As we see change in our financial and environmental climates, more companies are giving more thought to sustainable business practices.
At UPS, we make a daily effort to work more efficiently, more sustainably. We believe in designing the best use of all our resources--human, financial, product, transportation--and providing the strongest organization possible for our community, locally and globally.
Sustainable Efficiencies Reduce Your Carbon Footprint--and Save Money
We're committed to making our company and our customers more efficient and
making sure those efficiencies are repeatable.
One way we do that is minimizing the miles we drive and the minutes spent
idling. This helps us maximize the number of pickups and deliveries we make with
every gallon of fuel we use.
On a larger scale, our integrated service network--express, ground, domestic,
international, commercial, and residential--allows for better mode optimization
as we can shift transportation services and speeds to fit individual needs.
Our entire global network is designed and managed with the same philosophy.
Our sorting facilities and transport hubs are strategically placed and connected
by road, rail, and air to major population centers.
On a daily basis, our optimized network moves goods for our customers at a
level of efficiency they could not otherwise achieve by themselves--saving
carbon and money, too.
