UPS Corporate Sustainability Priorities

In 2011, we established a set of 15 corporate priorities for addressing sustainability issues and opportunities across our entire enterprise. We made progress with all of these priorities in 2012. Most notably, we engaged employees, international teams, and outside stakeholders more fully in our sustainability priorities and programs, and also increased our policy engagement in areas of our expertise and concern. We also made progress in quantifying outcomes from philanthropic engagements, and committed to support further standardization of international sustainability reporting.
