The Post is an important partner connecting small and large businesses alike to customers everywhere. This reach is essential in the age of e-commerce, where customers have access to a truly global market. In turn, micro, small and medium sized enterprises in particular can benefit from affordable trade services offered through the Post. By offering inclusive access to the global market, Posts help boost socioeconomic development of individuals, communities and nations they serve.
Yet these benefits may still have social and environmental impacts that must be considered.
The UPU provides Posts with tools to encourage more responsible consumption and production, in line with Sustainable Development Goal 12, supporting them to offer customers more sustainable delivery options, and to rethink how goods that enter the supply chain are packaged, reused and recycled.
