From the Postmaster General
Leaner, greener, faster, smarter
Good for the planet — and good for business
The United States Postal Service delivers the mail to every home and business in America. It’s a big job — and it takes a big organization to do it.
We have almost 557,000 employees, more than 213,000 vehicles and approximately 33,000 Post Offices and other facilities. Together, they form America’s most essential communications network.
This means our job isn’t over when the mail is delivered. The Postal Service also has a special responsibility to make our organization as sustainable as possible.
Our mantra is “leaner, greener, smarter, faster.” To achieve these goals, we’re adjusting the size of our workforce and delivery network, eliminating waste, reducing energy consumption and encouraging our employees and customers to conserve. When the Postal Service is more efficient, everyone benefits.
So please take a few moments to review our sustainability report. As you’ll see, the Postal Service is a big organization, and we’re working hard to reduce our impact on the planet we all share. This is good for the environment, and it’s also good for business.
