QED Environmental Systems partners with UPS® for carbon neutral shipping
Jul 11 2022
Q.E.D Environmental Systems, Inc. (QED) has signed a carbon neutral services agreement with United Parcel Service (UPS®) so they can reduce the environmental impact of shipping products to customers.
UPS’ carbon emissions calculator will be used to calculate the CO2 emissions of QED’s shipments, which it will then offset by purchasing carbon credits. UPS® will also provide an annual report of calculations, so they can demonstrate total, annual carbon savings.
A single carbon offset equates to one metric ton of CO2 emissions, with offsets created and sold through carbon reduction projects. These projects often revolve around carbon capture and sequestration, projects at Garcia River Forest, in California, and Chol Chaeron Biogas Capture, at Cholburi, in Thailand, are a couple of notable examples.
QED’s agreement with UPS is just the latest development in an expanding portfolio of initiatives to lower the company’s environmental impact. Their Environment and Community Committee is currently evaluating the possibility of introducing a solar panel array for the company’s UK premises at Cyan Park, in Coventry as well as a number of other measures to help reduce energy consumption within the building.
Since moving to the site from its former office in Leamington, the company has also maintained a significant reduction in paper usage, with initiatives around digitising Calibration Certificates set to come in the future.
