Sharing is caring!

FedEx Bangalore, India, July 31, 2023 –- FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) 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 CO2e emissions. Customers can view emissions data for individual tracking numbers as well as aggregate historical data for their accounts. Data displayed in the tool include mode of transport, service type, and country or territory for all eligible FedEx Express® shipments.*

“Reporting on sustainability and using this data to inform decision-making has become a business priority. Simultaneously, consumers are prioritizing sustainability in their purchasing decisions[2],” said Kami Viswanathan, senior vice president of FedEx Express Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, and Africa operations. “FedEx® Sustainability Insights is designed to provide our customers with near real-time visibility to their emissions data, empowering them to make data-driven decisions and improve transparency in their sustainability reporting.”

The new offering complements the company’s ongoing efforts to achieve carbon-neutral operations by 2040.

FedEx® Sustainability Insights will support its work toward this goal by providing insights into further opportunities for network efficiency with data-backed predictive insights and modeling.
