UPS No. 1 Shipper on ‘Climate Counts’ Scorecard for Third Year in a Row

Atlanta, December 07, 2011

For the third year in a row, UPS (NYSE: UPS) has earned the top score in the consumer shipping sector on the annual "Climate Counts" scorecard. UPS also shared the 11th highest score across all industries alongside Sony, Nokia and AB Electrolux among 136 ranked companies.

UPS ranked No. 1 in the consumer shipping sector with a score of 80, remaining ahead of competitors Deutsche Post World Net/DHL, the U.S. Postal Service and FedEx, which ranked second, third and fourth, respectively.

Climate Counts, an organization that works to bring consumers and companies together in the fight against global climate change, 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 non-profit organization.

"This recognition is significant because Climate Counts rigorously evaluates performance rather than corporate marketing claims," said Scott Wicker, UPS’s chief sustainability officer. "The Climate Counts shopping guide provides consumers with a signpost for companies that are truly committed to environmentally-responsible business practices."

The Climate Counts ranking is just the latest in a long list of honors for environmental leadership awarded to UPS. Other recent honors include: Highest score in the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (tied with 3 others); No. 1 in the Carbon Disclosure Project S&P 500 and tied with 3 others in the Global 500; Interbrand Top 50 Best Global Green Brands, and Fortune’s Most Admired Companies list.

"UPS’s repeated and consistent top ranking in the shipping segment highlights our efforts to measure, manage and reduce our carbon footprint while offering consumers more choices that support their commitment to the environment," Wicker added.
