Woodridge, Illinois-based trade show display and exhibit manufacturer Orbus Exhibit & Display Group announces that it is partnering with UPS to participate in the Carbon Neutral Shipping program. The Carbon Neutral Shipping program is a service offered to businesses by UPS to minimize the impact that shipping has on the environment.
UPS’ Carbon Neutral Shipping program offers businesses the option to ship packages as carbon neutral as a means of reducing the carbon dioxide (CO2) impact that shipping has on the environment. For businesses involved in the program, the CO2 emissions for all packages shipped via UPS are calculated. Carbon credits are then purchased by UPS on behalf of Orbus and other companies in the program, which fund certified environmentally responsible projects.
The carbon credits purchased by UPS on behalf of Orbus have been invested in the Garcia River Forest and the Big River and Salmon Creek Forests in California. Both programs are operated by the Conservation Fund, and the trees housed in the forests contribute to trapping nearly 600,000 tons of carbon emissions annually. The purchase of carbon credits provides support for the maintenance and development of these forest projects.
