Being a responsible corporate citizen, the institution takes pride in establishing this special project where they aim to educate the general public about eco-friendly transportation technologies that are available. These options are made available through global technological advancements, and will encourage customers to convert to the utilisation of eco-friendly energy sources.Moreover, FedEx has also taken worldwide initiative in offsetting carbon emissions. 364 l ow emission hybrid vehicles, 118 Zero emission electric vehicles and zero emission electric tricycles have been introduced to the FedEx fleet by the end of 2012.
