Report highlights key role logistics plays in helping customers around the globe meet their own ESG goals

GXO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: GXO), the world’s largest pure-play contract logistics provider, announced today the release of its 2022 ESG Report. The report features an expanded new “ESG Scorecard” with six global goals tied to GXO’s material ESG issues and two new public safety targets.

“We are pleased to continue sharing GXO’s progress towards enabling the circular economy and the innovative ways in which we help our customers achieve their own ESG goals,” said Malcolm Wilson, Chief Executive Officer, GXO. “This year’s report introduces sweeping new ESG goals focused on the issues that are most critical to our business and our people. We have also announced new safety targets in all regions as we continue our journey to operational excellence.”

GXO’s ESG Report provides its stakeholders an accessible resource for learning more about the company’s ESG efforts and for tracking progress towards goals. Highlights from 2022 include:

  • A 17.4% reduction in scope 1 and 2 emissions since 2019.
  • More than 1.2 million hours of training and development provided to team members as part of building a workplace that cares for and develops team members.
  • Launching the company’s Business Partner Code of Conduct to better manage ethical conduct in its supply chain.

The 2022 Report also introduces targets linked to GXO’s number one value – safety. Building on its industry-leading safety record, the company is setting targets using the most representative regional metric to accelerate its journey on the path to operational excellence:

  • In Americas and Asia Pacific operations, reduce Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) by 15% vs. 2022 baseline.
  • In U.K. and European operations, reduce Lost Time Incident Rate (LTIR) by 15% by 2027 vs. 2022 baseline.
