Our Emissions Reduction Progress

In 2020, Agility’s direct emissions increased an estimated 6% from 2019 levels. Efficiency initiatives to reduce electricity and fuel usage were offset by improvements in emissions reporting, which have increased the number of markets included in our carbon footprint, as well as investments in cold chain warehousing in the Middle East. In 2021, planned investments in solar PVs will become operational, and are expected to significantly reduce direct emissions.
