Atlanta, GA (April 5, 2022) – GreenPrint, a PDI Company, today announced a collaboration with PICKUP, a nationwide last-mile delivery company, to calculate and neutralize vehicle emissions for all its deliveries. The relationship will enable PICKUP and its retail and commercial partners to meet corporate sustainability targets while addressing the growing consumer demand for environmentally friendly delivery options.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the transportation sector is responsible for 29% of U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The PICKUP carbon-neutral delivery solution, powered by GreenPrint, will provide a non-disruptive solution to minimize the carbon footprint from e-commerce and last-mile fulfillment using certified carbon offsets to bridge the gap to a more sustainable future.
“PICKUP was founded with the vision of providing customers with a best-in-class delivery experience,” said Aline Riemenschneider, Director of Marketing at PICKUP. “Being able to now also say that these deliveries are carbon-neutral is a logical evolution in our desire to continue to surprise and delight the consumer and our partners, while also making an immediate positive impact on the environment.”
According to the GreenPrint 2021 Business of Sustainability Index, 77% of Americans are concerned about the environmental impact of their purchases, and 73% will use a product’s environmental friendliness as a factor in their purchasing decision.
“We are excited to work with PICKUP and proud to be a part of its sustainability strategy,” said Pete Davis, founder and CEO of GreenPrint. “As more consumers consider e-commerce, it is increasingly important to address the emissions stemming from the last leg of a product’s journey to their doorstep if we want to achieve our global climate targets.”
