What is carbon neutral??
Increased carbon dioxide (and equivalent) - CO2e - levels are a significant and harmful contributor to climate change.
Most people don't consider the environmental impact of their online shopping deliveries – just clickety-click and, like magic, it's on your doorstep. But the logistics involved generate a huge amount of CO2 - over 10% of global CO2e emissions are from transport and logistics.
Being carbon neutral means that your net release of CO2e into the atmosphere is zero.
Basically, whatever CO2e you emit is cancelled out by a process known as 'offsetting' – that is, supporting projects that reduce emissions, like regenerating precious forest, replacing old equipment with more efficient technology, or even training communities in beekeeping!
