Our Sustainability Roadmap For
The future of our operations at FedEx is closely tied to the future of our environment. Our sustainability commitment means stepping up – for communities and businesses everywhere.
Individuals, governments, small businesses, corporations; it’s given us all overwhelming pause for thought. So, what are we doing to address this at FedEx? And how do we think about sustainability?
There are many ways we can take action. Everything from understanding that people want to ship green, and work at green companies to how we create more value for our customers – sustainably.
Roadmap to carbon neutrality
We are investing more than US$2 billion to make our global operations more sustainable. In March, we announced our goal to be carbon neutral by 2040. The 2040 target puts us way ahead of many companies. It actually outpaces the goals set by the Paris Climate Agreement by a decade.
Our motto: Reduce, Replace, Revolutionize
We’ve made significant strides in lowering our greenhouse gas emissions footprint through a Reduce, Replace, Revolutionize approach.
By 2030, all FedEx Express global pickup and delivery vehicle purchases will be electric, and by 2037 our entire fleet will be zero emission vehicles, including almost 8000 in Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa.
New strategies to live by
This path we are on toward sustainability requires new strategies - strategies powered by technology and innovation. Our partnership with Yale University is a great example. We’ll commit $100 million over five years to the Yale Centre for Natural Carbon Capture to support research into removing and storing Earth’s excess carbon. That’s a bold commitment to finding responsible, future-focused solutions which ensure the health of our planet.
Carbon neutrality by 2040 makes strong business sense. It’s part of our long-standing commitment to sustainability and aligns with how we want to empower our customers to do good as well. It’s not just the right thing to do, it’s what customers and future generations of customers expect.
But most of all - our world depends on it. To find out more about our sustainability initiatives and commitment to the future of our planet, click here.
