FedEx releases 2019 Global Citizenship Report

Chennai: FedEx Corp has announced the online release of its 2019 Global Citizenship Report (GCR), which includes updates on the progress of the company’s citizenship goals in FY18, which ended on 31 May, 2018.

FedEx expanded its retail networks to give customers more options to pick-up, ship or have packages held, including at 5,000 locations across Hong Kong and Taiwan. In the US, 80 per cent of the population is within five miles of a FedEx hold location, the release said.

The company is ahead of plan for its FedEx Cares goal of investing $200 million in more than 200 global communities by 2020, it said and added that the firm has already invested in more than 200 communities and is on track to meet the total contribution goal early. In FY18, the company invested more than $55 million in corporate charitable contributions.

“Our reputation is built on the ability to connect people and possibilities,” said Mitch Jackson, chief sustainability officer, FedEx Corp. “We constantly strive to be a better corporate citizen while setting the standard for what it means to deliver positive impact for our team members, customers and communities around the world.”
