The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Green Power Partnership recently recognized FedEx Office (formerly FedEx Kinko's), a global provider of document solutions and business services, for the company's purchase of more than 34 million kilowatt-hours of green power annually to meet approximately 14 percent of its total annual U.S. electricity needs with renewable energy. Fedex Office ranks first on the EPA Top 20 Printers List of the largest green power purchasers in the commercial printing business.
FedEx Office's green power purchases are part of a broader initiative by FedEx Corp. to minimize its impact on the environment. For example, in 2010 FedEx Express plans to open its largest solar-powered hub to date in Cologne, Germany, which will include a 1.4-megawatt solar power system. By 2020, FedEx plans to reduce carbon dioxide emissions intensity from its FedEx Express aircraft fleet by 20 percent and improve the fuel efficiency of its FedEx Express vehicle fleet by 20 percent.
