Package delivery giant UPS announced a new, company-wide set of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) targets June 9. The company pledges to be carbon neutral across scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions in its global operations by 2050.

According to Carbon Trust, scope 1 emissions are direct emissions from owned or controlled sources. Scope 2 emissions are those that are indirect from the generation of purchased electricity, steam, heating and cooling consumed by the reporting company. Scope 3 emissions include all other indirect emissions that occur in a company’s value chain.

UPS’s interim 2035 environmental sustainability targets include:

  • Cutting in half CO2 per package delivered for its global small-package operations, using 2020 as a base year

  • 100 percent of company facilities powered by renewable electricity

  • 30 percent of the fuel used in its global air fleet to be sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
