We Lead by Example
iCIMS recognizes that a commitment to the environment should start at a corporate level. Implementation of a corporate matching policy for employee donations to renewable energy research facilities has made great strides to reduce the company's carbon footprint. iCIMS has been able to generate more renewable energy through credits than it consumes in non-renewable energy per year. Such an admirable feat is accomplished by ensuring that iCIMS employees are energy conscious in and out of the office, whether it be through exercising tips and best practices, powering down computers and lights, or participating in the annual Earth Hour.
iCIMS starts early when it comes to demonstrating a commitment to the Earth to its employees. For every new hire that joins the team, the company plants 25 trees as part of the Nature Conservancy's Plant a Billion Trees Campaign.
Additionally, a partnership with 3Degrees has allowed iCIMS to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates. This commitment prevents more than 626,400 pounds of CO2 from entering the earth's atmosphere - equivalent to removing 61.5 cars from the road for three years.

We Encourage Involvement
iCIMS makes sure that every employee feels empowered to help the environment in a variety of ways. The iGIVE Back program, established by CEO Colin Day in 2006, has not only provided opportunities for employees to take part in company-wide beach and park clean-ups, but it has opened doors for partnerships with eco-friendly organizations like Earth Share of New Jersey and Clean Ocean Action.
Taking corporate responsibility to new heights, iCIMS even provides employee incentives for environmental volunteerism, matches employee financial donations to Earth Share, and promotes an ongoing initiative for new ideas to improve the company's green efforts. iCIMS employees exercise the belief that each helping hand and eco-conscious mind can make a difference.
