Understanding and reducing our footprint

Since our people are our company’s greatest resource, we recognize the importance of providing productive and healthy spaces allowing for creative and functional work. At the same time, while we travel and serve our clients from approximately 30 office spaces throughout the U.S., we aim to minimize our environmental impact from our business operations.

Woodard & Curran's long-standing history of sustainability efforts at our offices include grassroots recycling initiatives, materials reductions, deployment of sophisticated technology to allow our employees to work remotely with colleagues and clients across the country, and reducing our carbon footprint from travel.  Our investments in technology and flexible work arrangements have also allowed us to maintain business continuity through unforeseen circumstances, enabling us to drive performance, advance technical initiatives, and support our staff.

The data below captures an updated, 2020, snapshot of our key metrics that we’ve been tracking since 2016 to monitor impacts of our business operations.
