FedEx Long-Term Commitment to Sustainability: Emissions Reduction Goal Increased Fifty Percent

August 20, 2012

In 2008, FedEx announced it would seek to reduce carbon emissions intensity from its FedEx Express aircraft and improve the fuel efficiency of its FedEx Express vehicle fleet by 20 percent by 2020, as compared with its 2005 performance. Less than five years later, FedEx has nearly achieved these goals and is today announcing a revised, more aggressive target.

FedEx is well on its way to achieving the 20 percent aircraft emissions intensity reduction and fuel efficiency improvement goals, having reduced aircraft emissions intensity by 13.8 percent and improved vehicle fuel efficiency by 16.6 percent at the end of its fiscal year 2011.  Consequently, FedEx has increased its aircraft emissions goal by 50 percent, to a 30 percent reduction in global aircraft emissions intensity by its original 2020 target date.  FedEx has also reaffirmed its commitment to sourcing at least 30 percent of its jet fuel from alternative fuels by the year 2030.

These efforts are detailed in the company’s fourth annual Global Citizenship Report, released today online.  Also featured in the report are successes in the company’s other focus areas of Economics & Access, People & Workplace and Community & Disaster Relief.
