In Honour of Earth Day – April 22, 2022
This year’s theme for Earth Day calls on everyone to play a role — all sectors of society. And “this time with the extraordinary responsibilities to get it right.” Accelerating solutions to combat our greatest threat, climate change, and to activate everyone – governments, citizens and businesses – to do their part. Everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable. (https://www.earthday.org)
Count. Us. In.
On this Earth Day, we’re dropping a tab called Responsibility into the Courtney.ca website. In this newly created section, we will share how — as a corporate citizen and as a group of people brought together through our business – we show up in the areas where we have impact and influence.
Ours is a customs brokerage and freight forwarding business. And, through that vantage point, our social purpose is to:
Make it easier for values-based business to succeed in the global marketplace.
The universal conversation about environmental protection is forcing us to become systems thinkers. Let’s face it, the planet is going to survive regardless of what we do to it. What we’re really talking about is the survival of the natural world which is dependent on the planet’s current offerings. The bee has become the poster child for our needed attention to the dependencies within our eco-systems.
If we are to learn anything from First Nations elders, it’s that we are responsible for the relationships we have and hold with each other and all parts of the natural world — including the land, air and water we depend on for survival.
We’re all connected and we’re all dependent on each other.
Under Responsibility, Courtney will share updates on our efforts and actions to make the connections as we:
- lessen our environmental footprint through changes to our operations and our service offerings
- contribute to humanitarian practises around the world
- continually enhance our workplace for the people who make Courtney’s business their business.
We invite you to follow our journey and, most importantly, to join in with your own.
