5 shipments = 1 tree
At EET we are very aware of our environmental footprint and we are determined to reduce the impact of our activities on the climate. Planting trees is one of the best tools in removing carbon pollution from our atmosphere, which is why we have teamed up with Ecologi, a company dedicated to finding the world’s best climate crisis solutions. On top of the carbon credits we already buy to offset emissions related to our outbound shipments, we are committed to planting at least one million trees by 2025 and feel very satisfied knowing that at the same time we are creating employment for local families and restoring wildlife habitats.
Our partnership with Ecologi makes it easy to keep track of our contribution to reducing carbon pollution and virtually watch our forest grow. For every five shipments leaving our warehouses, we are planting a tree. With around 1.1 million outbound shipments a year, we will plant more than 220,000 trees a year – that’s an area of the size of two tennis courts every day!
"As a distributor, the by far largest source of emissions is our outbound transportation. With this initiative we are going beyond making our shipments climate neutral. By committing to plant a tree for every five shipments, we are making this part of our business climate positive, meaning that we compensate more CO2 than we emit. It is not only the right thing to do, but it also makes good sense businesswise”
