Carbon Calculator

Working towards a better future.

We believe that we should move towards a more sustainable industry and so we have developed a Carbon Calculator to give all our clients a measurement on their carbon output for each shipment. We easily roll this up to give monthly, quarterly or annual reports, making it easier to see what action is needed to take to limit your impact.

Accurate measurements for meaningful results

Before you can look to reduce your carbon emissions, you first need to measure them. In order to get the most accurate results, we look at the origin and destination, types of transport used, size and weight of the shipment.

We can then use this data to calculate your CO2 output and we validate carbon based on Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG) Verification. This is available in the Leda platform for all our clients free of charge.

A single source for information

Climate should be on everyone’s mind and should be a part of everyone’s considerations for shipping, along with speed and cost. Having all your tracking information and carbon output data in one place makes it easier to see the impact you are making and take action to reduce or offset this.

We are able to backdate shipping data in our carbon calculator for 2 years to give you a more accurate representation of your carbon output.

Make a positive impact

We have partnered with Planet Mark, who will be supporting us in measuring and reducing our carbon footprint. As part of this partnership, we will be reducing our carbon emissions, and we want to share this journey with our clients and community to encourage others to take climate action.

Through The Planet Mark we are protecting an acre of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. We are also helping the Eden Project – an educational charity that connects us with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.
