We climate compensate all domestic parcels

All emissions generated by our domestic parcel transports are compensated by us. We do this as a complement to our other sustainability work

With the support of the Kyoto Protocol

There are many actors working with climate compensation, but we believe that the project must be evaluated by the UN. In the 2008 Kyoto Protocol, the UN defines how climate compensation should be done, through The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).

Collaboration with Atmosfair

For a project to be CDM-classified, it must contribute to reduced emissions, which without the investment would never have been reduced. The project must be qualified through a thorough process. Approvals are given by Designated National Authorities and monitored by the UN CDM Executive Board.

We cooperate with the company Atmosfair. A global player working with climate compensation, which you can read more about here.

Optional Climate Compensation

We offer climate compensation of goods through the option Climate compensation. Our goal is to offer this for all our products, but we start with domestic land shipments.

Climate compensation is about taking responsibility for the emissions that the business entails by investing in climate measures in developing countries. For example, it can be energy efficiency and renewable energy that enable us to remove fossil energy sources.

How do I compensate for climate change?

Follow three simple steps:

  1. Book your transport just as usual
  2. Select the Climate Compensation option
  3. Pay your invoice, and we will then transfer the money to Atmosfair

Atmosfair is a recognized global player that is CDM-rated *. That is why we choose to work with them. The money goes to various certified projects within Atmosfair, depending on what we choose that particular quarter.

* There are many actors working with climate compensation, but in order to be classified as serious, we believe that the project must comply with UN regulations. In the 2008 Kyoto Protocol, the UN defines how climate compensation should go - through The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). This mechanism aims to stimulate sustainable development and reduce emissions.

For projects to be CDM-classified, they must contribute to reduced emissions that would not have been implemented without the investment. The projects must be qualified through a thorough process. Projects are approved by the Designated National Authorities and the process is monitored by the UN's CDM Executive Board. Read more on Atmosfair's website.
