Here at keepitPromo we are aware that our actions have (as with almost every business) an impact on the environment. Once our products are manufactured they are being delivered by ship, airfreight and by trucks. All of these delivery methods release considerable levels of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere.
We care about the environment and therefore we commit to plant 1 tree for every tone of CO2 that emits in the atmosphere as a result of our business with our customers. We believe that this commitment will help offset the CO2 that was released in the atmosphere as a result of our actions. At the end of each quarter of a year we will purchase and plant trees in Cyprus. However, due to strict restrictions imposed on keepitPromo by the Ministry of Agriculture of Cyprus we are now forced to donate trees to public schools (or other public organizations) to plant them themselves instead of letting our team plant the trees in Cypriot forests as we done so in the past.
We believe in supplying Promotional Gift items in a Responsible and environmentally-friendly manner.
How it works
keepitPromo uses 3 separate formulas to calculate the CO2 emissions. The first formula calculates the volumetric weight of orders with the distance that they travel via AIR. The second formula calculates the weight of the shipment via sea and the third formula calculates the weight and distance via truck. Combined together, we can estimate the offset of CO2 emissions.
In order to estimate how many trees are needed, keepitPromo uses various formulas to calculate the amount of C02 it emits. An example of CO2 offset calculations can be found here http://www.myclimate.org
