Climate Registry awards USPS gold status recognition for action on greenhouse gas emissions
USPS was awarded Gold status by The Climate Registry for its leadership in reducing GHG emissions by more than 5 percent. The Postal Service is among the first of the Registry’s over 400 members and the first government agency to achieve the recognition.
“Winning this Climate Registered Gold Award exemplifies the Postal Service’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gases. Our sustainability efforts continue to be excellent examples of USPS as an environmentally responsible organization. Our call to action is to be leaner, greener, faster and smarter,” said Postmaster General Pat Donahoe.
“We’re doing our best to create a culture of conservation throughout USPS. Our work to improve the environment demonstrates leadership in the adoption of sustainable business practices by employees, customers, suppliers, the mailing industry and federal government peers,” Day said.
The Climate Registry is a nonprofit collaboration among North American states, provinces, territories and native sovereign nations, which sets consistent and transparent standards to calculate, verify and publicly report GHG emissions in a single registry.
