Industry issues such as leadership, ethics, worker well-being, job creation, local community support, customer treatment and environmental impact are some examples of what “JUST 100” annual list identifies for companies that make the cut. For the third year in a row, UPS has made the list and was recognized as a leader within the transportation industry.
“We are humbled to be named one of America’s most JUST companies for the third year in a row,” said Tamara Barker, UPS’s chief sustainability officer and vice president of environmental affairs. “UPS and its team remain devoted to our sustainability and charitable goals that help us serve our communities and work toward a greater good.”
The results come from a comprehensive survey conducted on the country’s top 1,000 publicly-traded and the public attitudes sparked from corporate patterns.
Among the three consecutive recognitions from Forbes, UPS received four additional company acknowledgements from the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, CR Magazine, Civic 50 list, and Barron’s inaugural list for the 100 Most Sustainable Companies, all in the same year.
UPS is projecting the successful completion of 20 million volunteer hours by 2020, as originally planned. Additionally, the company is an active participant in reducing GHG emissions as they strive towards a 12 percent decrease by 2025 for global ground operations.
