Today we are announcing our partnership with Sustainable Brands®, a growing global community of passionate individuals who are committed to leveraging environmental and social innovation to deliver exceptional business performance.
We are joining more than 70 other companies worldwide committed to leveraging their unique role in business and society to pave the path towards a sustainable economy.
Supporting our mission of zero waste
Aligned with our mission of transporting the world’s goods with endless capacity and zero waste, we’ve already started to make progress in helping shippers reach their environmental and social impact goals through our products and programs.
We are excited to work alongside sustainability leaders to transform the decades-old business of moving freight with new and innovative approaches, rooted in data and science. We believe that collaborating with peers will produce best-in-class solutions to solve the fundamental inefficiencies in freight.
The Sustainable Brands® Community
Sustainable Brands’ goal is to inspire, engage, and equip business leaders and practitioners who see social and environmental challenges as an essential driver of brand innovation, value creation, and positive impact. The companies that comprise the Sustainable Brands Corporate Member Network collectively represent over $2.1 trillion in annual revenue, serving over 5 billion customers worldwide, and have a combined workforce of over 4.5 million employees across the globe.
This community, comprised of global professionals in sustainability, marketing, business and brand strategy, product design and innovation, and finance, are driving business innovation towards a sustainable future.
“I’m excited to welcome Convoy as the newest member of our community. Our members are courageous optimists. They believe that brands can profit by being a force for good in the world, and Convoy fits in beautifully. In this peer-to-peer network, members regularly challenge, inspire and support each on the path to becoming sustainable brands. Convoy’s leadership and unique insights will add great value to the learning and collaboration in the community and help scale our collective impact.”
Darren Beck, vice president of Membership for Sustainable Brands.
Convoy is hosting the fall SB Corporate Member meeting at its Seattle offices on September 16th and 17th. The meeting will focus on the theme of new metrics—how brands are newly measuring the business value they create through social and environmental innovation.
