Sustainability

Our founding companies La Poste and Swiss Post were ahead of their time in focusing on sustainability. We continue that heritage by taking positive, responsible action to minimise our impact on the natural world. Sustainability comes naturally to us and reflects our core values.

Trust

You can rely on us to do all we can to limit our impact on the environment.

Friendliness

We work with all our suppliers and partners to share what we know about sustainable practices.

Ease of use

Our approach is to make it easy by providing sustainable services that everyone benefits from.

Experience the difference

We are committed to Measure, Reduce, Offset and Advise - we apply this to everything we do. From energy efficient transport to investment in carbon offsetting projects, we're proud that all our deliveries from Europe are now carbon neutral. We're working hard all over the world to do even better.

Suppliers

We like to choose suppliers who share our sustainability values and can show that they are making a difference in the way they work.

Customers

We strive to develop every service with sustainable best practice built in. That helps our customers to grow their businesses in the most environmentally friendly way.

Our sustainability key commitments

Truly sustainable business practices work for us as a differentiator in the market and to support our long term, market-leading success.


Measure

We work out our carbon emissions from transport, energy use, business travel and commuting.

Reduce

We're always finding ways to make our business more energy efficient. That means using transport resources better, conserving energy and buying responsibly.

Offset

We offset our measured carbon emissions by voluntarily investing in sustainability projects, without passing on costs to our customers.

Advise

We have developed direct mail management services that cut out unnecessary and unwanted postal deliveries, saving on both materials and energy.

Offsetting through a renewable energy project

In India, we're offsetting our carbon emissions by investing in seven wind farm sites. The 113 turbines together produce enough energy to meet the annual needs of 600,000 individuals. As well as providing cleaner energy, the wind farms support local economies. The wind farm developer gives back a proportion of profits to community projects, including free school meals, health clinics, road maintenance and financial skills workshops.

There are also programmes to create jobs and support farmers. We're proud that our project makes a positive difference to everyday life for so many and is recognised by the prestigious international Voluntary Carbon Standard.
