Travellty put forth its commitment to becoming a carbon neutral company. In the past, Travellty has made other commitments towards environmental sustainability, such as providing free shipping for eco-friendly products and encouraging customers to shop locally, as well as printing our packing slips on Sustainable Forestry Initiative-certified paper (SFI-01168) . This new initiative is just one more way that Travellty is commiting to being part of the solution rather than part of the problem when it comes to climate change.
How It Works
The details of Shopify's carbon neutrality program are outlined in its Climate Action Plan, which sets out an ambitious timeline for reducing emissions and achieving carbon neutrality by 2040. In the short term, Shopify plans on reducing its scope 1 and scope 2 emissions (those associated with direct energy use) by 50% over the next five years. Additionally, they intend to invest in renewable energy projects that will offset their remaining emissions and make them a net zero company.
Shopify estimates that these efforts will result in a reduction of more than 600,000 tons of CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) per year by 2026—the equivalent of taking 130,000 cars off the road for an entire year! By investing in renewable energy sources and committing to reducing our own emissions, we are helping to fight climate change on two fronts—by decreasing our own impact and helping to create a bigger market for renewable energy sources.
