Interview: Scott Wicker, Chief Sustainability Officer, UPS

At this week’s Fortune Brainstorm Green conference, I had a chance to talk briefly with UPS’ Chief Sustainability Officer, Scott Wicker.

Readers of TriplePundit know there’s a lot to say about sustainability at UPS. From innovative fleet decisions to their new LEED gold campus in Atlanta. Scott and I chatted about what the role of a high level sustainability officer is at a company like UPS, as well as some of the specific ways UPS is working on radically improving efficiency throughout the company’s operations.
