Your message has been received, we love starting new conversations. In fact, that's what we do best. We will contact you very shortly about how Centerline can help you get your message out.
At Centerline, we are united by a common goal: to deliver the highest quality marketing content, created by an extremely talented group of individuals. This commitment to excellence extends not only to our clients, but also to the responsibility to our employees, our community involvement and leadership, and the impact we have on the environment. From our management down, we demonstrate our responsibility to be good corporate citizens whether we're delivering innovative marketing solutions or participating in a local 5K for charity.
Since we ask the best of our employees, we return their efforts by fostering a culture and work environment dedicated to mutual learning, growth and respect. If we ask a 110%, then we give a 110%. Our inclusive culture provides constant training, growth and career development and a reward package based solely on merit and achievement.
Because our world is digitally driven - from video, web, social media to even the high-powered, energy saving green scanners in the office—our environmental footprint is constantly being reduced. Nonetheless, we recognize that we do have a direct impact on the world we live in and are actively engaged in finding creative solutions for conservation, waste generation/recycling and greenhouse gas emissions.
We have established goals, that over the next 5 years, we believe will greatly benefit our company and environment. Our progress towards these final goals will be updated in February at the beginning of each year.
Since we began our environmental initiative, Centerline has experienced a phenomenal amount of growth and change. 2012 brought about one of the largest expansions in Centerline’s history. During the past year we relocated to our new state of the art, 30,000+ square foot headquarters, and our employee size grew by another 25%.
Being in our new space has brought incredible benefits and interesting challenges. Many of our day-to-day processes were altered significantly, and still we had only a slight increase in our energy consumption and GHG emissions. We were also able to eliminate several key items that contributed to additional waste & recycling needs, which allowed us to have a larger space and bigger staff while keeping our environmental footprint relatively low. Below is a straightforward breakdown of our figures for 2012.
2013 has already brought about continued growth at Centerline Digital. Given that we are entering our first full year in our new headquarters, we will be retaining our original 2011 goals. This will allow us ample time to strive for the same environmental accomplishments that we achieved in our previous space.

As of February 2013, Centerline is compliant with all applicable national and local environmental laws and regulations, and has never been assessed a fine or penalty as a result of non-compliance, violation or any other legal requirement regarding our environmental aspects.
Centerliners work hard, but in our down time we love to support the local community that supports us. The Second Empire 5K Classic is a great example of an event we sponsor every year. Our appreciation for the great city of Raleigh that we call home is evident in the variety of events & volunteering projects that our staff, individually & collectively, participates in throughout the year.
Behind the scenes, our Corporate & Environmental Responsibility Group (C.E.R.G.), which is comprised of members of the Management Team and the Business Department, is the mastermind of our forward-thinking policies and procedures. This group of leaders ensures the welfare of our employees and that our staff are fully trained, and compliant with our environmental directives.
While we are a digital agency and create the vast majority of our own deliverables in-house, our C.E.R.G. also strongly encourage any applicable suppliers to follow the same social and environmental policies that we have adopted.
Each employee is given the necessary training to maintain the standards set forth in our company policies, procedures and goals. Every Centerliner must be in compliance with the conduct principles and environmental guidelines set forth in our employee handbook, which is reviewed in depth during their individual new hire orientation. Beyond these basic requirements, different positions at Centerline may require additional training, which will be in accordance with the employee's specific role.
Centerline's C.E.R.G. meets quarterly to conduct self-assessments and audits which certifies that our management system is functioning properly and that the goals, policies and requirements set forth are being correctly implemented. They also ensure that Centerline is fully compliant with any national and local environmental regulations that are applicable to our business.
