Tree plantation by FedEx Cares volunteers in Mumbai and Delhi

FedEx Cares volunteers, in collaboration with local NGOs, have successfully planted nearly 10,000 saplings in Mumbai and Delhi. These new trees will help reduce air pollution, mitigate the effects of urban heat islands and climate change, and enhance community health and wellness. These efforts are part of FedExs broader commitment to environmental stewardship.

More than just a symbolic act of environmental commitment, our initiatives reflect our dedication to India,” expressed Suvendu Choudhury, Vice President Operations, India and CE, MEISA, FedEx. “By enhancing urban landscapes, these initiatives also contribute to broader ecological efforts, with FedEx actively participating to shape a greener future for India.
