MEMPHIS, TN – FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., said it is committed to safeguarding biodiversity in India, a country that hosts 7-8 percent of all recorded species worldwide. The company has launched a series of environmental community initiatives across the nation, including trash collection, cleanups, recycling, and tree planting.

As part of these efforts, FedEx has made charitable donations totaling two million dollars and its team members in India have contributed hundreds of volunteer hours. These initiatives are part of a broader global effort by the company to strengthen urban ecosystems.

FedEx’s initiatives in India employ a collective impact model, collaborating with non-profits, government stakeholders, community members, FedEx Cares volunteers, and local ‘Safai sathi’s’ to tackle beach pollution in Mumbai. Over the past month alone, these joint efforts have resulted in the collection of more than 18 tons of waste, with over 12 tons being recycled, supporting the Municipal Corporation’s objectives to restore the city’s coastlines and promote responsible waste management, the company said.

In addition to cleanup activities, the project educates beachgoers about biodiversity and engages community volunteers in discussions on the ecological importance of their contributions. FedEx has also organized immersive shore walk sessions facilitated by local nonprofits to enhance understanding of the area’s unique coastal ecosystems and encourage proactive conservation efforts.

FedEx’s commitment to environmental stewardship extends to other major cities such as Delhi, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad, where FedEx Cares volunteers have participated in mural painting projects. These artistic initiatives aim to raise awareness and educate students and the broader community about crucial environmental concepts.
