Maximize Effectiveness While Minimizing Impact

Emission Standard Compliance

Comply with Executive Order 13514 and meet Scope 3 goals for you and your customers with our network efficiencies and verified third-party analysis of your shipping carbon footprint. We can help you measure and mitigate carbon emissions each time you ship, and our reporting provides the transparency you require. 

Technology to Reduce Impact

When you ship with UPS, you can be confident that we'll use the most energy- and cost-efficient means available to meet your needs. We use telematics—data-driven innovation—to reduce idling time and make our routing more efficient. That means we're using less fuel, and driving fewer miles. And by using intermodal shifting, we're reducing energy intensity and getting your shipment where it needs to be on time.

We also have one of the largest and most diverse alternative fuel and advanced technology fleets in the industry. Each of the vehicles in our fleet is maintained so that they stay in prime condition, minimizing their environmental impact.

Time-and Earth-Saving Solutions

Every time you use UPS's integrated service network, you're not only saving time, you're saving resources. And you can offset the climate impact of your shipping and reduce your carbon footprint with sustainable packaging solutions and paperless services.
