UPS doubles carbon intensity goal for 2020

by Canadian Shipper

ATLANTA, Ga.– UPS released its 12th annual Sustainability Report announcing that in addition to reducing overall carbon emissions in 2013, the company also met its 2016 goal of reducing its air and ground fleet’s carbon intensity by 10 percent three years early.

The company has therefore set a new goal to achieve a 20 percent reduction in carbon intensity from transportation by 2020, said UPS. 

The report also highlights the continued achievement of the company’s greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals, as well as the measureable impact of its humanitarian initiatives.

“As a global logistics company dependent on vehicles and fuel to move nearly 17 million packages and documents a day, sustainability and growth are inextricably linked,” said Scott Davis, UPS chairman and chief executive officer. “Our ability to grow our global shipping volumes and reduce total carbon emissions should be a signal to business that it is possible to do more for the environment while also serving more customers and adding more value.”

The complete report is available at the company’s new sustainability website ups.com/sustainability.
