Managing carbon footprint of delivery 

Consumers care about carbon footprint

Have you ever considered offsetting your last-mile delivery emissions as an online shopper? According to a study conducted by Simon-Kucher & Partners in 2021 of 10,000 people in 17 countries, sustainability is becoming increasingly important in consumers’ buying decisions (1). The global paradigm shifts in how consumers view sustainability and the generational differences in how much they are willing to pay for sustainable products and services are profound. There is therefore a high demand for eco-friendly, emission-free products. When it comes to eco-efficiency of products, the emission pertaining to product delivery is one of the most pressing concerns that need to be addressed. With the skewness of online shopping compared to conventional shopping, retailers are now responsible for product delivery, shifting the responsibility for emissions from consumers.

Evaluation of the last-mile delivery

As a company in the e-commerce sector, GSM holdings has undertaken exhaustive research on emission tracking and eco-efficiency during product delivery. GSM Holdings conducted a stringent ESG risk registry exercise to assess these issues scientifically. A key finding of the exercise was that our product delivery is a key environmental risk area at our organization because of its emissions. GSM Holdings’ management has decided to track and offset the carbon footprint generated by delivering products purchased from GSM Deal City. The carbon footprint of a shipment is estimated based on the distance traveled and the weight of the shipment delivered from our GSM warehouse.

Our solution for sustainable shipment

When customers purchase from our GSM Deal City Website, they can do so in the knowledge that the delivery will be carbon neutral as soon as we calculate the last mile delivery and offset it with the equivalent amount of certified carbon offsets and tree planting. GSM Holdings offsets your shipment by funding high-impact forest conservation and restoration projects worldwide and purchasing carbon credits from the United Nations.

It is time to work together to achieve this greater mission for a better and more sustainable world.
