FedEx sets out action on emissions

FedEx says it has achieved a 37 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions intensity on a revenue basis across the enterprise since 2009 while revenue grew by 84 per cent.

Its Global Citizenship report highlights the fact that it will be adding 1,000 Chanje V8100 electric vehicles to its express fleet in California.

Plans to obtain 30 per cent of jet fuel from alternative fuels by 2030 reached a milestone when Red Rock Biofuels broke ground on its bio refinery in Oregon last year. The first delivery of alternative jet fuel is anticipated in 2020.

The company also said it is ahead of plan for its FedEx Cares goal of investing $200 million in more than 200 global communities by 2020.

“The annual FedEx Global Citizenship Report outlines our efforts to deliver positive outcomes and reflects the contributions FedEx Express Europe makes.” Said Bert Nappier, President, FedEx Express Europe. “As we continue to build Europe’s premier logistics business, this report sets our vision and priorities for corporate social and environmental responsibility, and our progress towards these as we proudly work to deliver positive change in our communities.”
