GLOBAL ROAD SAFETY INITIATIVE:
Advocating for Safer Roads for All
UPS is now passing the baton of safety beyond the reaches of our company. At the World Economic Forum (WEF) in 2019, UPS joined the Global Road Safety Initiative, designed to improve global road safety across a broad spectrum of issues, including driver training, pedestrian safety, and two-wheeler helmet use, in collaboration with WEF and the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile. The partnership will advocate for road safety legislation, improved data collection, and safer vehicles and infrastructure. For example, in India, where 10 percent of the world’s road traffic fatalities occur, support from UPS and The UPS Foundation will provide helmets for youth in New Delhi, as well as other road safety programming and expertise sharing. The initiative forms a new cornerstone in UPS’s ongoing focus on all areas of road safety.
