2022 Sustainability Report
Our 2022 Sustainability Highlights
In a year of transformation, XPO’s commitment to sustainable practices remained rooted in our corporate values: safe, inclusive, entrepreneurial, innovative and respectful.
Teaching the Next Generation of Drivers
In North America, our driver training schools are a major contributor to our superior record of road safety. Led by veteran XPO drivers, our training schools not only prepare new drivers to earn a Class-A License, but also immerse them in our safety practices and culture of caution.
Championing High-Potential Talent
In 2021, we launched a new professional development program, XPO Rise, to strengthen our pipeline of employees who have the potential to move into executive roles across XPO.
Expanding an Environmentally-responsible Fleet
As a top provider of asset-based LTL services in North America and the owner of one of the largest road fleets in Europe, we have a responsibility to lead the industry in innovation and sustainability. We continue to focus on reducing our carbon footprint as well as improving the overall efficiency of all resources we consume.
Creating a Welcoming Environment
We maintain a rewarding work environment, grounded in a strong governance structure, that allows employees to build the careers they choose. We encourage open communication, champion integrity, celebrate individuality and cultivate a diversity of talents and perspectives.
Our Management of Greenhouse Gas Emissions
We're focused on managing and reducing our GHG emissions through a combination of initiatives, including an upgraded fuel management system, adoption of alternative fuels and investments in electric vehicles and equipment upgrades. As a result, we've been successful in reducing our total Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions since 2018.
Inviting Employee Feedback
Employee feedback contributes substantially to how XPO tailors workplace policies, job opportunities, benefit programs and more. We’re continually seeking the best ways to serve the needs of employees and their families.
Our Approach to Leadership
Our strong governance structure, including a diverse board of directors with independent committees, serves to reinforce our commitment to operating with integrity.
Safeguarding Employees’ Health
While the business impact of COVID-19 moderated in 2021, there was an ongoing emotional and physical toll on employees. We maintained our diligence in safeguarding employee safety, while also meeting the ongoing demands for transportation and logistics services around the world.
Environmental, Social and Governance Scorecard
Developed in 2020, our ESG scorecard provides a progressive means of evaluating the management of ESG initiatives and incentivizing long-term successive ESG achievements.
CEO Letter Summary
As we share our progress on sustainability, I want to thank our customers and shareholders for their trust, our Board for its oversight and our employees for embracing our goals. By building our business around our values — safe, inclusive, innovative, entrepreneurial and respectful — we make it possible to always act in the best interests of our stakeholders and do so in a sustainable way.
