FedEx scope emissions measure direct emissions from our fleet and facilities as well as indirect emissions from sources like feeder aircraft.  As we continue to grow revenue, our aim is to lessen our impact on the environment. In FY11, revenue grew by 13% yet scope 1 emissions only grew by 4% and scope 2 emissions decreased slightly – all thanks to efficiency efforts and fleet upgrades.
