Protecting our planet
At AIT, we cultivate sustainability in logistics by partnering with our customers to build supply chain solutions that reduce physical impacts on the planet.
Internally, dedicated teammates oversee emissions, waste, and energy management processes and programs, including a companywide commitment to recycling and paper reduction.
Shrinking our clients' carbon footprints—and our own
As a signatory of The Climate Pledge, our goal is to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2035 via emission reduction practices and “insetting” solutions to decrease or even eliminate emissions before they occur.
We use our global transportation management system to track and measure carbon dioxide emissions down to the shipment level and, when needed, we take part in offset solutions to reduce shipments’ carbon footprints.
We've also partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Administration as a SmartWay program member since 2007.
Monitoring climate disruption
To offer truly sustainable logistics solutions, we continuously track supply chain disruption caused by extreme weather events related to climate change, running risk analysis and preparing disaster recovery measures to ensure AIT’s offices and warehouses are ready to serve our customers—no matter what nature has in store.
Our people and culture
At AIT, we strive to create more inclusive workplaces and expand opportunities for all people in the communities where we live and work. To make this vision a reality, we employ the following sustainability initiatives:
- Ongoing leadership development opportunities
- Partnerships with schools in marginalized communities
- Diversity and inclusion training for teammates
- A commitment to equitable pay
- A multi-layered recognition program
- Multiple formal and informal teammate feedback opportunities
- Combatting human trafficking and child labor through training and supplier review
Since 2012, the AIT Cares program has helped raise the bar for sustainability in logistics, generating hundreds of thousands of dollars for worthy causes in our communities. As part of the program, AIT teammates receive five paid hours of time off each year to volunteer as they choose, resulting in thousands of teammate volunteer hours every year.
High quality business continuity
AIT's quality assurance and business continuity preparation efforts encompass business ethics, employee health and safety, human rights, and more. The company’s corporate sustainability initiatives, along with every other aspect of our business, are ruled by strict governance, from our critical-incident risk management analyses to our data privacy and cybersecurity strategy to our supplier code of conduct.
Employee Ethics Hotline
AIT Worldwide Logistics’ Code of Conduct contains general guidelines for conducting business with the highest standards of ethics. In situations when it’s preferable to place an anonymous report in confidence or reach the company’s Ethics Advisor, AIT teammates can submit a report via a third-party hotline, EthicsPoint.
