Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 6, 2008
1-800Courier.com, a leading provider of nationwide courier services and logistics solutions has gone "Green." This commitment to the environment is not often seen as a key responsibility to many businesses, which is why 1-800Courier's acceptance as a CarbonfreeTM partner with Carbonfund.org is a refreshing approach to corporate responsibility.
1-800Courier.com provides a variety of express delivery and local courier solutions for customers across the nation. As a new service brand, 1-800Courier.com has enlisted trained messenger delivery partners who ensure reliable delivery of same day packages. Now a CarbonfreeTM partner, 1-800Courier.com offsets the carbon used by their delivery partners. Packages are delivered on the same day and on time, while the impact on the environment is minor.
Carbonfund.org is a non-profit organization that champions against global climate change. Their carbon input programs make it easy and affordable for any individual, small business or large organization to eliminate their environmental impact. Their ultimate goal is to ensure a clean energy future by taking the appropriate steps today. To qualify as a CarbonfreeTM partner, 1-800Courier is required to balance all carbon emissions from vehicles with purchased carbon offsets from Carbon Fund.
1-800Courier.com is eager to impact the nationwide courier industry by establishing standards such as using bike messengers when possible and compensating for vehicle emissions by purchasing carbon offsets from Carbonfund.org. In addition, 1-800Courier has instituted changes such as an improved online order entry program and an automated partner management delivery system, both eliminating the need for printing.
"Our commitment to the environment is a driving force in how we conduct our business," said Mark McCurry, President of 1-800Courier.com. "At 1-800Courier, we are changing behaviors and attitudes about the environment...one package at a time."
