Sustainability Reporting

Every year, UPS releases a new corporate sustainability report detailing important and accurate information regarding our sustainability priorities and performance.

The 2015 UPS Corporate Sustainability Report

The 2015 UPS Corporate Sustainability Report encompasses details about our sustainability impacts and challenges, strategies, key performance indicators and future goals. The Report is organized and presented in accordance with the G4 framework established by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

The G4 framework includes two options for reporting in accordance: “Core” and “Comprehensive.” This Report fulfills the disclosure requirements for the “Comprehensive” option. UPS has voluntarily followed GRI reporting guidelines since 2002.

We’ve also created a supplementary document to report aspects and data that do not meet our threshold for materiality, but are of particular importance to select stakeholders.

This document includes data about the following:

  • Water
  • Waste
  • Compliance
