Our sustainable logistics | FM Logistic

Sustainability

The world is at a junction. That's why we strive every day to collectively improve the supply chain for greener and more responsible consumption.

We contribute to the development of a sustainable logistics network by cooperating with public and private partners. We are convinced of the benefits of sustainable logistics. We believe that together we can make a difference.

Sustainable development vision

We act collectively to deliver positive impacts.

As part of a global ecosystem, cooperation is the key to success in building sustainable logistics and supply chain management. This is why we team up with various organisations and stakeholders. Our commitments are based on two fundamental standards: the United Nations Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals.
If you are a customer, we help you build common sustainable trajectories. If you are a candidate, join our company and become a change agent by contributing to the sustainability of logistics and transport. If you are a partner, we believe in co-creating sustainable solutions. Let’s create a sustainable supply chain together!

Impact report

We are committed to providing our stakeholders with accurate and reliable data on the impact of our activities on society and the environment.

At FM Logistic, we strongly believe in the importance of sustainable logistics. In 2018, we started an ambitious sustainability programme based on three pillars: taking care of our employees, changing the environmental footprint of our operations and co-designing a sustainable supply chain. This programme is the result of collective work, internally and externally. It is implemented in all countries where our group operates. Since 2019, FM Logistic reports on the main impacts of the company’s activity on the economy, society (jobs, health, education, …) and the environment (greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, …). This information is published in an interactive report that highlights the solutions we are implementing. We want to make a difference and take action for sustainable logistics and supply chain management.
