UPS has new aggressive sustainability targets to complement the fleet with more alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles, relying increasingly on renewable energy sources. The targets, announced in the Corporate Sustainability Report for 2016, support UPS's commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from global ground operations by 12% by 2025, a goal based on a methodology Approved by the Science Based Targets initiative.

Another target set by the company is that, by 2025, 40% of the total fuel used for ground operations Comes from sources other than traditional gasoline and diesel, rising from 19.6% in 2016.

UPS uses over 8,300 global vehicles using alternative fuels and advanced technologies. The company's fleet includes electric vehicles, hybrid electric hybrids, hybrid compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), propane and light fuel-saving vehicles. In addition to using alternative vehicles, the UPS fleet uses millions of gallons of diesel from renewable sources with low carbon and renewable natural gas (GNG) every year.

The UPS vision involves an intelligent vehicle logistics network with advanced technology and facilities powered by increasingly diverse and sustainable energy sources, including solar, wind, renewable natural gas, renewable hydrogen and renewable diesel delivered through advanced energy infrastructure. UPS already implements many of these technologies in vehicles and facilities on the ground and plans to significantly increase their use of its fleets worldwide.

Since 2009, UPS has invested over 750 million dollars in vehicles using alternative fuels and advanced technologies and in global power stations.

From the traditional power of pedals and electric bicycles, to electric, hybrid, natural gas, natural gas, renewable natural gas, propane and renewable diesel, UPS puts into practice innovative solutions for sustainability worldwide.
