UPS (NYSE: $UPS) Named To Dow Jones #Sustainability World Index For Sixth Consecutive Year
UPS Recognized on DJSI North America Index for 14th Straight Year
ATLANTA - September 18, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) UPS (NYSE: UPS) was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the sixth consecutive year and the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index for the 14th straight year. The recognition comes as UPS continues to work toward its ambitious sustainability goals to add more alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles to its fleet while increasing its reliance on renewable energy sources.
UPS's inclusion on these highly-regarded indices reflects its position in the top 10 percent of sustainability performers among the 2,500 largest companies tracked in the S&P Global Broad Market Index.
"It's an honor to be recognized by DJSI for our sustainability efforts," said Tamara Barker, UPS chief sustainability officer and vice president of environmental affairs. "We are proud of the work we have done this year to electrify our fleet and improve the environment as well as the communities we serve worldwide. And, we look forward to continuing our efforts."
Companies are selected for inclusion on DJSI based on an in-depth analysis of economic, environmental and social factors with an emphasis on long-term shareholder value. Created in 1999, the DJSI was the first global index to provide benchmarks for measuring corporate sustainability. The use of primary research, rules-based methodology and focus on best-in-class companies by DJSI make these indices valuable tools for examining leading sustainability-driven companies around the globe.
UPS has been honored with several other distinctions this year, including:
- Recognized as the number one company in the delivery industry on Fortune's Most Admired Companies list
- Chosen by CR Magazine as one of "100 Best Corporate Citizens" for the ninth consecutive year.
- Named to the Civic 50 for the fifth time.
