UPS named on Forbes JUST 100 list

US logistics giant UPS has been named for the fifth consecutive year on the Forbes JUST Capital’s annual 100 list for its commitment to serving its workers, customers, communities, the environment and shareholders. It also was named #1 on the transportation categories for community, customers and shareholders.

The Forbes JUST 100 assesses US companies that outperform on issues that matter most to the US public. This year the criteria for making the list included paying a fair wage, upholding human rights across the supply chain, investing in worker training, acting ethically and with integrity, cultivating a diverse and inclusive workplace, protecting worker health and safety, providing good benefits and work-life balance and more.

“We are thrilled to be named one of America’s most JUST companies,” said Carol B. Tomé, UPS Chief Executive Officer. “UPS is committed to creating a more sustainable company – and world – by being customer first, people led and innovation driven. More than 528,000 UPSers work hard every day to move our world forward by delivering what matters.”

“Now more than ever, business leaders have the chance to spark lasting systemic change within their companies and across society,” said Forbes Senior Editor Steven Bertoni. “The companies in this year’s JUST 100 show that we can face the twin tragedies of the COVID-19 pandemic and racial inequality and continue to improve our actions and refocus our missions to do better, and be better, for all stakeholders.”
