Ware2Go Starts Carbon Offset
May 10, 2021
had started to offset carbon emissions for all small parcel, LTL, FTL, and air
shipments within their network. The program will retroactively offset all
shipments made since January 2021, and all Ware2Go clients are automatically
enrolled at no cost to the merchant. Through a partnership with Pachama, Ware2Go
will participate in a variety of carbon offset programs, from reforestation to
old growth forest conservation, in order to make the maximum impact.
“At Ware2Go, our goal is to build merchant relationships based on shared values.
Sustainability is a key brand initiative for many of our clients and for Ware2Go
as well,” said Patrick Cadic, Ware2Go Chief Revenue Officer, “Our priority was
to make our Carbon Offset Shipping Network easy to adopt and simply part of
doing business with Ware2Go. That’s why we’ve chosen to fully fund the
initiative and to automatically enroll all of our current and future clients so
they can extend their sustainability efforts all the way to their customers’
Pachama and Ware2Go’s analysts will work together to determine the monthly
carbon emissions in metric tonnes of all shipments across Ware2Go’s network.
Based on these emissions, Ware2Go will purchase the appropriate number of carbon
credits on their clients’ behalf. Through a diverse portfolio of projects they
will use carbon credits to restore vital ecosystems, prevent deforestation of
old-growth forests, and transition working forests to sustainable forests with
mature trees that are capable of sequestering a high volume of CO2.
client O2 Recovery is thrilled that Ware2Go has done the heavy lifting in
building a sustainable fulfillment network. “O2 exists to be a force for
positive change,” said founder and CEO Dave Colina. “As we’ve grown, so has our
carbon impact. But we’re determined to leave nothing behind but our legacy of
honesty, humility and hustle. The fact that Ware2Go has made this initiative
universal across their network has deepened our partnership, which is based not
only on a shared commitment to the growth of our business but also on the
pursuit of the most ethical practices. Ware2Go has made it easy for us to
achieve both carbon neutrality and 2-day shipping, which are both very important
to us and our customers.”
“Partnering with Ware2Go made sense from the start,” said Pachama co-founder and
CEO Diego Saez Gil. “Pachama is using AI to democratize carbon offsetting in the
same way that Ware2Go is using machine learning to simplify the supply chain for
businesses of all sizes. Together we’re lowering the point of entry on
sustainability so that any business can make a positive impact.”
Latest trends show that shoppers are becoming increasingly more eco-conscious in
their purchasing decisions, but a study released by Shopify revealed that many
shoppers will choose speed and convenience over a more sustainable option when
it comes to ecommerce shipping. In fact, according to Harvard Business Review,
65% of consumers want to support sustainable brands, but only 26% actually do.
Ware2Go’s 1- to 2-day ground delivery network, backed by their new Carbon Offset
Shipping Network, eliminates the need for brands and consumers to choose between
fast and sustainable shipping options.
