Environmental Responsibility

The SMG-managed Cox Business Center is committed to environmental responsibility and strives daily to lessen its footprint.

Going Green

The Cox Business Center participates in various recycling programs – including venue-wide efforts, upcycling guest hotel toiletries and providing the supplies to the Salvation Army Emergency Shelter, and helping guests have zero waste events by providing post-event items to community groups and organizations.

The venue’s exclusive in-house catering (SAVOR….) integrates farm-to-table initiatives into all food and beverage operations.

We purchase local produce whenever possible to ensure the freshest of ingredients, allowing us to support the local economy by supporting regional farmers and reducing “food miles” and decreasing transportation emissions.

Plastic coffee stirrers? Gone. We also made switched to biodegradable coffee cups and sleeves.

In Earth Day initiatives we’ve implemented Oklahoma-focused landscaping, year-long donations to the Tulsa Farmers’ Market Association charitable programs, retrofitting more environmental lighting options and AquaHealth sustainable water programs, as well as ‘A Day of Dimming’ to conserve energy.
