Keep Us Posted on Delivering Social Value

The postal industry is experiencing a transformational shift, caused by rapid globalization, the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and the immense growth of e-commerce. Postal companies provide an indispensable service to society each day. However, with home parcel delivery growing by 16.5% in 2020, their impact on society and the environment also increased significantly. Moreover, the UN estimated that more than 70% of the world’s population will live in densely populated areas by 2050. Increasing demand for freight transport will require effectively managing these impacts, to turn them from risks into opportunities.

Even though the surge for consolidation of ESG ratings further accelerated in 2020, companies are still stating to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of ESG information requests they receive from capital markets. And as more than $1tn in total assets under management in funds are now abiding by ESG principles, investors’ needs for credible ESG information are not likely to slow down.
