CSR Policy Statements
Corporate social responsibility is vitally important to who we are as a company. Our policies ensure that we rigorously adhere to the highest standards in ethical behavior, environmental sustainability, data security and more.
Code of Business Conduct and Ethics
Our global Code of Business Conduct and Ethics sets a high standard for behavioral conduct in areas that include workplace health, safety and environment, human rights, harassment and discrimination, conflicts of interest and gifts and entertainment. Every team member is familiarized with the Code during onboarding and encouraged to report all suspected violations using our 24-hour FedEx Alert Line service or by contacting management, Legal or Human Resources. The Code is publicly available on our Investor Relations website.
FedEx recognizes that the long-term health of our business is directly connected to the health of the planet and local communities. We remain focused on sourcing environmental solutions that will lessen our footprint, while serving as an example to our peers. Our Environmental Policy focuses on finding solutions that reduce our own footprint and inspire action in others. Our enterprise-wide Environmental Management System (EMS) is based on the key elements of ISO 14001. Each FedEx operating company identifies and works to minimize relevant environmental impacts, and appoints a senior sustainability leader accountable for performance.
Combating Slavery and Human Trafficking
FedEx is committed to the zero-tolerance policies adopted by the U.S. and other governments to combat slavery or the trafficking of persons for any purpose. FedEx prohibits trafficking-related activities and we expect our suppliers and contractors to uphold these important principles, as well. FedEx encourages the reporting of any suspected violations through the FedEx Alert Line or other channel, and our policies forbid any form of retaliation for fulfilling this obligation. For more information, please see our Policy Prohibiting Trafficking in Persons.
Data Security and Privacy
