Orbus Exhibit & Display Group is proud to announce that the company has partnered with UPS to participate in the Carbon Neutral Shipping programme.
The Carbon Neutral Shipping programme is a service offered to businesses by UPS to minimise the impact that shipping has on the environment. Orbus has been part of the programme since September of 2015. UPS’ Carbon Neutral Shipping programme offers businesses the option to ship packages as carbon neutral, as a means of reducing the carbon dioxide (CO2) impact that shipping has on the environment.
For businesses involved in the programme, the CO2 emissions for all packages shipped via UPS are calculated. Carbon credits are then purchased by UPS on behalf of Orbus and other companies in the programme, which fund certified environmentally responsible projects.
Orbus is registered to ISO 14001:2004, recognising the company’s commitment to environmental protection. As such, joining UPS’s carbon neutral programme was a perfect alignment with the company’s existing efforts to minimise the impact had on the environment through the design, manufacture and shipping of tradeshow displays. The carbon credits purchased by UPS on behalf of Orbus have been invested in the Garcia River Forest and the Big River and Salmon Creek Forests in California. Both programmes are operated by the Conservation Fund, and the trees housed in the forests contribute to trapping nearly 600,000 tons of carbon emissions annually.The purchase of carbon credits provide support for the maintenance and development of these forest projects. The UPS carbon neutral shipping option provides Orbus with the opportunity to stay closely aligned with its environmental protection goals in all aspects of business.
The programme is one that Orbus looks forward to continuing to be involved with over time.
