FedEx has launched a new tool, FedEx Sustainability Insights (FSI), giving customers in India access to emissions information on their shipments within the FedEx network. They can use the data to help make informed decisions on their future shipping strategy to reduce their impact on the planet.
Created by FedEx Dataworks, the innovative cloud-based data engine uses near-real-time FedEx network data to estimate CO2 emissions. Customers can view emissions data for individual tracking numbers as well as aggregate historical data for their accounts.
With sustainability being a strategic priority for businesses of all kinds, 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.
“Reporting on sustainability and using this data to inform decision-making has become a business priority. Simultaneously, consumers are prioritising sustainability in their purchasing decisions,” said Kami Viswanathan, Senior Vice President of FedEx Express Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, and Africa operations.
The new offering complements the company’s ongoing efforts to achieve carbon-neutral operations by 2040. FedEx 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.
