GEODIS ranked as environmental leader

For the second consecutive year, CDP has awarded global logistics provider GEODIS, the score of A- which is associated with companies who are environmental leaders.

Evaluated every year since 2014, GEODIS has been awarded an A- score by CDP, an international not- for-profit charity, whose mission is to encourage companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

Only 14 per cent of the 5,800 companies assessed by CDP worldwide in 2020 received an equivalent or higher rating.

For ten years now, the Group has pursued its goal of reducing the impact of its activities on the environment and fighting climate change.

“At GEODIS, we are convinced that our success resides as much with controlling our environmental, social and societal impact as it does in our economic performance. For this reason, GEODIS implemented an exemplary corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy ten years ago. To put our convictions into practice, we act on what we can do directly to reduce our environmental impact while also working with others in the sector, particularly with our suppliers and customers” Marie-Christine Lombard, GEODIS Chief Executive Officer said.

“The CDP A- score is an indication of GEODIS’ transparency with regard to greenhouse gas emissions and the robust, exhaustive analysis that we carry out in order to identify, mitigate and manage environmental risks with our suppliers,” Cécile Bray, GEODIS’ CSR Director said.

“It is also the reflection of GEODIS’ commitment to the decarbonation of road transport in the European Union.”

In 2020, GEODIS was involved in the creation of the ECTA (European Clean Trucking Alliance)1. The Group also works with various institutions to support the development of low-emission vehicles.
