We do this with a combination of leading-edge technology and decade of expertise in network optimization, modal optimization, empty mile reduction, and more.
Calculating shipment emissions relies on accurate data. Powered by our integration platform RedwoodConnect™, Redwood Hyperion validates for data accuracy, utilizing reliable data and best-in-class standards to ensure we’re providing accurate emissions estimates. We calculate estimates taking guidance by GHG Protocol and are working towards certification with the GLEC framework.
Carbon offsets and removals are mechanisms to compensate for carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions by helping reduce or remove carbon in a different location. While reductions are key to global climate initiatives, what can’t be reduced can be offset as part of a net-zero emissions strategy. Offsetting your carbon footprint is a responsible action you can take to protect the planet, its people, and your brand while we work on long-term emission reduction.
A carbon credit is a transferable instrument that denotes an equivalent emission reduction of one metric ton of CO2. In other words, think of it as the currency for carbon offsets and removals. It is certified by governments or through independent bodies which ensure that the right amount of carbon is being compensated.
Carbon credits or offsets are primarily classified into removal or avoidance credits. Offsets can be comprised of a variety of methodologies from nature-based credits to landfill gas capture and typically include co-benefits to local communities.
The cost of offsetting varies based on project size, scale, timeline, and more. Redwood will work with you to create a custom, flexible plan to make offsetting an accessible option, no matter your company size or budget.
All offsets that are publicly available are registered and tracked by generally accepted and reputable organizations in the voluntary carbon markets and verified by third parties. Gold Standard, the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), the American Carbon Registry (ACR), and other internationally recognized organizations ensure the quality, accuracy, and integrity of the offsets.
Redwood Hyperion takes guidance from the universally accepted GHG protocol to calculate carbon emissions. • Redwood and our sustainability partners are coming together to focus on logistics solutions. • In choosing partners, each has unique value in widening their scope; something purposeful in why Redwood is working with them. • Contact us to hear more about what these partners can offer.
