We are proud to share that from 1st January 2022, Asendia has become 100% carbon neutral.

Having focused on sustainability since our foundation in 2012, we have spent the last 3 years extending our sustainability strategy in response to growing concerns about the environmental impact of supply chain operations. We believe that our new sustainability offer is leading the way in proving how the sector can neutralise its environmental footprint.

In 2020, Asendia offset emissions on international transport within Europe and from Europe to other continents. The total offset was 50,990 tCO2e which supported an EcoAct verified wind farm project in IndiaIn 2021, Asendia then announced that we would now offset emissions on international transport worldwide.

As of 2022, not only does Asendia offset all international transport emissions, we also include those by our delivery partners, parcel returns, our building emissions, machinery, and necessary business travel.

Offsetting from 2021 and 2022 will support another EcoAct verified wind farm project, this time in China where coal still covers nearly 70% of the country’s energy needs. We have also made a commitment to sustainability on our board, with our Chief HR Officer Barbara Schielke adding Corporate Social Responsibility to her position, a move she feels extremely passionate about.

 

“Our world is becoming more connected than ever, and international delivery is a big part of that connection. As one of the largest global logistic providers, we at Asendia know that protecting our planet comes first. From January 2022, we are taking a big step forward by off-setting 100% of all carbon emissions. We are excited to lead the way in our industry and will continue to find sustainable solutions for our clients in the future."

Barbara Schielke, Chief HR & CSR Officer at Asendia

“Our sustainable commitment continues in the footsteps of our founding companies – La Poste and Swiss Post. Asendia is proudly following our heritage with sustainability as our core focus. Creating a dedicated role within the board was a natural step to our ongoing commitment.” 

Marc Pontet, CEO at Asendia
