The Green Scene

Guess who is making an effort to support environmental sustainable practices?  The United Parcel Service (UPS)!  Go Brown!  In order to be “Green” in the world of logistics, you have to do some creative thinking…..and that is exactly what UPS did!

UPS is offering a new program to its clients…the Carbon Neutral Shipping Option.  This program allows clients to pay a little extra on their shipped packages, which allows UPS to offset the energy used in delivering the package with green renewable energy sources such as:  Garcia River Forestry in the United States, Fujian Landfill Gas in China, La Pradera Landfill Gas in Colombia, and Cholburi Wastewater Biogas-to-Energy in Thailand.

Not only does UPS support these green energy programs with the upcharges they get from the clients requesting to be in the program, they also match the funds collected up to a million dollars.

HardingPoorman Group will be looking into this new program!  Hopefully the next time you get a UPS package from us, it will be stamped with the “Carbon Neutral” logo!
