TNT Post has launched a corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme to bring its UK service in line with its global operations.
The mail service, which operates in 62 countries and employs more than 128,000 people, said it hoped to improve its social and environmental impact on the communities in which it operates.
The programme includes a new mobile phone initiative to enable staff to donate to the United Nations World Food Programme by text, a carbon omission reduction scheme and a new workplace safety standard.
Simon Dolph, head of marketing and communication at TNT, said: “Developing a CSR programme for our UK business is an important step forward for TNT Post. Having built up an established reputation as leading challenger to Royal Mail in the postal market, we are keen to build on our parent’s track record in CSR and instil these values in our UK operations.”
