The rapid increase in e-commerce and the continued urbanisation means that delivery logistics will put additional pressure on urban infrastructure and potentially increase carbon emissions. How can posts, through their ubiquitous physical network, contribute to a sustainable delivery model? How can innovative delivery methods play a role in the development of sustainable logistics? How well has the postal sector performed in sustainability over the last yen years? What will be the new challenges, measurements and targets that will shape the sustainability programme for the next ten years? What will be the requirements of stakeholders for future postal sector sustainability initiatives?
