UPS Receives Perfect Score from Carbon Disclosure Project
UPS earned a top ranking on the Carbon Disclosure Project’s (CDP) S&P disclosure leadership index for the fifth consecutive year for its commitment to transparency, its corporate governance regarding climate change, and the manner in which it tracks and discloses its impact on the environment.
UPS received a perfect score of 100 from the CDP for the second straight year. The CDP, which annually surveys the carbon disclosure practices of companies on Standard & Poor’s (S&P) 500 Index in North America, has included UPS on its “Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index” (CDLI) of the Top 50 S&P 500 companies for the last six years.
“We are proud to be recognized for our efforts to address climate change,” said Rhonda Clark, chief sustainability officer at UPS and vice president of environmental affairs. “UPS will continue to seek out new ways to reduce our environmental impact, and help transform transportation and the communities we serve globally.”
One of UPS’s top sustainability goals is to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation relative to its shipping volume. Earlier this year UPS joined the White House’s American Business Act on Climate Pledge, committing to a 20 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 2020. And, UPS has already achieved more than half of its goal to have its alternative fuel and advanced technology fleet drive 1 billion miles by the end of 2017.
