Diversity and Inclusion

At XPO, we take pride in having a culture that welcomes women, people of color, LGBT individuals and those who are differently abled. In this way, we create respectful workplaces with a diversity of talents and perspectives.

 

In addition, we are moving forward on gender equity through progressive workplace initiatives, active recruiting of women in all roles and internal promotions. Our female executives and managers serve as role models in our organization.

 

Our industry is one in which women have typically been underrepresented. That’s why we’re proud to report on progress being made on increasing the numbers of women in our workforce and in closing the gender pay gap. We welcome the government’s initiatives in this important area of public policy. Download our gender pay gap report.

We believe it is imperative that our company reflect the diverse makeup of the customers and communities we serve. Our focus on diversity is evident in our Values and our Code of Business Ethics, which specifically define XPO as being respectful and non-discriminatory. Our commitment, however, goes beyond just saying the right things. It is about doing the right things. Results will always matter to us, and they matter the most when they come from behavior that is fair, respectful, lawful and honest.

 

Beyond our operations, our company is a strong proponent of supplier diversity. We make contracting and procurement opportunities available to businesses owned by women, minorities, veterans and members of the LGBT community, as well as those owned by, or operated in support of, differently abled individuals.

Sustainability

Our definition of corporate social responsibility includes the economic, environmental and social aspects of XPO as a sustainable business. It encompasses the hundreds of thousands of individuals we touch — our employees, customers, investors, suppliers and the communities where we operate. When we undertake initiatives that transform supply chains for the better, we also reinforce XPO as a responsible brand.

As part of our commitment, we operate our business in a manner that demonstrates a high regard for the environment. Our approach is one of continuous improvement based on innovation.

We promote environmental sustainability in our operations for two reasons. First, it’s good business and the right thing to do. And second, it’s important to many of our stakeholders that we participate in the transition to a low carbon economy. We collaborate with customers to create action plans that reduce the emissions related to their supply chains through route optimization, load consolidation and process automation.
