TNT is now offering CO2 neutral delivery of all express domestic consignments in Germany at no additional charge.
Increasingly companies are interested in this service as the customer is looking at its complete supply chain including the CO2 emission related to the transport of their goods. The initiative will help SMEs and large customers alike to mitigate their environmental impact. CO2 Neutral shipping is part of TNT’s renewed range of CO2 services, which also includes tools to measure historic emissions and model future ones. These services equip customers with knowledge and allow them to take action. They are designed to meet the needs of both large companies with comprehensive carbon reduction programmes and SMEs that rely on practical third-party tools.
CO2 neutral shipping works in two steps: TNT first measures how much CO2 emissions are produced when transporting its customers’ consignments, then neutralises these emissions with an equivalent amount of CO2 credits. TNT exclusively uses CO2 credits from renewable energy projects that meet Gold Standard requirements. An external auditor (SGS) verifies the process. TNT’s CO2 calculation methodology fully complies with the European Norm EN16258.
Customers can also opt for CO2 Neutral for their international consignments. By doing so, they will receive a yearly certificate specifying the amount of CO2 that TNT has neutralised on their behalf. TNT’s European Road Network provides businesses with services to help drive down CO2 emissions directly when compared to air transportation.
In the coming months TNT will roll out its upgraded CO2 services in other large European countries.
