The US Postal Service (USPS) has outlined an ambitious plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance sustainability measures across its operations.

The initiative, unveiled on Tuesday, encompasses strategies ranging from transitioning parcel transportation from air to ground to increasing the adoption of electric vehicles and streamlining delivery routes.

The new sustainability targets set by USPS for fiscal year 2030 are structured around three main pillars: climate action, the circular economy, and environmental awareness.

In terms of climate action, USPS plans to transition freight transportation from air to ground, optimize delivery routes, and procure vehicles with reduced or zero emissions.

The organization aims to achieve a 40% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions and a 20% reduction in Scope 3 emissions by 2030.
