Environmental Progress Old

Agility is committed to reducing the carbon footprint of our own operations and working with partners across our value chain to reduce our collective impact on climate change. Data management systems for water and waste are in early stages and we will provide further updates as we make progress in these areas.

Global Quality, Environment, Health, Safety & Security Policy Standards

Agility is committed to delivering consistently high standards of quality, service, and safety. We aim to achieve this through sustainable practices, operational resilience, environmental protection, robust processes, and protecting stakeholder assets.

Partnering For Progress

Agility is a founding member of the First Mover’s Coalition, launched by the World Economic Forum to scale procurement and development of net-zero technology. We are also part of the Road Freight Zero coalition, designed to advance the deployment of zero emission fleets and infrastructure by 2030.

Business in Transition

We are committed to quantifying and reducing our environmental footprint across our business. Each of our subsidiaries has a different level of impact and control over their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, as well as other environmental issues such as water and waste.

Following a period of significant change for the structure of our business, we are strengthening our data systems to enable consistent compilation of comparable data from across our most material subsidiaries, Menzies, Tristar and Agility Logistics Parks (ALP).

Our 2022 GHG emissions are not comparable to 2021 due to the ongoing improvements to our data collection and the acquisition of Menzies. We will complete a full emissions baseline in 2024 once the full integration of Menzies is completed and after Tristar and Menzies have completed at least one Scope 3 reporting cycle.

Agility Group Total GHG Emissions in 2022

Scope 1 emissions (tons CO2e)
Scope 2 emissions (tons CO2e)
To be finalised in June
Scope 3 emissions (tons CO2e)

1Emissions are reported proportional to Agility’s share of ownership; in particular, only 65% of Tristar’s total emissions are shown here. Menzies emissions are calculated proportionally to the length of ownership (five months in 2022).

Current Emissions Across Our Businesses

Total 286,456 24,786 8,726 319,968 100%

Scope 3 emissions for Menzies and Tristar are not yet included. We anticipate that Menzies and Tristar will report Scope 3 emissions later in 2023, at which point we will update and adjust these figures. ALP, GCC, Agility Corporate and our other companies are not reporting Scope 3 emissions this year except as a factor of upstream emissions from fuel and electricity consumption.

Environmental Highlights Across Our Businesses

  • Committed to carbon neutrality by 2033.
  • Part of the Mission Possible Partnership (MPP), an alliance focused on decarbonizing some of the world’s highest-emitting industries. It published a strategy for net-zero aviation by 2050.
  • Continues to electrify its fleet and equipment, adding 140+ electric units in 2022, with 100+ on order for 2023.

  • 30% of electricity used in 2022 was generated by solar power.
  • Moved to electric vehicles (EVs) for corporate offices and committed to replacing 30-40 cars with EVs by the end of 2024.

  • ALP’s Riyadh logistics park in Saudi Arabia was the first warehousing facility in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to receive EDGE Advanced certification as a green building. The construction is at least 40% more energy efficient than the national average and is a ‘zero-carbon ready’ structure. Following EDGE-certification of the Riyadh logistics park, other sites will follow.
  • The Kuwait South Village logistics project incorporates high-level specifications and world-leading standards. The development’s planned district cooling system, Kuwait’s first in the logistics industry, will reduce electricity consumption from air conditioning by more than 40% compared to traditional air-conditioning systems.

  • GCC’s comprehensive water management program ensures prioritization of water efficiency and reduced consumption where possible. The company regularly engages with suppliers, local communities and other stakeholders to implement best practice and protect water resources, and aims to set water consumption targets by early 2024.
  • Emissions are measured and tracked in real time using digital tracking software. Camp sites are powered by solar panels where possible.

  • Shipa Ecommerce is partnering with a specialist waste management firm to recycle and refurbish undelivered packages.
  • Shipa Freight is partnering with an emissions calculation platform to enable customers to understand and mitigate delivery carbon footprint.
  • Shipa Delivery is partnering with a major customer to introduce hybrid vehicles in Kuwait for last mile deliveries.
