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.
Alongside over 1,000 other B Corps, Sendle has committed to going Net Zero by 2030, a full 20 years ahead of the Paris Agreement goal. We're proud to be a part of this historic climate action.
Achieving net zero emissions by 2030 is an ambitious, but achievable target. It 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. Any emissions that can’t be reduced to zero are accounted for through projects that remove carbon, including the tracked growth of trees.
This is how much has been saved by being green and shipping with Sendle.
