TI Holding Company establishes national, Atlanta-area Sustainability Partners

ATLANTA, Ga. (July 15, 2021) – To enhance its Go for Neutral program and engage its employees in environmental stewardship, TI Holding Company, which includes brokerage business unit (Nolan Transportation Group), managed transportation and parcel business units (Transportation Insight), announces sustainability partnerships with One Tree Planted and Chattahoochee Riverkeeper.

“Since developing our sustainability program earlier this year a priority has been to establish partners that can guide our efforts and help us execute our mission,” said Ken Beyer, chief executive officer, TI Holding Company. “We’re excited to support these two great organizations and their missions. We look forward to collaborating and engaging our team members on volunteer events, educational opportunities and best practices as we Go for Neutral.”

To support One Tree Planted, TI Holding Company will make a financial contribution toward planting trees in the Hiawatha National Forest in Michigan. Additionally, the company’s Grand Rapids brokerage office team members will participate in a tree planting activity coordinated by One Tree Planted this fall.  

Atlanta is home to a large number of TI Holding Company employees, including the brokerage unit corporate office and largest sales office, the parcel business unit, and several members of the company’s executive leadership team. These teams will join forces to participate in a river cleanup and invasive species plant removal activity with Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (CRK) later this year. TI Holding Company is also proud to be a sponsor of CRK’s Return to the River on Sept.16.

On April 22, Earth Day 2021, TI Holding Company announced the launch of its sustainability program called Go for Neutral. This initiative is designed to help its business units, shippers and carriers collectively lower their carbon footprint and positively impact the environment. TI Holding Company aspires to be a leader in sustainability and environmental stewardship in the transportation logistics space. The company is planning four major initiatives to enhance its business optimization, social responsibility and accountability. These four initiatives encompass investments and adoption of best practices in operations, technology, offices space and community affairs.

A significant aspect of the sustainability partnership is to plant trees in the markets where the company operates. In addition to One Tree Planted and the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, the company is engaging environmental groups to create local partnerships and volunteer tree planting activities in each of the markets where TI Holding Company offices are located. Activities are being planned in Chicago, Detroit, Denver, Dallas, Austin, Hattiesburg, Miss., Charleston, S.C., Nashville and Charlotte-Hickory, N.C.
