Environmental protection & demographic change in Europe
In 2013, the social partners in the European Social Dialogue Committee for the Postal Sector signed the “CSR Joint Conclusions on the Environment”. We have worked on this environmental statement with our European social partners and contributed our knowledge of designing environmentally friendly logistics processes in the postal sector. The joint environmental conclusions were signed in the presence of prominent representatives of the European Commission, the PostEurop employer’s association and the global union federation UNI (UNI Europa Post & Logistics).
Starting in 2014, the European Social Dialogue Committee for the Postal Sector will launch a project to address the issue of “demographic challenges in the postal sector”. The project is funded by the European Commission. In cooperation with our European social partners, we intend to use our experience with measures aimed at shaping demographic change and our partial retirement model in particular (“Generations Pact”) to help benefit the project.
