UPS sustainable commitment sees the US’ largest natural gas purchase

No primary category set

The UPS sustainable commitment saw the largest natural gas purchase in the US in an effort to reduce the absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (12%) their ground fleet by 2025.

UPS announced the agreement with Clean Energy Fuels Corp to purchased 170 million gallon equivalents of renewable natural gas (RNG). This is the largest commitment for use of RNG yet by any company in the United States. Its range is of 22.5 – 25 million gallon equivalents per year.

UPS has used more than 28 million gallons of RNG in their logistics network since 2014. This means the company will now be using nearly as much RNG in one year as it has used over the past five years combined. RNG is a vital part of UPS’s strategy to increase alternative fuel consumption to be 40% of total ground fuel purchases by 2025.

The move from diesel fuel to RNG will see UPS vehicle fueling 18 company-owned and operated natural gas stations across 12 US states. This will also see a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 1,074,000 metric tons of GHG over the time of the agreement. It’s equivalent to 17,000,000 trees, removing 228,000 cars off the road or recycling 374,000 tons of waste.
