OSM Worldwide certified as a CarbonNeutral® company
Chicago, Ill., May 13, 2022–OSM Worldwide, a leading provider of domestic and international ecommerce shipping solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded CarbonNeutral® company certification by Natural Capital Partners (NCP).
CarbonNeutral® certification is the global standard, created and managed by Natural Capital Partners to deliver clear, conclusive, and transparent carbon neutral programs for business. The designation certifies that OSM has calculated and offset all emissions associated with its business operations, in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol and Greenhouse Gas Protocol Scope 2 Guidance, and utilizing contractual instruments that meet International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance (ICROA) standards.
“As a shipping company delivering packages to points around the country, we have a unique responsibility to reduce our impact on emissions,” says James Kelley, President of OSM Worldwide. “Our CarbonNeutral® company certification is the latest chapter in our ongoing effort to help protect our environment and serve as a sustainable partner to our customers.”
To achieve CarbonNeutral® status, OSM teamed with NCP to measure direct and indirect activities that contribute to total carbon emissions, implement internal reductions, and offset all remaining emissions through the targeted financing of projects with verified emissions reductions and removals.
For its offset contribution, OSM is helping to finance NCP’s Global Renewable Energy Portfolio, which enables accelerated adoption of solar, wind and other renewable energy technologies in areas around the world.
In addition to offsetting carbon, OSM Worldwide is working daily to improve on-premises recycling, minimize waste, reduce energy consumption, and leverage its Premium Network to drive sustainability throughout its entire organization — creating an even better value equation for customers.
“We’re proud that our customers can add strong environmental credentials to their reasons for choosing OSM,” says James Kelley. “By taking actions throughout our operation and by participating in carbon financing to offset our remaining emissions, we’re working to make a real difference for the planet and all who we serve — employees, our customers, the community, and our partners.”
