Introducing The 2021 State of Audio.

The Environment

Care for the Planet

From our commitment to sustainable business practices to our annual employee volunteer day, taking care of the planet for today and for future generations is woven into all aspects of who we are and how we operate.​

1Thing Initiative

Our 1Thing initiative inspires and educates listeners and communities with one simple message: By changing 1 Thing in our lives, we can each make a difference for our planet. Through our national platform we provide audiences with exclusive content and share what our favorite artists are doing to save the planet.​

Employee Engagement

Our Sustainability Champions inspire their teams to be green in our offices, through our airwaves, and even at home. In addition to year-round environmental partnerships, we host our signature 1Day1Thing event, mobilizing all of our teams across every market to roll up their sleeves and support local environmental groups with beautification and sustainability projects. In 2021, 500 employee volunteers served 3,002 hours, collected more than 1,600 pounds of garbage, planted 76 trees, removed 635 pounds of invasive plants, and recycled 125 pounds of material.​

Corporate Gifting

Each Earth Day, we partner with Conservation International on behalf of our employees to donate to a project supporting our planet – anything from protecting mangroves and tropical rainforests to saving elephant habitats.​

Business Operations

To reduce our carbon footprint, our local studios and offices practice sustainable sourcing, recycling, waste reduction, and energy efficiency.​

Sustainable Events

We keep our events green by ensuring our vendors use compostable materials and avoid plastic, and encouraging our consumers to go paperless with tickets.​
