    UPS Sets New Automotive Goal to Improve Fuel Efficiency by 20 Percent-UPS

    UPS (NYSE:UPS) has set a new automotive goal to improve the miles per gallon (MPG) performance of its entire U.S. package delivery fleet by 20 percent between 2000 and 2020.
    The goal was announced today as UPS released the latest annual update of its corporate Sustainability Report.

    The new goal builds on gains UPS already has made by increasing its U.S. MPG 10% between 2000 and 2009 and applies to a U.S. ground fleet of 60,000 vehicles.

    "Our automotive efficiencies over the last decade show a genuine commitment to conserving fuel and decreasing the emissions associated with the packages we deliver," said Bob Stoffel, UPS senior vice president and the executive responsible for UPS's sustainability program. "This new goal for the next decade is an important milestone in UPS's continuing dedication to finding and using new technology and processes that help us meet our customers' needs in a sustainable way."
