Taking action through research and development

We're not just interested in sustainability. We're invested. We've pledged $100 million to help establish the Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture, where researchers will focus on ways to remove and store Earth's excess carbon. Additionally, we're teaming up with GM's Brightdrop to make delivery via electric vehicles a reality.

FedEx invests in inaugural TPG Rise Climate fund

FedEx is proud to join a diverse coalition of investors in the inaugural fund of TPG Rise Climate. The fund is designed to help entrepreneurs and businesses grow viable climate technologies across five categories: clean energy, enabling solutions, decarbonized transport, greening industrials, and agriculture & natural solutions.  

Our investment in the TPG Rise Climate fund is a continuation of our long-standing support for entrepreneurs working to scale their businesses and reach new markets.  And our collaboration with other leaders and innovators to accelerate solutions that address climate change.  

Earlier this year, FedEx helped establish the Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture, where researchers will focus on ways to remove and store Earth's excess carbon. 

Funding initiatives with clear environmental and social impact is an important way we help bring sustainable solutions to life while we continue to reduce the environmental footprint of our operations.
