For the second year running, UPS has earned the top score in the consumer shipping sector on the annual “Climate Counts” scorecard. UPS also received the 9th highest score across all industries among the 143 ranked companies.
Climate Counts ranks the world’s largest companies based on 22 criteria that focus on measuring and reducing climate impact, corporate support of public policy initiatives on climate change and openness and transparency in reporting. Climate Counts issues a shopping guide to help consumers “support companies that take climate change seriously and avoid those that don’t,” according to the nonprofit organization’s website.
“Consumers want to invest in, and buy from, companies that are environmental leaders,” says Bob Stoffel, UPS senior vice president of supply chain, strategy, engineering and sustainability. “The Climate Counts scorecard helps consumers find those leaders. UPS’s top ranking validates our commitment to credibly report and minimize our environmental impact.”
