TORONTO (ONTARIO), November 2, 2022 – SCI Group, a leading Canadian 3PL specializing in e-commerce fulfillment and transportation management, released their 2021 sustainability report today, which summarizes the company’s sustainability activities, and achievements from calendar year 2021. This inaugural report reflects progress made in SCI’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) journey, helping Canada meet its goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

This is the next evolution on SCI’s ESG journey that started two years ago, focused on reducing its environmental impact (our planet), investing in local communities (our communities), and advancing a safe, inclusive, and respectful workplace (our people).

The 2021 report highlights SCI’s progress on their ESG responsibilities as they put strategies in place, make investments, and build positive momentum towards their goals. This includes establishing 2021 baseline greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) inventory, which it had verified for the first time by a third party. In addition, the report highlights a multi-year equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging strategy, and outlines support for their community partner, the Canadian Red Cross.

“We are pleased to share our first sustainability report that shows significant progress towards our goals around climate action, zero waste, community support and championing our people” said Chris Galindo, President and CEO, SCI. “The report is a testament to the steps we are taking to make our people, our planet and our communities even better. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished and how far we’ve come in such a short time.”
