Sustainability

Our founding companies, La Poste and Swiss Post, were ahead of their time when focusing on sustainability.

Asendia is proudly continuing that heritage, with sustainability now our core strategic focus. We’re taking positive, responsible actions to minimize our environmental impact, and each of our customers is helping us on our way there.

 

Asendia currently offsets all its CO2 emissions for transport within Europe and from Europe to other continents, excluding first-mile collection and last-mile delivery. We continue to work hard all over the world to do even better through our commitment to measuring, reducing, offsetting and advising.

Our e-PAQ and Mail services to France and Switzerland are the highlight of our global sustainability offer. In 2020, items that were directly added into the La Poste (direct access) network for delivery were 100% carbon neutral; this was the same in Switzerland for mail items. From 2021, all national parcel products added to the Swiss Post network will also be 100% carbon neutral. At Asendia, we, therefore, offer two fully sustainable services, e-PAQ and Mail, to two major European e-commerce destinations, France and Switzerland.

Renewable Energy

Project: Investing in Wind Farm Sites in India

We're offsetting our carbon emissions by investing in seven wind farm sites in India. The 113 turbines together produce enough energy to meet the annual needs of 600,000 individuals. As well as providing cleaner energy, the wind farms support local economies.

Project: Ecological current from farm biogas, Switzerland

This project, supported by Swiss Post, reduces greenhouse gases that are harmful to the climate and encourages the use of renewable energies for electricity and heating. Thanks to gas installations, Swiss farms can now produce clean electricity.
