India to Benefit from FedEx’s  Billion Investment in Global Urban Protection Efforts

July 11, 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 more than $2 million in sustainable communities. FedEx will support 40 city protection projects around the world, including India, from March to May 2024.

FedEx Cares volunteers, in partnership 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 improve the health and well-being of communities. This effort is part of FedEx’s broader commitment to the environment.

“More than a symbolic act of commitment to the environment, our initiatives reflect our commitment to India,” said Suvendu Choudhury, vice president, India Operations and CE, MEISA, FedEx. “By improving urban landscapes, these initiatives also contribute to broader environmental efforts, and FedEx is actively participating in shaping a greener future for India.”

This initiative is closely aligned with India’s Bonn Challenge commitment to restore 26 million hectares of forest by 2030(1) and its National Forest Policy, which aims to cover 33 percent of the country’s land area with forests.(2) The work of FedEx Cares volunteers demonstrates how FedEx’s global efforts are supporting India’s progress towards a sustainable future.
