Onfleet partnered with Pachama to develop Onfleet Offset, which calculates the CO2 impact of its customers’ delivery operations and shares in the cost of offsetting emissions by investing in Gold Standard, VCS, CAR and ACR-verified nature conservancy projects such as reforestation and old forest protections. Pachama then verifies and monitors the impact of these projects using computer vision and machine learning technologies.
The initiative will calculate the CO2 impact of Onfleet customers’ delivery operations and offset them through the purchasing of carbon credits.
“Safe and convenient deliveries are a part of our daily lives, but that doesn’t mean we should accept the negative environmental impact that often comes along with them,” says Khaled Naim, Onfleet’s CEO and co-founder. “As we celebrate some key milestones in 2021 – our 6th birthday just yesterday and our 100 millionth delivery next month – we’re excited to give back in a meaningful way and do our part to support a more sustainable future with the announcement of Onfleet Offset on Earth Day.”
- The program, which kicks off on May 1, will offset emissions through the purchasing of carbon credits at $8 per metric ton.
- Through efficiency improvements with features such as route optimization and automated dispatching, Onfleet’s software enables customers to effectively reduce fleet fuel consumption.
