The company, our Foundation and our employees contribute annually to a variety of organizations around the world. Headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA, C.H. Robinson (CHRW) is publicly traded on the NASDAQ.
We have something in common with our customers, carriers, suppliers, and communities. All of us want to create more efficient and cost-effective supply chains. Because we know that greater efficiency is not just smart for business, it can impact the world for generations to come. This core value is reflected in our sustainability initiatives.
As part of our overall sustainability goals, C. H. Robinson has implemented an employee business travel emissions offset program with Carbonfund. Each year, employee business travel is tracked and the associated carbon emissions are calculated. Then, C. H. Robinson purchases and retires the corresponding quantity of carbon offsets through Carbonfund, in support of the Amazonian Rainforest Preservation Projects in Acre, Brazil, which are preserving almost 750,000 acres of critical rainforests, protecting habitat for flora and fauna, and providing employment, educational and health assistance to the local people living on the project lands.
“Global warming and global climate change are continuing to be on the rise, and we at C.H. Robinson acknowledge that our industry is contributing to the problem, so we truly believe we should also contribute to the solutions. We believe that every bit helps. We are proud to be partnering with Carbonfund, contributing to a bigger cause.” – Jeroen Eijsink, President, C. H. Robinson, Europe
