NGVAmerica members Waste Management and UPS announced they earned an ‘A’ grade this year from the environmental non-profit CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) for the depth and quality of climate change data it discloses to investors and the global marketplace.
CDP’s 2018 Climate A-List places Waste Management and UPS among a competitive group of companies from around the world identified as leaders in their efforts to combat climate change. While nearly 7,000 businesses disclosed their environmental performance on climate change through the CDP this year, only 127 earned an A rating. The rating acknowledges the company’s actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop a low-carbon economy in the past CDP reporting year.
“We are honored to be recognized among this vanguard of companies taking strategic action to preserve our environment,” says Jim Fish, the president and chief executive officer of Waste Management. “Our commitment to annual disclosure of our carbon footprint is key to our work with employees and customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in ways that benefit both the environment and the economy.”
“It’s rewarding to see UPS’s efforts to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop the low-carbon economy being recognized,” said Tamara Barker, chief sustainability officer at UPS and vice president of environmental affairs. “UPS will continue to look for ways to lessen its environmental impacts as it’s important for companies to step up to do their part.”
NGVAmerica is proud of UPS and Waste Management for their incredible efforts for positive climate impact. Their growing fleets of NGVs – increasingly fueled by carbon-neutral or even negative RNG – makes them both global leaders on combatting climate change.
