Climate Counts has released green rankings for consumer shipping companies. DHL and the U.S. Postal Service received the highest marks.

DHL led the sector with a score of 45 (out of 100), followed by the U.S. Postal Service with a score of 43. UPS was next, scoring a 39, with FedEx lagging behind its competitors, according to the ranking, with a score of 28.

“While we’re pleased the shipping sector has begun to take action on climate, they, like most of us in the business community, have a long way to go,” said Gary Hirshberg, CEO of Stonyfield Farm and board chair of Climate Counts. “If I had ever come home from school with a 45, I would have been in trouble – even if it were the holidays.” In Climate Counts’ food sector ratings, Stonyfield has a score of 63.

Climate Counts’ has also released a Holiday Shopping Guide (PDF) which ranks 60 of the top companies on their climate commitment. Canon, Nike and Unilever top the 60 companies. The bottom of the index includes 17 companies with scores under 12, including, Jones Apparel, Apple, eBay, Limited Brands and Levi Strauss.
