ethical companies

FedEx Corp. has launched a new tool, FedEx® Sustainability Insights (FSI), giving customers in Australia access to estimated emissions information on their international shipments within the FedEx transportation network.

Customers in Australia and select Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa (AMEA) markets* can use the data to help make informed decisions on their future shipping strategy to reduce their impact on the planet.

“Environmental stewardship and transparent sustainability reporting is now a universal business imperative2,” says Kawal Preet, President of Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa region, FedEx Express.

“At the same time, consumers also consider sustainability in their decision-making for e-commerce purchases3.”

Created by FedEx Dataworks, the innovative cloud-based data engine uses near-real-time FedEx network data to estimate Co2 emissions. Customers can view estimated emissions data for individual tracking numbers as well as aggregate historical data for their accounts.

Data displayed in the tool includes mode of transport, service type, and country or territory for all eligible FedEx Express® shipments.**

“FedEx® Sustainability Insights gives our customers direct access to emissions data they need to help them decide how to meet consumer expectations and drive their own business and sustainability efforts forward,” adds Kawal.

With sustainability being a strategic priority for businesses of all kinds1, FedEx® Sustainability Insights is a tool that can give customers better visibility of emissions within their supply chains and support reporting and strategic future planning.

“Advancing environmental sustainability priorities is becoming increasingly important for our customers,” explains Peter Langley, Vice President, FedEx Express Australasia.

“Going forward, we will be able to support them with direct access to emissions data to support their own carbon emission goals. With the help of FedEx® Sustainability Insights, customers can better understand their shipping patterns and resulting environmental impact.”

This new offering complements the company’s ongoing efforts to achieve carbon neutral operations by 2040. FedEx globally is focusing on areas such as electrification of FedEx pickup and delivery vehicles; more efficient facilities, fuels, and fleets; and investments in natural carbon capture.
