Transforming shipping

To do what’s best for people and the planet, we need to change how shipping works beyond the routes and customers we serve. As a Certified B Corp, Sendle and our partners are leading that change.

More on B Corp

Proud to be America's first 100% carbon neutral shipper

Each year 165 billion packages are sent across the United States alone. And, each one of those packages 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 package, 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.

How does it work?

We account for the CO₂ released for every package sent with Sendle. To offset that carbon footprint, we invest via our partner, South Pole, in projects that account for that carbon by conserving and replanting forests and other vital ecosystems. We guarantee that all shipments from Sendle customers are 100% carbon neutral.

Does this cost me anything?

Nope! Being sustainable shouldn’t cost more. In fact, with Sendle you can actually save money by being green. How cool is that?

Can I choose what projects my business supports?

Absolutely! Each year we ask Sendlers to select a project for us to invest in on their behalf.

Are you going beyond carbon offsetting?

Yes! Before offsetting comes reductions to prevent the release of CO₂ (and air pollutants) in the first place. Sendle’s network prevents emissions by filling the unused capacity in trucks already on the road. We are a Climate Neutral Certified company, and committed to even more carbon reductions to achieve net zero emissions by 2030.

Environmental impact

Every single shipment makes a difference by saving carbon capturing forests and all the little creatures that call them home.

25 billion miles

This is how far our parcels have traveled since Sendle has started. And, every single mile has been 100% carbon neutral.

From Earth to Interstellar space

Sendle has offset 25 billion miles of carbon. That's 37.31 light hours, or the equivalent to driving a 1 tonne truck deeper into space than the Voyager probe!

73.5 million trees

In tree terms, the Sendle community’s package deliveries have offset the equivalent of the carbon sequestered by this number of tree seedlings in a year.

Climate Neutral

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 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.

What is a B Corp?

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.

Our projects

Learn more about the environmental projects supported by Sendle and the community of Sendlers.

Klawock Heenya

( United States )

Covering 8,619 acres of forest in Southeastern Alaska, this project aims to re-establish young growth stands of timber via natural generation while maintaining water quality and conserving critical wildlife habitat. This project allows the forest to progress naturally while providing significant climate benefits through carbon sequestration.

Tasmanian Forest

( Australia )

Protecting pockets of native forests in Tasmania’s Central Highlands since 2009. By stopping logging and land degradation, the project prevents stored carbon from being released. The vibrant forest creates economic opportunities for ecotourism, improves water quality, and protects wild species like the Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle, found nowhere else. 

Mount Sandy

( Australia )

The Mount Sandy project permanently protects a rare pocket of wetlands and woodlands between the Coorong National Park and Lake Albert in partnership with its Traditional Owners, the Ngarrindjeri. As one of the last remaining areas of native vegetation in the region, the land forms a strategic corridor for wildlife, including the short-beaked echidna, purple-gaped honeyeater and elegant parrot.

Beidler Forest

( United States )

Native trees including longleaf pine, red maple, and water oak have been permanently conserved in this project owned and managed by the National Audubon Society in South Carolina. The National Audubon Society of South Carolina has protected 5,500 acres where many birds, including the stunning eastern Painted Bunting, call home. These birds are just one species threatened by habitat loss.
