USPS Sustainability Scorecard

The U.S. Postal Service shares performance data via the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Scorecard. This is a federal sustainability performance score card system to track and report performance based on Executive Order 13693 – Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade. We are a self-supporting, independent establishment of the Executive Branch and as a result, we are not required to meet the sustainability goals in Executive Order 13693. Yet, whenever possible, we voluntarily set specific goals and adopt internally-binding policies that seek to meet requirements applicable to federal agencies.

Reduce Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2025.

Reduce Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions 30% by 2025.

Reduce energy intensity 25% by 2025.

Reduce potable water intensity 36% by 2025.

The U.S. Postal Service is committed to being a sustainability leader. Our Annual Sustainability Report has more information on our sustainability performance.
