Customer service and service to our communities go hand in hand at Time Warner Cable. Corporate responsibility is woven into the fabric of who we are and what we do. Throughout our history we have demonstrated that commitment with sponsored events, educational programs and charitable donations all focused on strengthening the communities where we operate. Each year we donate several million dollars directly to nonprofit organizations. Greater still are the tens of millions of dollars more of in-kind contributions we provide through the production and distribution of public service announcements, free cable and high speed broadband connections to schools, and employee volunteer activities.
Time Warner Cable and the Environment
At Time Warner Cable, we're committed to decreasing our business impact on the environment. Our efforts are focused on fleet management, paperless operations such as our eCommerce site, power usage and recycling. In addition, we are using the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) sustainability rating system as a standard protocol for all facility construction projects. We are currently seeking LEED Certification at the Silver Level or better for five separate projects across the country.
Connect A Million Minds
Time Warner Cable's Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) is a five-year, $100 million philanthropic initiative to address America's declining proficiency in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), which puts our children at risk of not competing successfully in a global economy. CAMM leverages TWC assets across television and the Internet to drive awareness of this critical issue and provide simple and easy ways for parents and kids to get involved in their own communities. Lets keep connecting!
