Ambitious emissions reduction plan from 3PL

31 January 2024

GEODIS HAS pledged to reduce its scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 42% and reduce the carbon intensity of subcontracted transport (scope 3) by 30% by 2030 compared to 2022.

These targets have been submitted to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) for approval. To achieve these ambitious objectives, Geodis will continue the transition towards alternative vehicles and modes using carbon-free or bio-sourced energies and installing suitable infrastructures for refueling and charging. Collaborative innovation is key to these transformations, says the firm.

Alongside the transition of its own fleet, GEODIS is carrying out measures to reduce GHG emissions on all forms of transport involved in its operations. Its plan entails the use of sustainable marine fuel (SMF) and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

Reducing the carbon emissions of sites assumes a 40% improvement in overall energy efficiency as well as the availability of a minimum of 90% of low-carbon energy. Projects for new sites incorporate the most stringent environmental requirements. 

The Group's senior executives already have a climate criterion incorporated into the variable portion of their remuneration.
