Our Echo Values Guide Us in Everything We Do:

 

At Echo, we pride ourselves on being good corporate citizens. It is inherent in our values of “Do What’s Right” and “Better is the Only Option.” We serve the community, provide exceptional service to our partners, act as responsible stewards of the environment, and place emphasis on the safety and security of our employees. Through our commitment to these principles, we provide value to our clients, carriers, and partners, as well as our employees.

Through Echo’s various Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), company-supported giving programs, and the Corporate Citizenship Committee’s volunteer efforts, we serve our communities and provide our employees with opportunities to give back to the places where we live and work.

Echo supports various sustainability initiatives such as our partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay® Transport Program and maintaining a management system in compliance with ISO 14001 standards for environmental management. We continuously seek ways to measure the carbon footprint of Echo and our partners, and we put programs in place to reduce that footprint, including efforts within Echo’s offices to eliminate single use plastics, provide other recycling initiatives, and mitigate carbon emissions with contributions to carbon neutral funds.  

Echo’s Code of Ethics and Business Conduct, Safety, and Security Policy aims to create a safe environment for our employees, empowering them through training and development. We seek the best from our employees, which in turn reinforces the value Echo provides to our clients, carriers, and partners.

The following pages emphasize our commitment to our corporate responsibility efforts in additional detail.

 

Sincerely,
Doug Waggoner
Chairman of the Board and CEO
