Ware2Go’s Carbon Offset Shipping Initiative Wins a 2021 “Green Supply Chain Award” from Supply & Demand Chain Executive
Leader in On-Demand Fulfillment is Prioritizing Sustainability in a Historically Carbon Intensive Industry
ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ware2Go, the UPS (NYSE:UPS) company enabling merchants of any size to offer one- to two-day shipping with its on-demand fulfillment network and integrated tech platform, today announced that the company has won a 2021 “Green Supply Chain Award” from Supply & Demand Chain Executive (SDCE) magazine. Ware2Go was honored by SDCE for its Carbon Offset Shipping Initiative, which offsets all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from small parcel, LTL, FTL, and air shipments for merchants within the Ware2Go network.
Ware2Go launched its Carbon Offset Shipping Initiative early in 2021 and, through its partnership with Pachama, has already offset thousands of metric tonnes of carbon. “As a leader in the supply chain industry we have a responsibility to enable solutions when it comes to sustainability practices,” commented Ware2Go CEO Steve Denton. “We believe this initiative is an impactful way to make a measurable difference for our clients, their customers and the future of our planet.”
All Ware2Go merchants are automatically enrolled in the program, making sustainability an integral part of doing business with the company. “We’ve hard-wired sustainability into our business model,” continued Denton. “We don’t have to compromise our values to deliver excellent service.”
Ware2Go clients like O2 Recovery view the Carbon Offset Shipping Initiative as an extension of their brand values. “In 2021 we achieved 100% carbon-neutral status with Climate Neutral’s official certification, thanks in part to Ware2Go’s commitment to plant at least one tree for every four packages we ship,” said Dave Colina, Founder and CEO. “In Ware2Go we know we have a true partner that cares not only about getting our products in our customers’ hands but doing it in a sustainable way that we can all be proud of.”
