SEATTLE, WA — McKinstry today released its 2022 Social Impact Report, highlighting its work to create greater equity and inclusion, serve communities, and drive a zero-carbon future.
“2022 was another year of rapid progress and important advancements relative to our social and environmental aspirations. Collectively, we saw a return to many aspects of pre-pandemic normalcy — a shift that positively contributed to our community engagement initiatives but also presented renewed challenges to our zero-carbon commitment,” said Ashley Ruiz, McKinstry’s director of corporate social impact. “I couldn’t be prouder of the collective commitment, dedicated effort, and deep passion that exists for this work among our people. 2023 is poised to be an even greater year of progress in service of our vision of together, building a thriving planet.”
Achievements from 2022 included launching ScaleUp, McKinstry’s new diverse business accelerator program; procuring the company’s first electric trucks as a step toward a future fully electrified commercial fleet; achieving the highest number of employee participants ever in McKinstry-supported community service projects across the country and increasing total volunteer hours by 72% over 2021; and engaging 55% of staff in 2,132 hours of conversation about critical diversity, equity, and inclusion topics.
“I am deeply proud of the legacy we have built over more than 60 years at McKinstry. Our culture and our values prioritize the safety and wellbeing of our people, create deep and lasting partnerships with our clients, and uplift our communities,” said Dean Allen, CEO. “We are committed to delivering a bright future for generations to come for both people and planet.”
