Tell UPS to lead the way on oil savings solutions and drop their support for Big Oil’s front group.
As one of the nation’s largest delivery companies—with more than 96,000 vehicles in its fleet—United Parcel Service (UPS) is making a difference in reducing oil use by improving the efficiency of its trucks. Yet UPS continues to support Fueling California, an oil-industry funded effort to derail California’s clean fuels policy.
California’s policies serve as a model for reduced oil use across the nation—encouraging reductions in global warming emissions for every gallon of fuel used, helping ensure that less fuel is burned for each mile driven, and guiding the development of “smart” cities that allow people to drive less.
The oil industry is doing everything it can to slow down a transition to cleaner fuels in an effort to protect their bottom line, and they’re betting they can fool Americans by hiding behind companies like UPS. UPS shouldn’t tarnish its fuel-efficient image by being a member of Fueling California.
UPS needs to hear from citizens like you who support companies that take reducing their oil use seriously. Tell UPS to live up to its reputation as a fuel-efficient leader and stop supporting efforts to derail progress for California and the rest of the country.
