An operating company of FedEx Corporation,FedEx’s approach to minimizing its impact on the environment is both comprehensive and innovative. The company’s EarthSmart program aims to find or create new ways not only to improve its own environmental performance, but also to point the way for other companies, in the aviation and logistics industries and beyond. Through myriad efforts from optimized flight planning routes to the introduction of new fuel efficient and lower emission aircraft to the building of solar-powered ground facilities and even the creation of a building with a vegetated roof, FedEx is committed to reducing its carbon footprint across every part of its operations. Its 20 by 20 program has the goal of reducing aircraft emission by 20% by 2020. To date, FedEx has achieved a 13.8% reduction.
