As the country’s largest logistics company, Austrian Post bears a special responsibility to the environment which it aims to fulfil on the basis of Group-wide environmental protection measures.
The focus of Austrian Post’s environmental protection measures is the CO2 NEUTRAL DELIVERY initiative, which Austrian Post launched in the year 2011 to continually and extensively reduce its environmental impacts, especially the greenhouse gas emissions it generates.
The initiative consists of three synchronized steps:
1. Efficiency increases in the vehicle fleet and buildings
2. Alternative technologies (renewable energies and e-mobility)
3. Compensation for remaining emissions
The success of this initiative is demonstrated by the results. Austrian Post has been delivering all mail items within Austria in a CO2 neutral manner since 2011. Accordingly, it is a leader in this area in the international logistics sector.
