Sustainability Reporting

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

On the Leading Edge: The 2017 UPS Corporate Sustainability Progress Report

We are pleased to present UPS’s 16th annual Corporate Sustainability Report. Continuous improvement and leadership have been hallmarks of our reporting efforts through the years. For the 2017 reporting cycle, we have introduced a new storytelling format to better meet the needs of our stakeholders and readers. This format separates stories about new initiatives and other developments from the data requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The UPS 2017 Corporate Sustainability Progress Report chronicles our 2017 performance, initiatives, and engagements across the four pillars that comprise our Committed to More™ sustainability strategy. All GRI Standards disclosures for our comprehensive level of reporting are now located directly in the 2017 UPS GRI Content Index.
