Social, ecological and economic


As a leading European parcel logistics provider, the GLS Group is fully
aware of its special responsibility to the environment and to society.

GLS understands sustainability as a holistic concept – including ecological
as well as social and economic aspects of social responsibility.

This means providing excellence in parcel logistics for customers and
job-security for employees, both going hand in hand. With its service GLS
also contributes to mobility and the reliable supply of goods, which are the
backbone of economy.

It is the Group’s objective to achieve sustainable economic success in
accordance with the protection of the environment for future generations.
GLS also considers itself committed to the society in and for which it operates.

In its sustainability report GLS provides information on developments in the financial years 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 – including key figures from its environmental balance and examples of its social commitment across Europe.
