“VMP is conscious of protecting the environment, and we are doing our part to help,” said Tony Pelura, VMP director of marketing/business development. “The UPS Carbon Offset initiative is a wonderful program as it allows its customers to reduce its carbon dioxide (CO2) impact while demonstrating a commitment to sustainability. We are proud to be a part of the program.”
As a result of a VMP donation per each domestic, international, and air freight shipment, UPS purchases certified carbon (CO2) offsets with those funds to give its customer a way to balance out the emissions produced by the transportation of its shipments. According to UPS, it has supported projects that include reforestation, landfill gas destruction, wastewater treatment, and methane destruction. The UPS carbon neutral shipping option allows its customers to demonstrate their commitment to reducing climate impact, and enables the customer and the package recipients to share in that commitment.
