Every year Climate Counts, an environmental advocacy group, publishes its rankings on which companies are positively addressing climate change. For the second year, UPS tops the list for consumer shipping. The timing couldn’t be better for our customers who care about the environment. It’s the holiday season and shopping and shipping is in full force.
I like Climate Counts because it’s got a comprehensive way of evaluating companies (22 criteria) and it makes it easy to make green choices. Not just shipping companies, but also companies that may be the source for gifts over these last weeks of frantic shopping. On their website, you can view companies by sector (i.e. appliances, apparel, electronics), by brands, or even by product type (coffee, toys). To be extra convenient, you can download the mobile app and take it with your shopping. How green is that! No paper!
As a UPSer, I’m proud of this and all the other accolades that we have gotten this year for our sustainability efforts. Climate Counts Green Guide helps me support other climate-minded companies too!
