ADP’S Green Initiatives - We Work to Make an Impact
“Going green” may be a phrase that is overused today in the workplace. However, at ADP, we let our actions speak louder than our words. In respect to “going green,” ADP’s proactive “green” decisions regarding our processes and products work to protect the environment and conserve resources.
Currently, we have consolidated our 20 Data Centers into two centers, which has allowed us to have savings of $3 million in electricity per year. This move also enabled us to have an annual 24,000 ton reduction of harmful carbon dioxide emissions.
Furthermore, did you know that we cut one in every six checks in the United States? In order to save on paper, we have launched paperless programs for checks and W2’s for all of our associates and clients.
We are proud to have achieved high marks on Newsweek's Green Rankings list for 2012. Out of a list of more than 850 companies ranked, ADP came in at #157 nationwide.
At ADP, we love to recycle. We host clothing drives as well as recycle eyeglasses, batteries, furniture, books, computers, magazines, cell phones and more. We also distribute non-paper/Styrofoam cups and encourage our associates to use ADP Mugs made from recycled materials. And, our landscape waste is composted and used as mulch.
Moreover, we are extremely supportive of our associates incorporating “going green” in their every day lives. We support virtual meetings and actively encourage our associates to telecommute when possible which saves fuel resources. At ADP, we offer formal ridesharing programs as well as rail and bus passes. We even offer “green” educational and awareness programs on such issues as recycling and Earth Day. ADP is an active member of Green Grid, a global consortium dedicated to developing and promoting energy efficiency data centers.
Overall, at ADP, we are truly dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint and being a company where our associates can be proud to work because they know we are making an impact in our local and global community!
Community Outreach - Making a Difference
At ADP, we're grateful for who we are and how great we have it, which is why we are an active part of the communities in which we thrive. We have a standing tradition of partnering with philanthropic organizations to make a difference in the communities in which our associates work and live. Local ADP locations also sponsor a host of other philanthropic causes and some of them are highlighted below.
Workplace Giving Program/Matching Gift Program
ADP offers associates the ability to donate to national non-profit organizations through its Workplace Giving Program and Matching Gift Program. ADP matches all associate contributions dollar for dollar there by doubling the impact our associates have on their communities. Over $3 million dollars are generated each year through these two programs.
Workplace Partnership for Life
ADP is proud to join forces with Workplace Partnership for Life, part of the new National Gift of Life Donation Initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Workplace Partnership for Life program is dedicated to bringing awareness to organ, blood, tissue and marrow donation, helping to save thousands of lives.
ADP STEM & MaST programs
Through the ADP Foundation and partnerships with Augusta State, Augusta Tech, Paine College and the University of Texas at El Paso – ADP has committed to grow math and science educators in the Augusta and El Paso communities by sponsoring scholarships to encourage students to enter into education programs in math and science.
ADP has become a community partner at Fort Bliss, Texas, and Fort Gordon, Ga., through an adopt-a-unit program. ADP serves as pillar of support for the deployed troops and its family members in the community.
American Heart Association
As part of ADP efforts to partner with the American Heart Association, associates participate in Go Red for Women day, an annual effort to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease. ADP also coordinates heart walks all over the country that collectively raise $400,000 each year.
World Class Community Service Program
Created by ADP, this program provides a structure which allows associates to volunteer their time to give back to worthy causes and organizations within their local communities.
Each year, ADP is proud to sponsor the Special Olympics Games, giving an opportunity for children and adults with developmental disabilities to showcase their athletic abilities.
Each year, our Mid West Diversity Council partners with Chicago Cares. ADP associates join with thousands of others in a day of service to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream.
