FedEx Strengthens Sustainable Access For Company And Community

Stock quotes in this article: FDX

FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) released its sixth annual Global Citizenship Report today, outlining steps the company has taken to build a more sustainable business by improving its operational efficiency and engaging in local communities.

“FedEx continues to make the investments that will provide more sustainable access and future opportunities for our business, our customers and the communities we serve,” said Mitch Jackson, vice president of Environmental Affairs and Sustainability for FedEx. “By focusing on strategic initiatives in both our company and the community at large, we are helping to meet the long-term economic and social needs of FedEx and the community.”

The report demonstrates that one key indicator of these efforts has been the reduction of the company’s environmental footprint while experiencing year-over-year growth. In fact, FedEx revenues were up in fiscal year 2013 while emissions from the company’s owned and operated fleet and facilities dropped by 1.3 percent. However, as the report outlines, FedEx leadership and improvements in its operational sustainability—and its environmental and industry impact— are just one of the many ways that FedEx is providing long-term value to the business and the communities in which it operates. In addition to environmental efficiency, the report outlines key progress in areas such as economics and market access, community and disaster relief, and people and workplace.

FedEx Fosters Connections to Open Markets and Small Business Growth

By focusing on creating open and accessible markets, FedEx provides long-term value for shareholders, communities, customers, and local and global economies. FedEx is a strong proponent of policies and agreements that remove barriers to trade and simplify international business. In FY13, the company actively promoted the expansion of free trade through proposed agreements like the International Services Agreement, the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. FedEx was also a strong advocate for the groundbreaking World Trade Organization Facilitation agreement that was concluded in December 2013.
