Excellence. Simply Delivered. In a sustainable way.

Logistics is an essential driver of global trade, economic growth, and individual prosperity but it also leaves an enormous environmental footprint. As the world’s leading logistics company, we have worked hard to set an example for sustainable business, from introducing the industry’s first green product to being the first logistics company to commit to net-zero emissions.

Our sustainability commitments

We are doing this by committing ourselves to a set greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions target by 2030 in line with the Paris Agreement through the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and investing €7 billion to reach it.

  • With approximately 600,000 employees, we are one of the world's largest employers in our industry. To be a great company to work for all, we take action to provide a safe, inclusive and engaging working environment for all our employees.
