Twenty one postal operators and companies across the world, including the U.S. Postal Service, have committed to reduce carbon emissions by 20 percent in the next 10 years, according to industry group International Post Corporation.

The move reflects the environmental measures many U.S. government agencies have already pledged, such as the Department of Defense and Department of Energy.

The postal services will work under IPC“™s Environmental Measurement and Monitoring System standards as part of the measure, which includes employee engagement, managing value chains, and encouraging suppliers to produce Cradle to Cradle Certified environmentally friendly products.

“The U.S. Postal Service continues to build on our long history of green innovation, and we’re proud to work with our global postal partners to reduce the size of our industry’s carbon footprint,” said Sam Pulcrano, vice president of sustainability. “Collectively, the 21 EMMS participating posts manage more than 100,000 facilities, 600,000 vehicles, and deliver more than 80 percent of the world’s mail. Our joint effort to reduce CO2 emissions will have a major positive effect on the environment.”
