2016 FedEx Global Citizenship Report: Deliver It Forward

Mar 29, 2016

Our eighth annual FedEx Global Citizenship Report has just been released. It’s titled Deliver It Forward since it focuses on the need for delivering positive impact around the world.

If you want to deliver it forward, you have to connect. Connecting to reach people. Connecting to transmit wellbeing, or “good” – often through trade, or “goods.” Connecting the world responsibly and resourcefully. That’s what FedEx and its more than 340,000 team members strive to do each and every business day. Because we believe doing so helps enable communities to create jobs, to spur innovation, and to grow their standards of living.
