We Clean up after ourselves...
E-commerce deliveries inherently contribute to carbon emissions, contributing to the environmental impact of our operations. In our commitment to sustainability, we actively support innovative companies specializing in carbon removal technologies. By aligning with these cutting-edge initiatives, we aim to minimize the carbon footprint associated with our e-commerce deliveries, fostering a more eco-friendly approach to online retail. Together, we work towards a greener future, ensuring responsible and conscientious practices in the realm of e-commerce.
Together, participating businesses have…
- Removed thousands of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere
- Provided carbon-neutral shipping on more than ten million orders
Here's how it works: For every order we receive, a formula is used to calculate the estimated shipping emissions. Based on those estimates, a portion of our revenue goes to carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct. Those companies use that money to remove however much carbon our shipments created. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.
Let's meet a few of the companies removing carbon from the sky.
