XPO, a leading provider of freight transportation services, has been named one of the Most Socially Responsible Companies in France for 2023. This is the third consecutive year that XPO has been recognized for its strong culture of corporate social responsibility (CSR) as determined by by Statista, an independent global data firm, and announced in Le Point magazine.
Bruno Kloeckner, XPO’s managing director – France, said: “We are delighted to once again be named a socially responsible company from among the 2,000 candidates for this honour. We are also grateful to Statista and Le Point for recognizing that CSR remains at the heart of our culture at XPO. As one of France's leading transport companies, we remain committed to making further progress in the social and environmental aspects of our business and our industry”.
XPO has a long tradition of operational excellence in sustainable development. The company has been a signatory of the "Objectif CO2" Charter of the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) since 2007, and has pledged its commitment to the six articles of the French Diversity Charter since 2021. In November, XPO was awarded the premium label for "Responsible Transport and Logistics" by the National Road Transport Federation (FNTR).
XPO invests in numerous sustainability initiatives, including alternative-fuel fleet and multimodal transport solutions for customers, such as its pioneering combination of river and road transport for Franprix in Paris. The company also provides eco-training for drivers, uses its XPO Connect digital freight platform to reduce fuel consumption through efficient routing, and invests in on-board fleet technology to improve driver safety.
Statista determines the Most Socially Responsible Companies by rating each candidate on three areas of corporate responsibility — environmental, social and governance — using key performance indicators. Final scores are derived from a combination of publicly available CSR information and a public perception survey
