Living green means making daily choices which lessen the impact on our environment both at work and at home. At COUNTRY we want to do our part to limit our impact. With knowledge about the choices we make and available alternatives, we can make a difference. To help us in our ongoing green efforts, we’ve created a company-wide Green Team.
Green Team and objectives:
The Green Team brings together different areas of our organization, regions and business partners to discuss and review green efforts. The committee meets quarterly to identify and review new green opportunities.
The Green Team’s objectives are to:
• document and educate others about what we’re currently doing for the environment and
• identify new green opportunities.
Our green efforts:
COUNTRY is concerned about the environment. You may be familiar with our recycling efforts, but here are other green efforts we have taken to lessen our impact on the environment. This list will be updated as we continue to identify and implement new ways of doing things.

What’s your carbon footprint? A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment. You can calculate your own carbon footprint and compare yourself to the national average using a carbon footprint calculator, http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/ghgemissions/ind-calculator.html.
