Partnership enables Akzent to be the first logistics company in Mexico to offer carbon neutral shipping
Atlanta, GA (February 10) – GreenPrint today announced a partnership with Akzent, a Monterrey, Mexico based logistics company. Through a program called Akzent Zero, GreenPrint will calculate and offset emissions on all ground, ocean and air freight transportation enabling Akzent to be the first logistics company in Mexico to offer carbon neutral shipping to every customer at no additional cost.
Globally, the transportation sector is responsible for 11% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. While it will take many years to decarbonize the ships and trucks currently in operation, carbon offsets provide an opportunity to address emissions in the immediate term.
“We are thrilled to continue to engage with such committed organizations as Akzent. We’re proud to be a part of their sustainability strategy,” said Pete Davis, founder and CEO of GreenPrint. “Neutralizing the emissions of the logistics industry is a vast goal, but we can get there, one enterprise at a time.”
“We realize the challenge the industry faces in reducing emissions, and the Akzent Zero program allows us and our customers to take immediate action on climate change,” said Rodrigo Garza, EVP at Akzent. “This program is part of a company-wide priority to positively impact the environment, our industry, and the communities we serve.”
