Convoy is proud to announce that we have been awarded a silver medal for corporate social responsibility and business sustainability from EcoVadis, the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, intelligence and collaborative performance improvement tools for global supply chains.
The silver rating places Convoy in the top 25% of all the companies that EcoVadis evaluates. The award demonstrates the awareness and respect both companies have for sustainability, business ethics, the environment, human rights and sustainable procurement.
Backed by a powerful technology platform and its actionable scorecards, EcoVadis provides benchmarks, insights and a guided improvement journey for environmental, social, and ethical practices.
The sustainable choice for our customers
As the most efficient digital network, serving shippers of all sizes, Convoy has a great responsibility for society and the environment. This is why Convoy has anchored sustainability in its core business strategy.
Convoy’s technology is already making progress in reducing carbon emissions by enhancing the ability to connect shipments more effectively. Convoy’s automated reload program reduces empty miles from the industry standard of 35% to 19% by bundling shipments into a single job for a driver. If the industry as a whole is able to achieve the same efficiency improvements that Convoy has seen on our bundled shipments, it would reduce CO2 emissions by 40 million metric tons every year.
United Nations Global Compact
Convoy is also a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). The UN Global Compact has a vision of a sustainable economy for the benefit of all people, communities and markets, today and in the future. It serves as a call to companies to align strategies and operations with 10 universal principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, the environment and anti-corruption as well as the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The SDG are at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which was adopted by all member states of the United Nations (UN) in 2015.
Our sustainability progress is merely a step along the way of our long term mission of “transporting the world with endless capacity and zero waste.” We are mapping out a future pathway to support zero waste trucking and are working to embed a culture of assuming responsibility towards the environment and people at all levels of the company.
