Green shipping is the reduction of the use of resources and energy to protect the environment from the environmental pollutants and greenhouse gases that are produced from shipping.
Both air and sea freight are big contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, and both are expected to continue rising exponentially.
Did you know that maritime shipping emits about 30 percent of all nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions and 9 percent of sulfur oxides (SOx) emissions? (Han, 2010)
These gases can cause collateral damage to human lives and infrastructure with gases that can cause acid rain, toxic marine algal bloom, smog and more.
While air shipping is less likely to cause ecosystem damages like oil spills, and burns cleaner jet fuel, we understand that air shipping leaves a significantly larger carbon footprint.
As such, we are committed to conduct our business in a sustainable and responsible way through GreenShipping.
To obtain net-zero climate impact when shipping.
An important first step towards net-zero climate impact is achieving carbon neutral shipping by promoting eco-friendly packing options for users.
To pack parcels with eco-friendly materials such as recycled paper fillers. We are also partnering with the Wren Climate Fund, a carbon offset project, to engage in regenerative agroforestry and providing clean cooking fuel for refugees.
As of 7 July 2021, JustShip will be partnering with independently verified carbon credit schemes and ethical packaging suppliers to offer carbon-neutral shipping and plastic-free packing options for a nominal fee.
