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 cancelled 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 Australia’s first 100% carbon neutral delivery service, and we maintain that commitment to this day. We’re also Australia’s first tech B Corp!
Because at Sendle we believe that sending a package shouldn’t cost the earth.
Sendle calculates the highest amount of carbon that could be generated by any given package send. This generates a carbon yield number. Using that number as a guide, we use a portion of each package cost to fund sustainability projects via South Pole Group.
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.

A true blue Aussie legend, the Long-nosed Potoroo, is still under threat. The Potoroo community in the Annya State forest was logged in the 1980’s and visits by feral cats, invasive plants and illegal poaching mean the little guy is still on the endangered list. By protecting against further tree clearing, and replanting with natural vegetation, this project ensures these amazing animals don’t become another extinction statistic.

Logging has long threatened the diverse wildlife of Afognak’s coastal temperate rainforests. The Afognak Forest Carbon project encompasses 8,219 acres of protected old-growth Sitka Spruce forests, lakes, wetlands, and streams, which are home to a diverse set of wildlife such as the Kodiak brown bear, rainbow trout, Arctic char, and several species of Pacific salmon. This project maintains, restores, and protects this pristine wilderness and its wildlife in perpetuity.

The Amazon is celebrated as a hub of biodiversity. Yet it remains under constant threat from human interference – most recently as a result of the new Inter Ocean Highway. The Peruvian Madre de Dios rainforest is home to eleven endangered wildlife species (including the jaguar and giant armadillo) and four endangered plant species. This project limits the impact of human immigration and development through sustainable timber concessions, as well as community education and support.
