    UPS (NYSE: UPS) has once again been recognized for its leadership in the areas of sustainability and technology.

    For the third year in a row, UPS secured a top position on the CDP's global Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI). UPS ranked in the top five percent of companies measured, with a score of 99 out of 100. The CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, works with its shareholders, customers and governments to measure and disclose environmental information. UPS has been recognized for this achievement since 2008.

    The Dow Jones selected UPS for its Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, placing the organization among the top 10 percent of sustainability performers out of the 2,500 companies in the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index. Companies are selected based on a comprehensive assessment of long-term economic, environmental and social criteria, as well as industry-specific sustainability trends. This marks the ninth consecutive year that UPS has been selected for the North America Index.

    InformationWeek published its annual ranking of the top 500 innovative companies and ranked UPS #45. The ranking tracks the IT practices of the nation's most innovative IT organizations, providing an opportunity to understand and examine the business practices across core areas of operations.
