FedEx Volunteers Lead Beach Clean-Up

FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, marked its 40th anniversary by partnering with the Gawad Kalinga Community Development Foundation for a beach clean-up activity in Barangay Taltal, Masinloc, Zambales.

In line with its commitment to corporate social responsibility, over 100 FedEx volunteers participated in the clean-up, collecting approximately 588 kilograms of trash. This initiative is part of FedEx’s broader goal to support environmental sustainability and coincides with April Global Volunteer Month. During this month, FedEx encourages its team members to engage in volunteer activities that promote societal and environmental well-being.

FedEx donated PHP 1 million to Gawad Kalinga to support educational workshops in Zambales and Metro Manila. These workshops aim to empower local communities to adopt sustainable practices. Volunteers provided insights on the impact of climate change on coastal areas, the importance of preventing plastic pollution on marine life, and sustainable waste management. Additionally, FedEx donated recycling bins to local authorities and community leaders to promote recycling and upcycling.

“At FedEx, team members are empowered to support societal needs and forge meaningful connections with the community. This inspires them to make a positive impact and shape a brighter and more sustainable future,” said Maribeth Espinosa, Managing Director of FedEx Express Philippines. “We remain committed to leveraging our resources and expertise to connect people and possibilities in responsible and resourceful ways while protecting our environment.”

This program complements FedEx’s enterprise sustainability goals, including its aim to achieve carbon-neutral operations by 2040. FedEx plans to advance its environmental objectives through innovation, research, and empowering communities to act sustainably.
