Keeping our planet and environment healthy.
Increased carbon dioxide (and equivalent)—CO2e—levels are a significant and harmful contributor to climate change.
Most people don't consider the environmental impact of their online shopping deliveries—just clickety-click and, like magic, it's on your doorstep. But the logistics involved generate a huge amount of CO2—over 10% of global CO2e emissions are from transport and logistics.Being carbon neutral means that your net release of CO2e into the atmosphere is zero.

Basically, whatever CO2e you emit is canceled out by a process known as 'offsetting'—that is, supporting projects that reduce emissions, like regenerating precious forest, replacing old equipment with more efficient technology, or even training communities in beekeeping!
Consumers are becoming better informed and more aware of the environmental impact of products and the services supporting them. 92% of customers are more likely to trust a company that supports social or environmental issues.

We were founded as the first 100% carbon neutral delivery service in Canada, Australia, the U.S., and we maintain that commitment to this day.
Because at Sendle we believe that sending a parcel shouldn’t cost the earth.
Sendle calculates the highest amount of carbon that could be generated by any given parcel send. This generates a carbon yield number. Using that number as a guide, we use a portion of each parcel cost to fund sustainability projects via South Pole.
This partnership enables us to support genuinely world-changing initiatives aimed at preserving and regenerating natural ecosystems, whether it’s restoring endangered rainforest habitats or providing clean water access for communities in Africa. By doing so, we ensure that all Sendle deliveries have a net carbon footprint of zero. Actually zero!
Every year, Sendle's community of business owners are given the chance to vote on which projects will offset Sendle's carbon emissions for the next 12 months.
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.
