FedEx has said it intends to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from its aircraft fleet by 20 per cent by 2020. It said it already has reduced CO2 emissions by 3.7 per cent per ATM since 2005. Key to the efficiency gains will be the replacement of its 90 727Fs with at least 87 757-200 converted freighters by 2016. The 757s will reduce “fuel consumption up to 36 per cent while providing 20 per cent more payload capacity,” the group said. “FedEx is also reducing the amount of fuel we use when a plane is at the gate by using ground power instead of aircraft power, saving almost one million gallons of fuel per month.”
