At Sendle, we work to minimise negative externalities and maximise positive impact. Simply, our goal is to do what is best for people and the planet.~ James Chin Moody, co-Founder and CEO of Sendle
Each year 1 billion parcels are sent across Australia alone. And, each one of those parcels has an impact on the environment. In addition to a heap of packaging waste, pounds of CO₂ are emitted into the atmosphere with every delivery. It’s a huge problem.
By shipping with Sendle, you're part of the solution. Every time you send a parcel, we offset the carbon emissions and invest in remarkable environmental projects.
Shoppers are looking for more sustainable products and services, but many of them don’t yet know that carbon neutral shipping is an option. Incorporate this carbon neutral delivery seal and carbon neutral delivery seal into your website, checkout page, or packaging slip to give your customers one more reason to feel good about purchasing from you.
This is how far our parcels have traveled since Sendle has started. And, every single kilometer has been 100% carbon neutral.
In tree terms, the Sendle community’s parcel deliveries have offset the equivalent of the carbon sequestered by this number of tree seedlings in a year.
Sendle is proudly a Climate Neutral Certified company. In addition to shipping 100% carbon neutral since day one, we now extend that commitment to everything we do across our operations.
We are also committed to going net zero emissions by 2030, a full 20 years ahead of the Paris Agreement goal. An ambitious but achievable target, Net Zero 2030 builds on Sendle’s current practices of carbon-neutral delivery and goes further to require emissions are reduced as much as possible, before the remaining emissions are addressed.
This is how much has been saved by being green and shipping with Sendle.

We’ve been a Certified B Corp since our founding in 2014. The B Corp ethos has informed our every decision from day one and it’s an integral part of how we do business today.
A B Corp is a company that verifiably meets the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility. To become certified, each company takes an assessment that measures their performance across five key areas—Governance, Workers, Community, Environment, and Customers.
The process is rigorous, but it’s worth it. It helps us clarify our vision of the company we should be and it shows our customers exactly what we’re all about.
By weaving the B Corp ethos into the structure of our business, we’re able to make good business a natural part of our operations.
The Tasmanian Forest project stops logging and land degradation, preventing stored carbon from being released, protecting this vibrant forest with species found nowhere else, and expanding ecotourism and employment opportunities to local communities. This project’s protected area covers the habitats of several endangered species, including the Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle, the Eastern Quoll, the Ptunarra Brown Butterfly, and the Tasmanian devil.
The Teak Mexico project prevents the loss of wildlife habitation from extensive farming and logging while aiming to restore the land and create stable job opportunities in Tabasco, Chiapas, and Campeche, Mexico. The project is heading forest management and creating a supply chain of highly valued teak wood, helping to mitigate global warming, improve soil quality and water conservation, and add biodiversity.
The Alto Huayabamba project conserves the tropical forests and lowlands of the Andes that teem with irreplaceable wildlife, by employing the local community, implementing sustainable initiatives, and reducing emissions associated with deforestation and land degradation. The protected area is home to many threatened animal species, like the yellow-tailed woolly monkey and species that thrive in the Huayabamba River.
The Mount Sandy protects a rare pocket of wetlands and woodlands full of native vegetation from land degradation by farmlands and employs community members of the region’s Traditional Owners, the Ngarrindjeri. The Ngarrindjeri people have cared for Coorong country for thousands of years, relying on the land to serve as their home and strategic habitats for native wildlife, such as the Short-Beaked Echidna, Purple-Gaped Honeyeater, and Elegant Parrot.
The Keweenaw Bay project is a community-based approach that improves forest management of the Lake Superior Chippewa area, which holds significant importance and land use to Tribal Nations whose livelihoods are threatened by climate change. This project covers 12,500 acres of tribal forestland and enables tribes to develop renewable energy projects and social programs for community members.
