Environmental leadership and sustainability-oriented innovation
As a company in the transportation solutions and logistics business, APS operations can have a significant impact on the environment, including contributing to climate change. Protecting the environment (and addressing climate change) has become one of the most important global issues, and is an emerging issue in many emerging economies including those in the Middle East. The issue is thus very relevant to our business.
We take a precautionary approach to environmental challenges, emphasizing respect for the environment. All employees and leaders are responsible for pollution prevention and for compliance with applicable environmental laws and regulations in the course of making business decisions.
But far beyond compliance, we aim to aggressively reduce our environmental impact and we aim to be a carbon-neutral company in the shortest feasible time. We want the APS brand to be recognized globally as closely associated with environmental leadership, as we believe this will be a crucial competitive advantage. We aim to encourage and integrate new technologies and offer new types of ‘green’ services that will dramatically accelerate the reduction in our environmental impacts. Every employee and leader is responsible for contributing to our performance improvements in this field, including ensuring the effectiveness and continuous improvement of any environmental management systems implemented by the company.
Examples of priority areas for improving our environmental performance include reducing the carbon dioxide emissions and other harmful emissions from our fleet of vehicles, being more efficient in the use of environmental resources such as energy, water, and paper, and reducing our impact on traffic and congestion in key markets.
