Atlanta-based UPS is promising to be carbon neutral by the year 2050 as part of its “environmental, social and governance” transformation. “Innovation is going to be the way in which we are going to solve a lot of the challenges right now in terms of making supply chains greener,” said UPS Chief of Corporate Affairs Officer Laura Lane in a radio interview. She cited the development of an electric van made entirely of composite materials that can be recycled; an e-bike that is also pedal-powered; and a “fleet scale smart technology grid” that facilitates the recharging of vehicle batteries. reporternewspapers.net
