We have a holistic approach to sustainability

People and the environment we all live in build the focus of our responsibility. We take this responsibility towards employees, the society and the environment very seriously. Therefore, we actively engage in fairness, education and a minimal impact on the environment.

By achieving these goals, we also contribute to the mobility and reliable availability of goods, which, in turn, constitute the backbone of the economy. Our goal is to attain sustainable commercial success whilst protecting the environment for future generations.

Social commitment to carbon-neutral shipping: our responsibility

As a parcel service operating worldwide, GLS is aware of its responsibility – towards the environment and society. This is why we actively support people and environmental protection through various initiatives and campaigns.
For us, sustainability means, among other things, continually moving towards carbon-neutral shipping. But we are also committed to our customers, employees and partners. We also see ourselves as responsible for society and for people in need.
