Funding for a sustainable future
As a company that connects 99% of the world’s GDP, we’re taking bold steps to help the only home—and place of business—we’ve got. Our Sustainability Bond Framework is designed to help us fund initiatives that have clear environmental and social benefits.
Addressing environmental and social issues
Proceeds from any financings issued under the Framework will be used to fund projects that further FedEx environmental and social sustainability goals, including those announced as part of the Commitment to Carbon-Neutral Operations by 2040.
We intend to follow the voluntary guidelines of the Green Bond Principles (GBP) 2018 and the Social Bond Principles (SBP) 2020 to govern any financings in accordance with the Sustainability Bond Guidelines. We also intend for project areas to map to the relevant United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Sustainalytics, a recognized ESG ratings agency, has also provided a Second Party Opinion on the alignment of the Framework to the various Principles, as well as the potential benefits and impacts of the projects funded through the initiative.
