TNT offers CO2 neutral domestic express delivery in the Benelux

 


10 November 2015 – Starting this week, TNT offers its business customers a CO2 neutral shipping option for their documents and parcels within the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxemburg, at no additional charge. This initiative will help SMEs and multinationals reduce their CO2 emissions.

From now on, all TNT domestic shipments within one of these three countries will go through two steps: Firstly, TNT will measure how much CO2 emission is produced when transporting its customers’ consignments. Subsequently, TNT will neutralise this emission with an equivalent amount of Gold Standard CO2 credits.

For international shipments a small fee is charged. Upon request, TNT can issue a yearly certificate on how much CO2 emission their shipments have produced and how TNT has neutralised this on their behalf.

Kris Tirry, Team Leader MPC Group of MPC Industries underlines that CO2 efficiency is high on the agenda of TNT’s customers: “From our headquarters in Gorredijk, we ship millions of products to over 30 countries every year. For the selection of our new distribution channel earlier this year, we strictly checked whether the various transporters match our own corporate social responsibility philosophy. We are pleasantly surprised that TNT does enable us to put flesh on the bones of our own philosophy. It goes without saying that we are very satisfied with our new distribution partner.”

CO2 neutral shipping is part of TNT’s extended range of CO2 services, which also includes tools to measure the emission history per customer and to model future emissions on that basis. After Germany, Benelux is the second European region where TNT offers CO2 services at no additional charge.
