Convoy, the nation’s leading digital freight network, reaffirms its deep commitment to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) by publishing our annual Communication of Progress (CoP).
“We are excited to renew our work with the United Nations, our customers, and our partners in building a more sustainable future,” said Convoy’s CEO Dan Lewis. “We believe businesses play a key role in advancing Sustainable Development Goals that improve the quality of life around the globe so we may all live in health, dignity, prosperity, and equality.”
The UN Global Compact is a corporate initiative that encourages organizations to establish and define strategies, policies, and procedures aligned with the Ten Principles on human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption.
The seventeen Sustainable Development Goals are designed as a blueprint to achieve a more sustainable future for all. Adopted by the United Nations in 2015, the goals serve as a universal call to action to end poverty and protect the planet.
Convoy’s continued participation in the United Nations Global Compact reinforces its mission to transport the world’s goods with endless capacity and zero waste. As a leader in sustainability, Convoy is focused on empowering customers and small trucking companies to Ship Responsibly and optimize freight efficiencies that will help them meet their environmental goals.
Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is a globally recognized voluntary initiative that currently has over 13,000 signatories such as Convoy customers Unilever, Starbucks, Owens Corning, and Ford Motor Company based in 160 countries representing a variety of industries.
