This is a part of who Boyd is and what we stand for,” said Boyd CEO Mitch Aiello. “We believe that sustainability and corporate social responsibility is not only an ethical requirement to conduct business, it is a source of value creation for our customers and shareholders. We are very proud to be recognized by one of the world’s leading telecommunications companies for our achievements in sustainable programs and corporate social responsibility.”
