Shipping carbon offsets
Globalisation is great. Free trade stops wars and helps to bring the impoverished out of poverty
We can get fruit and vegetables out of season, the latest smart phone on its worldwide release date, and anyone with a good idea can manufacture and access markets worldwide.
But there is a cost to the environment.
The environmental impact of shipping is something we take seriously. Based on the Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG) below is the CO2 emissions from various transport modes:
Air Freight 552 g/ton-km
Road (Heavy Truck) 50 g/ton-km
Rail (Electric) 18 g/ton-km
Rail (Diesel) 17 g/ton-km
Container Ship (+8000TEU) 6.04 g/ton-km
NZ Freight can work with you to calculate and offset your shipping with some exceptional companies doing great work in repairing the environment.
Our Social Responsibility
Beyond working with you to minimise environmental impacts NZ Freight offset our own green house gas emissions of our vehicle fleet and operations.
We also support Forest and Bird and volunteer to help New Zealand become pest free by 2050.
