XPO Releases Sustainability Report

April 25, 2019

XPO Logistics released its first annual report on sustainability initiatives. The 2018 Sustainability Report details the company's initiatives in North America and Europe in key areas, such as safety, engagement, workplace inclusion and environmental protection. XPO intends to use its inaugural report as a baseline for future presentations.

Bradley Jacobs, chief executive officer of XPO Logistics, said, "We believe that the only enduring way to succeed is by making meaningful contributions to the success of others. I'm pleased that our new Sustainability Report captures the cultural aspects of our commitment to economic and environmental performance. We'll continue to adhere to the highest standards of business conduct, while staying aligned with our values and the interests of our stakeholders."

Ashfaque Chowdhury, XPO Logistics President, Supply Chain added, "When we started XPO in 2011, we set out to create a new logistics model designed from the ground up to help customers thrive in an era of technological disruption. Our company runs on innovation. Our approach is one of purpose-driven progress – for our customers, our employees and our communities.

Perhaps more than other industries, we depend on teamwork to move goods through complex global supply chains. That’s why sustainability – supporting our communities, creating an equitable workplace based on respect, driving a low-carbon economy and providing opportunities to build rewarding careers—is a natural part of how we think and act.

Our inaugural sustainability report lays out the steps we’re taking to deliver on our commitment. It’s the foundation for the work we’re doing to drive sustainability going forward. Through the combination of our culture of engagement and our ambitious commitment to innovation, we’re helping address society’s challenges. I want to call out a few highlights from our 2018 report:

Supporting healthy pregnancies and family bonding

In 2018, we announced comprehensive policies for women and families that are among the most progressive in the country, including up to 20 days of 100% paid time off to accommodate health and wellness needs during pregnancy and a family bonding benefit that gives primary caregivers six weeks of fully paid leave.

Driving down emissions, improving fuel efficiency

In North America, we bought nearly 800 new fuel-efficient tractors and deployed new routing technology to reduce empty miles. In Europe, we invested in alternative fuel and high-capacity trucks that reduce road miles and dramatically cut CO2 and NO2 emissions."
