A Sustainability Journey

In Australia, the transport sector makes up 19% of emissions, with the projection to become the largest producer of emissions by 2030. (Source).

Fortunately, Team Global Express – formally known as Toll Global Express – has committed to tackling decarbonisation and improving sustainable development  for the entire business.

With an ambitious goal of becoming the most sustainable transport and logistics solutions provider across Australia and New Zealand, Team Global Express is transforming their operations for the better under Heather’s leadership.

In this episode, Kiarne sits down with Team Global Express ESG Director, Heather Bone to unpack the state of the industry, tackling tough conversations on the available infrastructure, higher costs and diversifying fuel sources all relevant to shaping a more sustainable logistics.

With decarbonisation being just the tip of the iceberg, Heather and Kiarne discuss what it means to be thrust into an ESG role where the risks seem great and the challenges never-ending. From waste management, packaging, consolidation, and recycling, education and supporting the social fabric of Australia, there are innumerable opportunities for improvement and Team Global Express is driving innovation to meet each one.

Heather shares how great leadership from the c-suite and the board has empowered the team to take ownership at every level.
