UPS expands Carbon Neutral Shipping

UPS has expanded its carbon neutral shipping programme to 35 countries and territories across Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Millions more UPS customers now have the option of paying a small fee to calculate and offset the carbon emissions associated with their shipments.

UPS charges a small flat fee which varies from country to country, and will depend on the type of service selected and the origin and destination of the shipment.

The carbon offset process is certified by The Carbon Neutral Company. Measurements of emissions are based on Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

Countries where the service is available include: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland.
