Sustainability Is a Key to Long-Term Success

Whether volunteering, recycling or cutting the miles we fly and drive, UPS employees around the world make sustainability part of their every day. Scott Wicker, Chief Sustainability Officer, explains what sustainability means to UPS and how businesses can benefit from sustainable practices.

For UPS, sustainability means social, environmental and economic responsibility. As a company, UPS encourages employees to participate in their communities, with the belief that talent and resources are gifts that are meant to be shared with the world. In 2010, UPS employees contributed more than 1.2 million volunteer hours to non-profit organizations across the globe.

Efficient, responsible logistics is part of a sustainable world. UPS uses this strategy as a guide when providing solutions for businesses. What’s more, UPS offers services, such as carbon neutral shipping, that allow businesses to incorporate responsible practices into their own operations.

For UPS, constant innovation in sustainability is company practice. UPS believes that industry-specific, responsible approaches to logistics and shipping operations provide customers long-term solutions that are more efficient, better for communities and good for business in the long run.
