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.

Our 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.

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.

    Achievements

    As a people-oriented company, we are proud of our exceptional workforce.

    We innovate to support our teams and offer them ergonomic solutions such as our ERGOSKEL, developed in partnership with Hublex and the Compiègne University of Technology (UTC), which relieves 70% of the muscular activity of the upper limbs and the back.

    In addition, we provide our teams with other equipment such as the Viz-o (cervical exoskeleton), the JAPET (device to relieve lumbar pain), the picking manipulator (autonomous articulated arm on board a machine) or virtual reality helmets for risk prevention training.

  • We are committed to the following objectives:

    • -12% of energy consumed (baseline 2018). 
We have achieved -17% by 2020.
    • -19.6% reduction in carbon footprint in warehouses (2018 baseline). 70% of our 2020 target was achieved.
    • 100% of transport flows in Euro6 or alternative energies (biofuel, electric, hydrogen) (compared to the 2018 level). We have reached 80% of our 2020 target.
    • Contribute to a 30% reduction in the carbon footprint of transport by 2030.
  • As of 2019, 100% of our customers have a sustainability scorecard.

    We have an ongoing target of 20% of our turnover coming from sustainable offerings such as bulk and pooling.

    In addition, the United Nations has defined 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that represent the key societal and environmental challenges to be addressed by 2030. FM Logistic has identified priority SDGs for its sector and activities. Our sustainability policy must contribute to providing answers to the following challenges:

    • No. 8 Decent work and economic growth
    • No. 11 Sustainable cities and communities
