By offering direct access to emissions data, FedEx® Sustainability Insights equips customers with the information they need to meet consumer demands and advance their own sustainability initiatives. The introduction of FedEx® Sustainability Insights aligns with FedEx’s ongoing commitment to achieving carbon-neutral operations by 2040.
