Our direct carbon footprint comes from the electricity we use to power our warehouses and the fuel we use to drive our trucks. We do our best to minimize our impact and drive innovation for improved environmental performance.
As environmental, social, labor and governance imperatives come into sharper focus, the business case (again) for putting sustainability at the core of a company’s strategy.
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.

As a freight forwarder, over 95% of our total carbon footprint is generated by shipments on airplanes, ships, trains or trucks that Agility does not own or operate. Collaboration is key, so we work with shippers, carriers and other supply chain partners to drive a transition to low carbon supply chains.
