USPS event highlights sustainability efforts

More than 10,000 vehicles in the Postal Service’s next-generation fleet will be battery-electric powered.

The Postal Service recently hosted its annual Sustainability Symposium, a three-day virtual conference that highlighted an array of sustainability efforts.

The June 14-16 event included presentations from industry executives, federal government officials and representatives from several USPS departments, including Legal, Government Relations, Supply Management and the team overseeing the next-generation delivery vehicle program.

Speakers included Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, who shared information on the Postal Service’s 10-year Delivering for America plan to return the organization to financial sustainability and achieve service excellence.

Additionally, Supply Management Vice President Mark Guilfoil highlighted the importance of ensuring a sustainable supply chain.

Emerging technology trends, the Postal Service’s next-generation delivery vehicle program and methods for improving air quality were among the other topics discussed.

“The Sustainability Symposium provides an opportunity for the Postal Service to collaborate with our industry peers and suppliers to ensure we continue to be a good neighbor in all the communities we serve,” said Jennifer Beiro-Réveillé, Environmental Affairs and Corporate Sustainability senior director. “Together, we will continue our work to put our stamp on a greener tomorrow.”
