In 2023, the company introduced 150 liquefied natural gas vehicles and launched 63 intelligent driving vehicles on its line-haul routes.

With reference to the recommendations by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), J&T Express developed a climate change management system on the four aspects of governance framework, risk management, management strategy, and indicators and targets. The company uses this system to identify the risks and opportunities of climate change and takes corresponding action to support climate change mitigation efforts in an endeavor to respond and adapt to climate change.

The company has implemented global network security and privacy protection measures and continues to improve its information security and privacy protection management mechanism. This provides an all-round protection of personal information lifecycle and safeguards the security of delivery information ensuring that the private information of customers is protected through the development of network security, regular internal information security audits and information security awareness training for employees. In 2023, J&T Express obtained several authoritative information security system certifications such as the ISO 27001 and ISO 27701 among others.

Supporting employee development, building a better society together
