Social, economic and ecological

We act responsibly

As a leading European group in the shipment sector, GLS is fully aware of its responsibility to the environment and to society.

The GLS Group considers sustainability to be a holistic concept that comprises ecological as well as the social and economic aspects of social responsibility.

This means providing excellence in parcel logistics for customers and job security for employees, both going hand in hand. With its service, GLS also contributes to mobility and the reliable supply of goods, which are the backbone of the economy of every country.

It is the Group’s aim to achieve sustainable economic success, while protecting the environment for future generations. GLS therefore considers itself intrinsically committed to the society in which and for which it operates.

In its sustainability report GLS provides information on planned and ongoing projects in this field, as well as key information about its ecological footprint and examples of its social commitment across Europe.

What sustainability means for GLS:

  • Using low emission vehicles
  • New green buildings and investing in modernisation
  • Reducing the use of fuel, paper and electricity consumption
  • Properly, continuously trained staff
  • Making long-term partnership agreements with suppliers
  • Social responsibility nationally and locally
