The Postal Service has improved its Green Initiative Tracking Tool (GITT) to provide users with real-time data on sustainability performance metrics at the national, area, district and facility levels.
The tool also helps users plan and track facility-level sustainability projects.
For instance, GITT ranks districts based on recycling revenue, as well as costs for trash removal, facility energy, vehicle fuel, consumables and water. Lean green teams can also use GITT to analyze facility-level data to improve local performance.
GITT is one part of the Postal Service’s overall sustainability efforts, which aim to improve the organization’s operations while protecting the environment.
Additionally, the latest edition of the Sustainable Facility Update newsletter has a feature article about GITT.
