India to Benefit from

11th July 2024  Mumbai, Maharashtra, India  FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, is investing over USD 2 million toward sustainable communities. FedEx will support 40 urban conservation projects worldwide, including India from March through May of 2024.

FedEx Cares volunteers, in collaboration with local NGOs, have successfully planted nearly 10,000 saplings in Mumbai and Delhi. These new trees will help reduce air pollution, mitigate the effects of urban heat islands and climate change, and enhance community health and wellness. These efforts are part of FedEx’s broader commitment to environmental stewardship.

“More than just a symbolic act of environmental commitment, our initiatives reflect our dedication to India,” expressed Suvendu Choudhury, Vice President Operations, India and CE, MEISA, FedEx. “By enhancing urban landscapes, these initiatives also contribute to broader ecological efforts, with FedEx actively participating to shape a greener future for India.”

This initiative aligns closely with India’s pledge under the Bonn Challenge to restore 26 million hectares of forest by 2030(1) and its National Forest Policy, which aims for forests to cover 33% of the country(2). The work of FedEx Cares volunteers showcases how FedEx’s global efforts support India’s progress toward a sustainable future.
