CENTENNIAL, Colo., December 3, 2021 /CSRwire/ - Arrow Electronics supported more than 20 million people in 24 countries through its corporate social responsibility programs in 2020, according to the company’s newly released Corporate Social Responsibility Report: CSR 2020 in Review.
The interactive annual report details the impact of the company’s social, environmental and diversity and inclusive initiatives. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, Arrow directly helped 1.8 million people through its corporate social responsibility efforts, including more than 80,000 students.
During the pandemic, Arrow moved quickly to help develop technology solutions to meet crucial needs. Arrow served as a global supply chain partner of the VentilatorChallengeUK, a coalition of companies that worked together to produce 12,000 ventilators in four months. The company also helped launch the CIRQ+, a new smart robot designed to sanitize surfaces and spaces more effectively, helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
When COVID-19 hit East Africa, where Arrow helps equip students of all ages with technology skills through its mobile, solar-powered DigiTruck classrooms, the company supported efforts to help students learn at home and obtain essential goods, including food and hygiene products.
Other highlights of the 2020 report include:
