Good for the climate, good for your reputation
Every transport service pollutes the environment with CO2 emissions. Thanks to “pro clima” – Shipment, you can contribute towards a better climate for just a few centimes per consignment. Swiss Post invests these surcharges into high-quality climate protection projects at home and abroad. This involves the reduction of greenhouse gases and the promotion of sustainable development in the project region. This is how we offset the CO2 emissions created when transporting your mail. The reduction in CO2 achieved with the “pro clima” surcharges can be incorporated into your company communications as a promotional message.
“pro clima” shipping offers you the following benefits:
- Carbon-neutral mailing protects the environment.
- Climate protection projects of the highest quality guarantee sustainable development at the project locations.
- The “pro clima” label identifies carbon-neutral consignments and sends a positive signal to recipients.
- Small surcharge on the basic price with no administrative costs.
- Swiss Post’s carbon offsetting volumes for the previous year are certified.
- You can communicate this and boost your image.
- Guarantee thanks to external auditors.
- Your “pro clima” surcharges are fully invested in carbon offsetting.
The following climate protection projects will be supported by your contribution:
Biodigesters on Swiss farms
The storage of liquid manure and dung is an agricultural activity, but it does lead to the production of methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Modern biodigesters on Swiss farms collect this greenhouse gas and use it to produce heat and electricity – thus turning methane, which is harmful to the climate, into a clean energy source for eco-electricity.
Household-scale biodigesters in Cambodia
Gas and electricity? For many Cambodians gas and electricity cannot be taken for granted. This is why small household-scale private biodigesters in Cambodia are extremely important, particularly in rural areas: Livestock manure is mixed with water in the biodigesters. This is all it takes to make clean fuel for a better quality of life. Kitchens are smoke-free, the houses have light, and the occupants’ respiratory health is improved. And there are environmental benefits too. The biodigesters funded by Swiss Post have reduced CO2 emissions in Cambodia year-on-year by 95,000 tonnes.
