Time Warner Cable Inc. has announced that its “Go Green” initiative has resulted in a 38 percent reduction in the company’s carbon intensity over the past two years, far exceeding its goal of a 15 percent reduction set in 2012.

The company reduced its carbon intensity by focusing on increased energy efficiency and improved waste and vehicle management, promoting sustainability within its supply chain, and building employee “Green Teams” around the country.

Rob Marcus, Chairman and CEO of Time Warner Cable, said, “Our Go Green efforts are reflective of Time Warner Cable’s commitment to policies and programs that use fewer natural resources and promote environmental sustainability. I’m incredibly proud of our employees for their work in helping us greatly exceed our goal, and applaud our Green Teams for the leadership roles they play in ensuring that Time Warner Cable does its part to protect the environment for future generations.”

Energy efficiency was one of the largest efforts targeting a reduction in Time Warner Cable’s carbon intensity. The company finalized its real estate and facilities guidelines based on the U.S. Green ENERGY STAR standards, which has led to implementation of environment-friendly practices at company facilities throughout the country. Three facilities and data centers, including two in Charlotte, N.C. and one in Herndon, Va., achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. Other locations in Charlotte and Colorado are pursuing LEED certifications. Time Warner Cable also achieved a 14.7 percent increase from 2012 fuel efficiency within its fleet of 20,000 vehicles by purchasing more fuel efficient vehicles.

Time Warner Cable promotes sustainability within its supply chain and, in 2014, more than 50 percent of all suppliers and vendors were screened using environmental criteria. More than 20 percent of total office supply spend is on green products and new systems are in place to increase green spending. The company also achieved the goal of having at least 90 percent of all new set-top boxes meet U.S. EPA Energy Star 3.0 efficiency standards.

In 2014, the company introduced employee “Green Teams” to help more employees get involved in the company’s “Go Green” efforts. Employees in 15 teams around the country raise environmental awareness, help create operational efficiencies, and support local environmental organizations.
