Blue Yonder Gives ICON Attendees a Chance to Give Back
Earth Day is celebrated each year in over 190 countries and counting. It’s a day to acknowledge a movement that works to cease unsustainable behavior and create global environmental changes. This year marks the 52nd Earth Day.
In honor of the day, Blue Yonder is excited to share how we are strengthening our environmental, social and governance (ESG) with your help!
With supply chain’s big reunion around the corner, we are offering you two ways to showcase how supply chains can save the world through the support of two organizations as part of your ICON 2022 registration:
The Canopy Project: Blue Yonder has pledged to plant one tree for each ICON registrant, up to 1,000 trees, with the Earth Day Network’s The Canopy Project. The Canopy Project plants trees across the globe and aims to spread awareness and knowledge about the many ways we can make a lasting impact on our world to make today a better tomorrow.
Blue Yonder has supported The Canopy Project for six years, donating one tree for each flight taken by our associates, and has planted close to 174,000 trees to date. An additional 35,000 trees are committed for 2022, raising the expected total to over 209,000.
World Central Kitchen: Blue Yonder will also donate $100 for each paid, in-person registration to Chef José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen in its mission to aid and feed Ukrainian refugees. When the conflict in Ukraine began, Blue Yonder put out a call to its associates to raise funds for this organization that is first to the frontlines, providing meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises. We raised more than $32,000 to date for this effort through associate donations and a company match.
Having heard how their operation in Ukraine was destroyed recently by a missile attack, Blue Yonder is looking to raise additional funds for this effort.
ICON is Blue Yonder’s annual customer conference where attendees will “Experience the Edge” and how to reimagine, rethink and reinvent their digital supply chains and fulfillment to drive a competitive advantage. The event will feature over 170 sessions, including 50-plus customer presenters, along with an Expo Hall that will feature Blue Yonder’s solutions and more than 60 ecosystem partners.
Register now to attend the event, either virtually or in-person in Orlando, May 23-25, 2022.
