Sustainability Reporting

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

The 2013 UPS Corporate Sustainability Report

The 2013 UPS Corporate Sustainability Report encompasses details about our sustainability impacts and challenges, strategies, key performance indicators and future goals. This year, we were one of the first U.S. companies to transition to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 framework and report at a “Comprehensive” level, the most rigorous option available. We also conducted a new global materiality assessment to deepen our understanding of our economic, environmental and social impacts.

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.
