"We do the right thing the right way"

Our core value statement is the north star we use in our interactions with our clients, business partners, employees and communities.

Environmental Stewardship

At Pitney Bowes, we’re working towards creating a sustainable future by taking a hard look at how we impact the environment today. We consider the actual and potential effects of our operations on the environment, with a particular focus on climate-related risks and sustainability. We’re mindful of these factors as we develop, modify and deliver our products and services. To provide a discipline and consistency to these practices across our organization, we’re guided by a cross-functional environmental sustainability committee. This committee focuses on sharing industry best practices, enabling the exchange of new ideas, insights and information throughout the company. In addition, the committee continuously reviews our company strategy, products and operations through the lens of environmental sustainability.


How we plan to achieve carbon neutrality in our operations by 2040 and in our value chain by 2050:

• Efficient use of energy in our sites and fleet.

• Increased use of renewable energy.

• Offset of remaining carbon emissions.

• Better understanding of the sustainability practices of our suppliers.

• Increased accuracy of suppliers’ CO2 reporting.

• Partner with suppliers engaged in sustainable practice.

Driving Green

We’re on a roll for driving green. We’ve installed telematics to provide accurate, real-time operational and sustainability data. Plus, our over-the-road sleeper trucks have auxiliary power units to minimize unnecessary fuel consumption due to idling.

In several European countries our team is testing hybrid and fully electric vehicles. We strive to understand how this technology can support the specific operational requirements of our colleagues who are on the road most of the time to meet clients’ needs—driving either their own small passenger vehicles or Pitney Bowes company cars.
