GEODIS Seeks to Lower Emissions by 42%

GEODIS, a global logistics service provider, pledged to reduce its Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 42% and reduce the carbon intensity of subcontracted transport (Scope 3) by 30% by 2030 compared to 2022.

Confronted with the climate emergency, GEODIS is committed to a process of reducing its carbon emissions through the application of a science-based approach (Science Based Targets - SBT), in line with the goal of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5° C. This commitment concerns both direct and indirect emissions.

GEODIS has set targets of 42% for the reduction of GHG emissions generated by its fleets of vehicles and buildings (scopes 1 and 2) and 30% for the carbon intensity of subcontracted transport (scope 3) by 2030, by comparison with the base year 2022. These targets have been submitted to the SBTi for approval.

“For many years, GEODIS has been working seriously alongside its customers and partners on measuring and reducing its impact on the climate,” said Marie-Christine Lombard, CEO of GEODIS, in a statement. “Our new goals will further speed up the process, and they establish GEODIS as one of the most committed companies. This new phase is fully in line with the Group’s ambition to make its lines of business ever more sustainable and to provide our customers with innovative, sustainable and ethical logistics offerings.”

GEODIS plans to transition towards alternative vehicles and modes using decarbonized or bio-sourced energies and installing suitable infrastructures for refueling and charging. The company set a target of providing low-carbon delivery services in 40 French cities by the end of 2024. 

The company’s plans include measures to lower GHG emissions on all forms of transport involved in its operations, such as increasing the use of sustainable marine fuel (SMF) and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

GEODIS also plans to lower carbon emissions of sites assuming a 40% improvement in overall energy efficiency, as well as the use of a minimum of 90% of low-carbon energy.
