BP to implement carbon offset programme for Fedex Envelope

LONDON, UK: Through the carbon-neutral FedEx Envelope shipping programme, FedEx will calculate the carbon dioxide released through FedEx Envelope shipments on an annual basis and purchase the equivalent amount of carbon offsets from BP’s not-for-profit, BP Target Neutral scheme. This will neutralize the equivalent amount of CO2 emissions by supporting investments in low carbon development projects that reduce or remove carbon from being released into the atmosphere.

These projects also create additional environmental, social and economic benefits locally. They include a biogas farm facility in the Netherlands, a reforestation project in the Tanzanian Southern Highlands that is converting degraded grassland to commercial forest and a landfill gas collection system at Thailand’s first sanitary landfill. The agreement between BP Target Neutral and FedEx makes FedEx Express the first global express transportation company to offer carbon neutral envelope shipping at no extra charge to the customer. “This is a milestone agreement between BP Target Neutral and FedEX. It is one of many examples in which businesses throughout the world can play their part in reducing impact of carbon emissions on the planet,” said Andrea Abrahams, Global Director, Target Neutral, BP.
