The Goals Database
Responsible Fiber Sourcing
After corrugated packaging, paper represents our most used material, so FedEx operating companies have implemented a variety of strategies to responsibly source, use and recycle paper.
In addition to purchasing our paper from certified forest programs, we are looking to reduce tree pulp consumption overall. We have already begun purchasing “tree-free” products, or those that use alternative fibers, like agricultural residues. We plan to continue researching these alternatives and others to ensure the continued reduction of our paper footprint.
Manufacturing / Operational Waste
We emphasize efficiency in energy use, facility design and construction, paper and other materials used and waste management.
