Convoy Joins The Climate Pledge

Convoy, the nation's most efficient digital freight network, announced today that it has joined The Climate Pledge, a commitment co-founded by Amazon and Global Optimism. Signatories of the Climate Pledge commit to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2040, ten years ahead of the goal set out in the United Nations' Paris Agreement.

"Sustainability is at the heart of our business model and fundamental to Convoy," said Dan Lewis, Convoy Co-founder and CEO. "We empower the freight industry to ship responsibly and create efficiencies in trucking, helping our customers and communities meet their environmental goals. Convoy is proud to sign The Climate Pledge and support real carbon-reducing actions, and we will continue to work to achieve our mission to transport the world with endless capacity and zero waste."

Convoy is one of more than 100 organizations that have now signed the Climate Pledge, which commits signatories to three principal areas of action:

"Less than two years ago, Amazon co-founded The Climate Pledge and called on other companies to reach the Paris Agreement 10 years early?today, more than 100 companies with over $1.4 trillion in global annual revenues and more than 5 million employees have signed the pledge," said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO. "We are proud to stand with other signatories to use our scale to decarbonize the economy through real business change and innovation."

Convoy is already operating its business fully carbon neutral across scope 1, scope 2, and scope 3 emissions. The company's technology is eliminating carbon emissions from the trucking industry by enhancing the ability to connect shipments more effectively. For example, Convoy's Automated Reloads 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 bundled shipments, it would reduce CO2 emissions by 32 million metric tons, the equivalent of taking 6.9 million cars off of the road annually. To date, Convoy has eliminated more than 2.6 million pounds of carbon emissions for its customers, including Fortune 500 shippers like Anheuser-Busch, P&G, Niagara, and Unilever.
