FREMONT, Calif. & CLEARWATER, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TD SYNNEX (NYSE: SNX) today announced a partnership with the University of South Florida (USF) Patel College of Global Sustainability. This partnership is part of TD SYNNEX’s expanding environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts, and it allows for the USF student community to engage in a sustainability project in collaboration with TD SYNNEX as part of a broader USF educational program on sustainability activities.
“TD SYNNEX is a proud supporter of our local community, and we are excited about our partnership with USF, which is a reflection of our commitment to corporate sustainability and enhancing the community around us,” commented Adam Rutstein, Director of Global Corporate Responsibility, TD SYNNEX. “We have been working closely with the USF team to create a mutually beneficial program that is dedicated to increasing sustainability KPI data processes, and that is engaging and captivating for both students and the TD SYNNEX team.”
The program builds on TD SYNNEX’s vision for a vibrant, interconnected world, and it is designed to bring students together to go through an exercise on TD SYNNEX’s sustainability KPI data processes. The students will also conduct an onsite assessment at TD SYNNEX’s Clearwater, Fla. headquarters on how the company can work toward making the site net zero for emissions. At the end of the current semester, students will make recommendations on how to simplify and make the company’s processes more efficient.
“We are thrilled to partner with TD SYNNEX and to support our students who want to participate in this unique and timely opportunity,” said Govindan Parayil, Dean of the Patel College of Global Sustainability at the University of South Florida.

The collaboration between companies and communities can accelerate the widespread acceptance of sustainable business practices while also having a positive effect on the community, company and employees. Making an impact on local communities has been a point of pride for TD SYNNEX throughout its history and the history of its legacy companies.
