UPS Sustainability Initiatives
As sustainability continues to rise in importance as a critical global business issue, UPS is committed to stepping up its disclosure, actions and goals to match these growing expectations.
As one of the world's largest private logistics organizations and a constant leader in global supply chain management, UPS tries to uphold a mission to simultaneously increase efficiency and reduce environmental impact of global commerce. We try to achieve this balance of sustainability by combining shipping activities of worldwide customers into a single, highly efficient logistics network.
UPS has been a worldwide logistics and supply chain innovator for more than a century, and we've continued to maintain innovation at a steady clip. As recently as 2010, UPS expanded carbon neutral service to 36 countries, and we continue to add more countries to the total each year. Our carbon neutral service enables customers to mitigate the carbon impact of their shipments, either on demand with individual shipments or as a standard level of service, easily and inexpensively. UPS has also been named the Official Logistics and Express Delivery Supporter of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and our goal is to help make the London Games the greenest ever.
