23-05-2019

The IPC Annual Conference 2019 will take place in Bonn, Germany on 23-24 May 2019 and will focus on postal sector sustainability and the challenge for the next ten years.

The rapid increase in e-commerce and continued urbanisation means that delivery logistics will put additional pressure on the urban infrastructure and potentially increase carbon emissions.

How can posts, through their ubiquitous physical network, contribute to a sustainable delivery model? How can innovative delivery methods play a role in the development of sustainable logistics? How well has the postal sector performed in sustainability over the last ten years? What will be the new challenges, measurements and targets that will shape the sustainability programme for the next ten years? What will be the requirements of stakeholders for future postal sector sustainability initiatives?

 

Speakers and attendees

Dr Richard Hewston, Principal Consultant, Environment and Climate Change, Verisk Maplecroft will present together with Marc Daelman, Partner, PwC Belgium the achievements of the IPC postal sector sustainability programme and will discuss its alignment with some selected UN Sustainable Development Goals.
