CASE STUDY: COPPERPOINT MUTUAL
CopperPoint Mutual participates in Source AZ.
Today, they source 82% of their goods and services from other Arizona companies, which indirectly support an additional 3,600 Arizona jobs.
While they’re spending $100M, they know their dollars are having a $500M impact on Arizona’s economy, which means a stronger, more diverse and resilient Arizona.
The bonus: They saved 1% on their total budget and
got 12 glowing media spotlights for their efforts.
