According to an April 22, 2019, article on postaltimes.com, the Postal Service continues to reduce the amount of energy it uses per square foot by more than 30 percent since 2003. The organization is on track to continue cutting energy usage during the next decade, new projections show.
The figures are included in this year’s Annual Sustainability Report, which was published April 22.
The report also details the Postal Service’s progress in other areas, including greenhouse gas emissions and water usage. The organization’s success in these areas is attributed to its efforts to promote conservation throughout its network.
“Across the nation, USPS employees are doing their part to help us reduce energy and water usage, cut greenhouse gas emissions, increase recycling and become a more sustainable, efficient organization,” said Chief Sustainability Officer Tom Day.
