Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance 

In pursuit of our mission to connect and positively impact the world through solving logistics challenges, ArcBest is focused on advancing environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) initiatives to help build a safer, more sustainable and more inclusive company — for our world, employees, business partners and communities. It’s not only the right thing to do; it’s our responsibility.  

Building on a history of good corporate citizenship, we began our official ESG journey in 2019, voluntarily releasing our first-ever ESG report. Since then, we have published a report each year, detailing our progress and long-term commitments. We invite you to read the 2021 ArcBest ESG Report for the latest updates.

Environment  

We understand that our business has a significant impact on the environment, and we remain committed to improving sustainability across our organization and operations. To do this, we continuously identify areas for improvement and research and invest in equipment, technologies and processes that can reduce our carbon footprint and that of our customers. While we’ve been mindful of the environment throughout our history, we have recently made significant strides that are helping create a more sustainable supply chain and a healthier planet.

Social 

Our people are at the heart of our success. Every day, they find creative ways to serve our customers and communities, leading the way for ArcBest to be a differentiator in our industry and in the places where we live and work. We believe it’s up to us to empower our people to continue making a difference, and we’re listening to employee feedback that addresses crucial social initiatives.   

We’re taking action to create an inclusive workplace that embraces all cultures, perspectives and experiences. Read about ArcBest’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) journey.  

We’re also offering more opportunities that enable our people to volunteer with organizations that are helping build stronger, healthier communities. See how ArcBest employees are getting involved.   

Governance  

ArcBest’s approach to governance is grounded in our core value Integrity — we do the right thing. Our leadership team and Board of Directors lay the foundation for ethical business practices, and we hold the entire organization to the utmost standards for exuding good corporate citizenship. This ensures we maintain the trust and confidence of our employees, customers, contract carriers, vendors, shareholders and other critical business partners.
