OSM Worldwide Achieves CarbonNeutral® Company Certification for the Third Year

Independent Assessment Supports Company’s Green Initiatives

Chicago – May 14, 2024 – OSM Worldwide, a nationwide eCommerce and direct-to-consumer (DTC) parcel shipper, announced the renewal of its CarbonNeutral certification, in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, the clear, credible and transparent framework for carbon neutral programs. This renewal highlights the ongoing dedication to sustainability across the organization.

To achieve CarbonNeutral certification, OSM Worldwide worked with Climate Impact Partners, specialists in carbon market solutions for climate action. OSM had an independent assessment of the greenhouse gas emissions produced across operations, including Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions from sources such as heating and fuel, electricity, waste, freight, business travel and capital goods.  

From using data to optimize operational efficiencies, to a concerted company-wide effort to minimize energy consumption and usage, OSM works hard to reduce its carbon footprint.  

“We are thrilled to renew our CarbonNeutral certification for the third year in a row,” said James Kelley, president of OSM. “We work with Climate Impact Partners because they are experts in this sector with over 25 years’ experience. All the projects we are supporting are independently verified and have a real and positive impact on the climate.” 

Emily Mileski, senior account executive at Climate Impact Partners, explained, “We work with leading organizations to deliver action on climate change and create a more sustainable world. Our coordinated approach helps organizations like OSM address their environmental impacts through high-quality carbon market solutions that also deliver a positive impact on nature and local communities.”
