Why? Because when the world thrives, businesses thrive.
Businesses are part of the global ecosystem. And ecosystems, by definition, require balance and diversity. They also require a point of view larger than oneself and longer than the immediate future. They require an understanding that we are stronger as a connected whole than as isolated actors.

UPS Canada employees continued to demonstrate the importance of social responsibility in 2019, contributing time and money to the communities they serve. For the 18th consecutive year, UPS Canada was presented with the ‘Thanks a Million’ award, continuing a 30 year relationship with the United Way in Canada and raising $1.1 million (CAD) toward United Way initiatives. This accomplishment was a combination of employee engagement and sponsored events, like the charity plane pulls hosted in Mississauga, Calgary and Hamilton.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the new partnership is Arrival’s unique manufacturing model.
Instead of relying on large, centralized factories, the company plans to establish a number of “micro-factories.”
Depending on where and how the new factories are sited, the arrangement could provide UPS with an opportunity to bring new jobs into communities that need them, rather than encouraging workers to uproot and follow jobs to remote locations.
