Sustainable shipping in a fair social environment: Our responsibility

As a European and globally operating parcel service provider, GLS shoulders its responsibility for the environment and society by moving towards sustainable shipping. We actively support people and the protection of the environment through various initiatives and campaigns that promote responsible growth.

For us, sustainability means, among other things, continuously moving towards sustainable and emission-free transport. We also consider ourselves responsible for society and people, which is why we are also committed to our customers, employees and transport partners.

ThinkGreen: Our commitment to the environment

As a parcel delivery company, we have developed the ThinkGreen programme with the aim of protecting the surroundings in which we carry out our logistics and parcel transport activities.


ThinksSocial: Commitment to society and our environment

Our commitment to society is reflected in the ThinkSocial programme. This programme groups together the actions that we develop with third parties and whose objective is to create and maintain a fair social environment.
