Earlier this month, UPS was informed by the Carbon Disclosure Project that it had received the highest score (99 out of 100) on its Global 500 Leadership Index. UPS is one of only four companies with that top score.
The Index is comprised of companies that “have displayed the most professional approach to corporate governance regarding climate change information disclosure practices. Companies are scored on their climate change disclosure, and high scores indicate good internal data management and understanding of climate change related issues affecting the company.” We are always grateful for high scores from third-parties, especially one as prestigious and credible as CDP.
In this case, the CDP score represents more than just an external accolade. It also is an achievement earned through thoughtful action on the company’s part.
