FedEx is blazing a trail on the efficient fleets and fuels of tomorrow. Mitch Jackson, VP of Environmental Affairs and Sustainability at FedEx Corporation, explains how.
Practical sustainability requires leadership, service innovation and efficiency from FedEx team members.
We also need smart collaboration with other organizations, such as Environmental Defense Fund and WRI EMBARQ.
It's about strategic and transformational stewardship that adds value from our efforts to be more responsible.”
Technological innovation is the most revolutionary development I see on the horizon, whether we are talking about vehicle electrification, autonomous capabilities, or other technical breakthroughs.
Operational changes are also needed. For example, FedEx is also advocating for the use of 33-foot twin trailers, which would reduce carbon emissions by 4.4 billion pounds each year and save more than 200 million gallons of fuel and reduce accidents.”
