Carbon Offset Shipping

Ware2Go is offsetting 100% of CO2 emissions for all clients across our network through global forest conservation

OUR CO2
OFFSET INITIATIVE

The Ware2Go Carbon Offset Shipping Initiative launched in January 2021 making Ware2Go a fully green shipping network. The program is free for all clients and offsets all CO2 emissions from small parcel, LTL, FTL, and air shipments with the purchase of carbon credits through a partnership with Pachama.

OUR FOREST CARBON PROJECTS

We're offsetting our shipping carbon impact through a variety of 3rd party certified projects

With a focus on planting new trees, these projects provide carbon benefits by capturing and storing CO2 as the trees grow.

By preserving old growth forests at risk for deforestation, these projects prevent CO2 emissions.

By improving management efforts to transition working forests to sustainable forests, these projects increase the CO2 storage rate of trees.

“O2 exists to be a force for positive change, but as we’ve grown, so has our carbon impact. Through this initiative, Ware2Go has made it easy for us to achieve both carbon neutrality and 2-day shipping, which are both very important to us and our customers.”

Dave Colina, CEO at O2 Recovery

How It Works

STEP 1: Pachama and Ware2Go’s analysts will work together to determine the monthly carbon emissions in metric tonnes of all shipments across Ware2Go’s network.

 

STEP 2: Based on these emissions, Ware2Go will purchase the appropriate number of carbon credits on our clients’ behalf.

 

STEP 3: Through a diverse portfolio of projects Pachama will use the purchased carbon credits to restore vital ecosystems, prevent deforestation of old-growth forests, and transition working forests to sustainable forests.

Carbon offset shipping means that all emissions produced during the shipping and delivery process are being offset by the purchase of carbon credits supporting forest projects that draw a comparable amount of CO2 back into the atmosphere therefore neutralizing the carbon output. 

Yes, every Pachama project is certified by a 3rd party, either VCS, GS, CAR, or ACR. 

The UN introduced the carbon credit system where each credit is equivalent to one tonne of CO2 equivalent removed, reduced, or avoided from the environment. Carbon credits represent climate benefits that would not have been achieved without carbon finance.

Latest trends show that shoppers are becoming increasingly more eco-conscious in their purchasing decisions, but a study released by Shopify revealed that many shoppers will choose speed and convenience over a more sustainable option when it comes to ecommerce shipping. In fact, according to Harvard Business Review, 65% of consumers want to support sustainable brands, but only 26% actually do. Ware2Go’s 1- to 2-day ground delivery network, backed by their new Carbon Offset Shipping Network, eliminates the need for brands and consumers to choose between fast and sustainable shipping options.
