Seattle, December 21 – The SEAL Awards have announced the winners of the 2021 SEAL Business Sustainability Awards and named Convoy as a recipient of the Sustainable Service Award, recognizing innovative services that set a new standard for sustainability. SEAL (Sustainability, Environmental Achievement & Leadership) is an environmental advocacy organization that celebrates the global companies and leaders that are making significant contributions to sustainability and developing initiatives that will have a positive, long-lasting impact on the environment. The SEAL Awards were founded on the core beliefs that environmental progress requires true leadership, leadership deserves recognition, and recognition brings accountability.
“Our sustainability awards program prioritizes meaningful impact metrics that ‘move the needle.’ Given the massive carbon footprint of the trucking industry, Convoy’s ability to reduce empty miles and carbon emissions by 45% is truly worth celebrating,” commented Matt Harney, Founder of SEAL Awards.
Winners were selected by a panel of ten sustainability and ESG experts. At Convoy, our work is built on the mission to transport the world with endless capacity and zero waste. We are committed to creating a more efficient and sustainable freight trucking for everyone and are grateful to SEAL Awards for their recognition.
“To be recognized as a winner of the 2021 SEAL Business Sustainability Awards is a tremendous honor for Convoy as we continue to focus on driving new efficiencies and reducing waste in the U.S. trucking industry,” said Convoy’s Head of Sustainability Jennifer Wong. “Today, 35% of the trucks you see on the road are driving empty, generating more than 87 million metric tons of waste; if the industry as a whole were to adopt Convoy’s technology, CO2 emissions would be reduced by 40 million metric tons – the equivalent of taking 8.6 million passenger vehicles off the road for a year. Convoy is pioneering the movement in efficient freight and this award inspires us to continue innovating new sustainable opportunities for truck drivers and shippers.”
Convoy is recognized among other industry-leading organizations and high-growth startups, including Disneyland, General Motors, Salesforce, Samsung, Skullcandy, Mapistry, and Polestar.
