SUSTAINING THE ECONOMIC VIABILITY OF OUR BUSINESS
FOR THE LONG TERM
At Ryder, we strive to integrate corporate responsibility and sustainability into every aspect of our business, and understand that sustainability goes hand-in-hand with maintaining economic viability. In a rapidly evolving world, sustainability continues to have a positive correlation with improved cost of capital, financial performance, and operational efficiencies.
Our commitment to sustainability supports our mission to provide safe, reliable, and efficient innovative fleet management and supply chain solutions that enable our customers to deliver on their promises. Not only do we innovate to ensure our products and services are relevant to customers and profitable to our shareholders, we also take the time to understand customer wants and needs, and the demands of our operating markets in order to offer products and services that positively impact our stakeholders and the environment. Embedded in our sustainability strategy, we are selective in hiring and maintaining a skilled and dedicated workforce to uphold safety and drive innovation.
We also aim to operate efficiently, carefully managing costs to drive profitability while considering the environmental impacts associated with our investments. By ensuring long-term viability as a profitable and thriving business, we are better positioned to make an impact where our business and operations intersect with our communities and stakeholders. This report highlights our key areas for impact and our goals to continuously improve over time.
Over the past few years, we have matured our efforts and increased our focus on sustainability across our value chain, and in 2020, we developed a framework to drive impact on the sustainability issues we deem material to our long-term success.
Our principles and goals reflect our continued commitment to sustainability and illustrate the strategic priorities of our business. These principles and goals are supported and overseen by the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee of the Board of Directors (Governance Committee).
