USPS Saves Millions Through Sustainability Efforts

By reducing the use of energy, water, consumables and petroleum fuel, the U.S. Postal Service saved more than $52 million last year, the agency said.

USPS said “employee green teams” were at the forefront of leading the agency into adopting more sustainable practices.

Approximately $12 million of the savings came from vehicle fuel cost avoidance, $10 million from facility energy savings, $1 million from water savings, and $4 million from a decline in supplies spending.

The agency also credited $25 million in savings to a decrease in landfill fees by recycling more than 253,000 tons of material.

“Across the country, postal employees are participating in more than 850 green teams,” said USPS Chief Sustainability Officer Thomas Day. “Motivated by a desire to be good stewards of the environment, and our sustainability call to action, ‘leaner, greener, faster, smarter,’ employee green teams are helping the Postal Service achieve positive results in energy reduction and resource conservation.”

The agency said it hopes to continue to improve sustainable practices and hopes to reduce spending on supplies by 30 percent before 2020.
