Sustainable Facilities

UPS is investing in cutting-edge technology at our facilities that will allow us to handle heightened package volumes more efficiently than ever. This upgraded capacity will increase our energy usage, which is why we are investing in additional solar energy projects and exploring other ways to ensure that our growth is environmentally sustainable. We are working toward goals to reduce GHG emissions associated with our ground operations and source more electricity from renewables.

We evaluate all new construction projects for green-building rating system implementation. UPS currently has 18 facilities that have received a green-building certification, including U.S. Green Building Council LEED, Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology (BREEAM), and the Green Globes Standard.
