Together with Europe’s largest postal operators, Swiss Post is taking part in the programme launched by the umbrella organization PostEurop to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
The goal of this initiative is to cut emissions of CO2, the most important greenhouse gas emitted by the participating organizations, by 10 percent over the next five years. Its involvement in the programme signals Swiss Post’s rigorous continuation of the environmental policy it launched in 1996. Between 2000 and 2005, it cut its CO2 emissions by 9 percent and is therefore already close to achieving the Kyoto Protocol’s targets for 2010.
Swiss Post is taking part in PostEurop’s programme to reduce greenhouse gases.
PostEurop is the association of the 43 European universal-service postal operators. The initiative is based on the voluntary participation of PostEurop members and currently enjoys the support of nine postal operators, including Deutsche Post World Net, La Poste Group (France), TNT (Netherlands), and De Post/La Poste (Belgium), with further postal operators expected to follow suit by the end of the year.
They have undertaken to reduce their CO2 emissions by 10 percent over the next five years. The initiative is thus aimed at the most significant environmental impact of European postal operators: greenhouse gases, which account for around 70 percent of the total impact.Read More
