Sustainability Reporting

Every year, UPS releases a new corporate sustainability report – the most comprehensive source of information regarding our sustainability priorities and performance.

The Road Ahead: The 2016 UPS Corporate Sustainability Report

The 2016 UPS Corporate Sustainability Report encompasses details about our sustainability impacts and challenges, strategies, key performance indicators and our newly-announced goals for 2020 and 2025. The Report is organized and presented in accordance with the GRI Standards published in 2016, established by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

The GRI Standards include two options for reporting in accordance: “Core” and “Comprehensive.” This Report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Comprehensive option. UPS has voluntarily followed GRI reporting guidelines since 2003.

This document includes data about the following:

  • Water
  • Waste
