From social commitment to sustainable transport: our responsibility

As a sustainable delivery company, we are committed to protecting and maintaining the environment to care for present and future generations.

In 2008, we launched the ThinkGreen environmental initiative with the aim of coordinating and promoting the different sustainable activities that we carry out. Among the main objectives are the journey towards sustainable transport with the reduction of emissions derived from our activity, the responsible management of the resources we have and the optimization of waste management.

We think and act responsibly and respectfully with the environment in all areas of the company: from transport planning to the opening of ecofriendly hubs / depots.


GLS implemented in the entire group a program that aims to identify and avoid risks in terms of Compliance. In addition, it was designed to protect collaboration with business partners based on mutual trust.
