UPS pledges to plant more than 10,000 trees for the packages shipped during Expo 2020 Dubai.


UPS has launched the “Forest of the Future” initiative, which aims to draw the features of a greener planet. Within the framework of the initiative, the Foundation will plant a tree in honor of each customer who ships a parcel through UPS offices located at the Expo 2020 Dubai site, and this comes from its commitment to providing one of the most important events in the world. The World Expo is absolutely sustainable.

In recognition of the positive role they play, customers will receive a digital carbon neutrality certificate that includes accurate details of the shipment’s carbon footprint and the action taken to offset it.

The Forest of the Future initiative comes within the framework of UPS’s global commitment to climate action, as it forms part of the broader role it plays as an official logistics partner for Expo 2020 Dubai.

Customers will be able to choose their preferred location for planting the tree in countries spanning the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East, Africa and Asia including the UAE, India, South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya and Japan, as well as selecting the type of tree to be native to the region of their choice.

As part of the “Forest of the Future” initiative, UPS plans to plant 10,000 trees and 750 trees in the UAE this October, in addition to planting 2,025 trees in Japan, where the next World Expo will be held in 2025.

Laura Lynn, UPS Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, said: “Through our partnership with Expo 2020 Dubai, UPS seeks to advance our sustainability initiatives and ensure that we are able to make a positive and sustainable impact in communities around the world.

The Forest of the Future initiative embodies our commitment to decarbonization, support climate action through environmental initiatives, and help improve air quality through carbon sequestration.”
