To compensate the CO2 emissions caused by both inbound (from our partner factories in India to our warehouse in the Netherlands) as well as outbound (warehouse to B2B and B2C customers) shipping, we purchase carbon offsets. Simply put, we undo the carbon we emitted by investing in different carbon offset projects. The Envira Amazonia project, for example, prevents deforestation of the Amazon rainforest and protects biodiversity. Thousands of acres of highly endangered tropical rainforest eco-systems are preserved while simultaneously rural forest communities are provided with educational programs, schools, clinics and direct payments for forest conservation. Another project we support provides Indian households with cleaner cook stoves.
With the help of our logistics partners, we monitor and try to minimize our shipping induced carbon emissions wherever possible.
