OUR CARBON NEUTRAL
In response to the global climate crisis, we have launched an industry-leading program that allows shippers to take action against climate change.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the transportation sector is the largest emitter of greenhouse gases. As transportation intermediaries, we’re striving to tackle this problem head-on and inspire others in the industry to do the same.
How Does Our Carbon Offset Program Work?
We track, offset and report back to you each month with the greenhouse gas emissions you produced through your shipments based on factors including distance, weight and mode of transportation. We then purchase offsets for your company, meaning we fund offset projects around the world equivalent to the level of carbon emitted by your company that month.
We provide your company with a unique URL, powered by Cloverly, to see the stats and location of each funded project updated in real-time.
The Cloverly portal ensures that all projects are measurable and traceable and meet globally recognized offset standards.
For companies engaged in our program for more than three months, we offer company spotlights on our social media pages, highlighting the sustainability efforts and mission of the company.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does it cost extra to offset our shipping activities?
For self-directed LTL clients, there are no additional costs for your LTL shipments. For other modes such as truckload and rail, we will calculate the emissions on each shipment at no cost, and provide you with options to purchase carbon offsets.
Is this program open to all shippers?
Yes. To get in touch, please send an email to email@example.com
Are there different types of emissions?
There are two types of emissions: direct and indirect.
The Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative defines direct emissions as those originating from sources that are owned or controlled by an organization. Examples include emissions from a manufacturing site or from company-owned fleet vehicles.
Indirect emissions are those emissions created as a consequence of the activities of an organization but generated from sources owned or controlled by another entity. Examples of indirect emissions include those associated with employee air travel or third-party shipping.
