Sustainability at Asendia

Sustainability is one of Asendia’s main strategic priorities and is one in which we aim to excel. Not only is Sustainability a “must have” in the logistics industry today, it is also part of our DNA; a part of our heritage from our parent companies La Poste and Swiss Post.

Furthermore, Sustainability is fully compatible with our core values:

  • Trust: we aim to mitigate our impact on the environment
  • Friendliness: support our clients’ sustainability objectives by sharing our knowledge and expertise
  • Ease of Use: support and guide our clients through services and advice

Our business performance is fundamentally linked to sustainable performance and we aim to be exemplary in this area.

Asendia and Sustainability, engaging three major stakeholders

To become sustainable in the logistics sector requires smart thinking. The transportation of goods is by nature a source of emissions and so achieving sustainability is a challenge – this makes cooperation at every level essential. At Asendia we aim to work at continually improving sustainable cooperation between three main stakeholder groups: Customers, Employees and Suppliers.

True sustanability starts with our own people.
The Asendia team has a key role to play in reducing our carbon emissions and improving our environmental performance. We also want to make Asendia a great place to work’; to this end we will promote employee diversity and personal/professional development to create an enriching workplace.

We aim to improve sustainability in our supply chain  We will engage with existing suppliers to share best practices and improve environmental performance. Partnering with suppliers who care about sustainability has a positive impact and Sustainability will be a key factor in future purchasing contract negotiations.

Have the opportunity to choose a range of Sustainable solutions, developed by Asendia, to reduce environmental impact throughout the logistics chain. We will share best practices and offer products and services that reflect their desire for Sustainability.


Our scope of actions & sustainability key commitments

We embrace truly sustainable business practices, both as a differentiator in the market and as a strategy for long term, market-leading success.

Our strategy is built upon the mantra of Measure, Reduce, Offset and Advise, which is an integral part of everything we do.

  • Measure: We calculate carbon emissions linked to transportation, energy consumption, business travel and commuting.

  • Reduce: Making our business more energy efficient - optimising transport, increasing energy efficiency, purchasing responsibly.

  • Offset: Asendia is measuring and reducing direct and indirect carbon emissions. For emissions that cannot be reduced, Asendia is committed to voluntary carbon offsetting: it’s all part of the service for our European customers.

    From July 2014, all mail and deliveries from European customers is carbon neutral, at no cost to the customer. In Asia and USA, we are committed to evaluating market needs and propose tailored solutions.

  • Advise: Within its portfolio, Asendia provides sustainable services that avoid unnecessary sending of mail and therefore reduce carbon emissions without compromising quality of service.  

Our Sustainable Services



Asendia invests in a renewable energy project

Asendia’s carbon offset project consist of 7 wind farm sites, spread over three states in the Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Rajasthan regions of India.

Combined, 113 turbines over seven sites are inputting an annual production of nearly 470,000 MWh of renewable electricity into the local network. This is equivalent to the annual power consumption of 600,000 individuals.



As well as supplying cleaner energy, the wind farms are also providing strong social and economic benefits to local communities. The project developer invests a share of their profits back into local initiatives, supporting Education, Health and Job Creation project as well as providing assistance to farmers.
Among others this includes, the provision of free school meals, helping to raise school attendance; mobile health clinics for families and their animals; the improvement of local roads; financial skills workshops for women to help them start their own businesses and become financially independent.

The project makes a positive difference to people’s daily lives and is verified under one of the most internationally recognised carbon offset standards – the Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS).
