Taking responsibility for our footprint

Decoupling economic growth from emissions

The transport and logistics sector accounts for a significant share of global CO2 emissions contributing to climate change.

On the other hand, the sector is also a key enabler of world trade essential to global economic growth and improving living standards, particularly in developing countries.

Therefore, decarbonising the sector is an essential step in decoupling economic growth from CO2 emissions and putting the world on a more sustainable path.

As a global logistics provider, we see it as our shared responsibility to support limiting global warming by accelerating our own ESG performance.
