100% Carbon Neutral Delivery
What is Carbon Neutral?
Increased carbon dioxide (and equivalent) - CO2e - levels are a significant and harmful contributor to climate change.
Most people don't consider the environmental impact of their online shopping deliveries – just clickety-click and, like magic, it's on your doorstep. But the logistics involved generate a huge amount of CO2 - over 10% of global CO2e emissions are from transport and logistics.Being carbon neutral means that your net release of CO2e into the atmosphere is zero. Basically, whatever CO2e you emit is cancelled out by a process known as 'offsetting' – that is, supporting projects that reduce emissions, like regenerating precious forest, replacing old equipment with more efficient technology, or even training communities in beekeeping!
How Do We Offset?
The boring part
Sendle calculates the highest amount of carbon that could be generated by any of the orders we send. This generates a carbon yield number. Using that number as a guide, we use each parcel contribution to fund sustainability projects via South Pole.
The awesome part
This partnership enables us to support genuinely world-changing initiatives aimed at preserving and regenerating natural ecosystems, whether it’s restoring endangered rainforest habitats or providing clean water access for communities in Africa. By doing so, Sendle ensures that all deliveries have a net carbon footprint of zero. Actually zero!
