Company Recognized for Beating Its Climate Goal
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Center for Corporate Climate Leadership recognized UPS® (NYSE: UPS) with one of its Climate Leadership Awards for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The awards acknowledge the voluntary work organizations do to build resilience to climate change.
