In a move to strengthen its sustainability initiatives, Ewing promoted Warren Gorowitz to vice president of sustainability.

“The concept of helping our customers create and manage successful, sustainable businesses is one of the core values on which we operate,” said President Douglas York. “Expanding our focus on sustainable product solutions is the most logical and necessary step in helping contractors prepare for and succeed in the future of a rapidly evolving industry.”

Gorowitz has had a hand in Ewing’s sustainability efforts for about five years now, gathering key stakeholders to develop a baseline for the company’s existing sustainability initiatives and to identify future opportunities.

Preliminary efforts included the establishment of a Sustainable Solutions Council (SSC) and an advisory group to guide and direct the company’s efforts toward learning, modeling and influencing environmentally responsible practices; the development of a sustainability charter; the use of internal employee Green Teams to champion specific initiatives; and the Ewing PRIDE Project, a large-scale annual renovation and installation project benefitting organizations that embody Ewing’s core values of family, wellness, water efficiency and sustainability.

In his newly expanded role, Gorowitz will guide Ewing’s efforts to better serve employees, customers, and communities with a multifaceted approach, including education programs, advocacy for best practices, and a continuous evolution of Ewing’s sustainable solutions product mix.

Additional areas Gorowitz will focus in include integrating best practices into Ewing’s facilities and operations; championing employee wellness efforts; increasing customer and employee engagement; identifying and empowering early adopters; and partnering with like-minded organizations.

“We firmly believe sustainable products and practices will become an increasingly important part of our business in the future,” Gorowitz said. “Our customers trust us to help them succeed in business, and we’ll continue honoring that trust by having the most knowledgeable employees, best education programs and a complete sustainable solutions package for any landscape project.”
