The Human Rights Campaign Foundation's 2008 Corporate Equality Index awarded a score of 100 percent to UPS, a first for the package and freight delivery industry.

The Human Rights Campaign is a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) civil rights organization.

The Corporate Equality Index is a tool used to measure how companies treat their GLBT employees, suppliers and customers.

The 2008 index surveyed 519 companies, with 195 companies receiving a perfect score of 100.

To be rated in the HRC Corporate Equality Index, companies must be either a Fortune 500 company, one of the largest 200 privately held companies on the Forbes Private 500 list or a company with at least 500 employees.
