Environment

Agility is committed to reducing the carbon footprint of our own operations and working with partners across our value chain to reduce our collective impact on climate change.

Our Two-Pronged Approach

Investing in Innovation

Agility partners with innovative companies to drive shareholder value and catalyze transformation in heavy industry and supply chain. Agility has invested $139 million in companies with ESG at their core. Agility is also a founding member of the First Mover’s Coalition, launched by the World Economic Forum to scale procurement and development of net-zero technology.

Driving Greener Operations

Agility is re-scoping its environmental goals following the sale of its logistics business to DSV. Our current focus is on strengthening our emissions reporting systems and improving data quality in our remaining subsidiary businesses, with a view to setting a new baseline for the business moving forward. Many Agility businesses use environment management systems, with currently 61% of our Group operations holding ISO 14001 certifications today.
