ad revenue to plant trees where nature and people need them most. The Ecosia community has already planted over 127 million trees in biodiversity hotspots. In a few short months, CBIZ team members completed over 28,000 searches, resulting in 950 trees planted.

The Water Project

In Summer 2021, CBIZ partnered with The Water Project to fund a borehole well and hand pump at St. Paul’s Ebusia Secondary School in Kenya. There are more than 650 students and teachers, including a boarding section of 155 students. With water needs ranging from drinking, cleaning, handwashing, showering and laundry, the school faced a high daily demand for water and fell short of meeting their needs. The project consisted of construction of the new well and installation of six new ventilated improved pit (VIP) latrines, three for the girls and three for the boys.

Earth Day Contest

In honor of Earth Day, the CBIZ National Green Team held their first annual Earth Day Artwork Contest. The contest was open to team members’ children and grandchildren in grades kindergarten through eight. Children were asked to create an original drawing that symbolized a message about environmental awareness. While paper drawings were permitted, we encouraged original drawings created by hand on a computer or tablet to further support our environmental efforts. The only requirement was for the drawing to include “CBIZ.” The grand prize was publication of their drawing in our 2021 CBIZ Corporate Social Responsibility Report.

We congratulate our winner, Abby Hawn, daughter of Wendy Hawn of CBIZ Tampa Bay.
