FedEx assets that qualify for the EarthSmart Solutions designation must clearly meet or exceed the sustainability standards set by the company — and they must exceed standard practices in the industry.

Through EarthSmart Solutions, FedEx hopes to meet — and exceed — the goals set for reducing emissions and improving energy efficiency.
