Here at Triose we put emphasis on treating people well and doing the right thing even if it means a little extra work. One place that principle shows up is in our view of sustainability: we believe that when we take steps like partnering with other green companies, or reducing paper waste in our office, we’re not just helping Triose — we’re making our communities stronger and providing a positive impact in the lives of people we may never even meet.
We believe that way of thinking has the power to make good things happen. And we may be onto something. Triose has just been named a recipient of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2021 Green Supply Chain Award.
This award didn’t happen overnight. We’ve spent years adopting environmentally sound practices and revising our operations for sustainability. In 2018, Triose implemented a plan to put Green Cell Foam, a biodegradable packing solution made from cornstarch, in the hands of healthcare providers across the country to protect their medical shipments. And well before that, we started optimizing courier routes and fleet maintenance with our CourieriQ and FleetiQ solutions in ways that dramatically reduce carbon footprint.
Environmental sustainability is one of the five pillars of our Give Five program, along with Charity, Volunteerism, Veteran Support, and Ethical Conduct. These pillars are all the ways we take a proactive approach to ensuring that, at the end of the day, we’re proud of the work we do and the way we build relationships with our clients, partners, and our own team members.
In the words of our President, Ira Tauber, “Triose was created with a focus on making a difference in healthcare. There has always been a focus on being a positive impact in our communities as well. Winning SDCE’s Green Supply Chain Award signifies to us that others appreciate our vision of bolstering community welfare not just by putting medical tools in the hands of healers, but also by doing it in a way that is ethical, sustainable, and just.”
