TNT reached the overall score of 92% out of a possible 100%. In addition, TNT got the highest score in each of the three dimensions—Economic, Environmental, and Social—that make up the index.
TNT achieved the best scores (100%) in the following areas: customer relationship management, fuel efficiency, codes of conduct/compliance, and risk and crisis management.

The consistency of our results demonstrates TNT’s commitment to economic, environmental, and social performance. I want to thank all TNT employees for this outstanding achievement.”
