FedEx Drives Environmental

5th July 2024 Mumbai, Maharashtra, India  FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, is helping to safeguard biodiversity in India, which is home to 7-8 percent of all recorded species worldwide(1). FedEx has implemented various environmental community initiatives such as trash collection, cleanups, recycling, and tree planting across India. Collectively, two million dollars in charitable donations and hundreds of volunteer hours by FedEx team members in India are all part of a global company effort to strengthen urban ecosystems.

These initiatives use a collective impact model, collaborating with non-profits, government stakeholders, community members, FedEx Cares volunteers, and ‘Safari sathi’s’, to tackle beach pollution in Mumbai. These joint efforts resulted in the collection of more than 18 tons of waste, of which over 12 tons were recycled over the past one month, supporting the Municipal Corporation’s objectives to restore the city’s coastlines and promote responsible waste management. Beyond cleanup, the project educates beachgoers about biodiversity and engages community volunteers in discussions on the ecological importance of their contributions. Additionally, FedEx organized immersive shore walk sessions facilitated by local nonprofits. These sessions have been designed to enhance understanding of the area’s unique coastal ecosystems and encourage proactive conservation efforts.
