It’s C.H. Robinson’s mission to improve the world’s supply chains. We’ve been doing it for decades now. But in a world ever more conscious of the imperative to reduce carbon emissions, helping customers move their freight more efficiently has taken on new urgency.
Our customers are tackling their carbon footprint from all angles, from their facilities to the source of their electricity. They’re turning to us for help with an even more challenging sustainability goal: reducing greenhouse gases across their supply chains. With nearly 200,000 customers and contract carriers worldwide, we stand to make a significant impact on sustainability across the industry.
New technology we’ve launched is proving to be an accelerator of change. In its pilot phase, Emissions IQ helped 125 companies reduce their carbon emissions by a total of 350,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalents. That’s as much carbon as 39 million gallons of gasoline would emit. Now that all companies can get an instant calculation of all their transportation emissions in this self-service tool, a huge barrier is removed and the possibilities for reduction are revealed.
