OSM Worldwide Achieves CarbonNeutral® Company Certification with Climate Impact Partners

Support for Independently Verified Emission Reduction Projects Delivers Immediate Impact to Help Tackle Climate Change

Glendale Heights, Ill., Aug. 22, 2023 – OSM Worldwide, the fifth-largest nationwide parcel shipper for eCommerce and direct-to-consumer (DTC) packages, today announced the renewal of its CarbonNeutral company certification in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, the leading framework for carbon neutrality. This renewal showcases a continued commitment to sustainability throughout the organization.

To achieve CarbonNeutral certification, OSM 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 (outbound/inbound shipments), business travel, and capital goods.

OSM is reducing its emissions as much as possible, focusing on internal efforts to reduce energy consumption and materials usage. OSM continually optimizes data to ensure operational efficiencies.

To meet their carbon neutral goal, OSM offset all emissions not yet reduced through internal high-quality emission reduction projects, supporting the transition to a low carbon global economy. All the projects are independently verified to ensure emissions reductions are occurring. This ensures the highest environmental integrity in their work.

“We have been experiencing tremendous growth over the last several years, which – for a shipper – means an increasingly higher volume of parcels and packages moving via traditional over-the-road transport methods,” said Gaston Curk, CEO of OSM Worldwide. “We’re cognizant not only of our position in the shipping and logistics ecosystem, but of our responsibility to improve our carbon footprint wherever possible. Our business intelligence tools allow us to track progress and identify areas where improvements can be made.”

From a spokesperson for Climate Impact Partners: “We work with leading organizations to deliver action on climate change and create a more sustainable world. Our joined-up approach helps organizations address their environmental impacts through high-quality carbon market solutions that also deliver positive impact for nature and local communities.”

“We chose to work with Climate Impact Partners because of its reputation as an expert provider of carbon market solutions for private- and public-sector organizations to address their climate impacts,” Curk added. “We’re proud of our efforts to support the transition to a low carbon global economy, and honored our customers can count our efforts among their reasons for working with us.”
