To ensure a cleaner future for the global shipping industry in the 21st century, Shypple has developed sustainable solutions and partnered with environmentally conscious organizations. We invite our customers to join our mission to reduce the carbon footprint and minimize the long-term environmental impact of shipping.
Transparency empowers people to make more sustainable choices when they book shipping through our platform. Thanks to our partnership with SeaRoutes, an GLEC-certified organization, we provide our customers with highly accurate well-to-tank and tank-to-wheel CO2e numbers for each shipment they book.
Shypple partners with ForestNation, a reforestation program that plants trees in the Usambara region of Tanzania to offset carbon emissions. We currently plant trees to offset all our emissions. The emissions even include the ones caused by our employees who commute. We do this the Shypple way: We plant 10x more trees to compensate even faster. We also enable our customers to plant their own carbon offset forests with ForestNation.
Biofuel is a major step towards to reduce the carbon emitted in the shipping industry. Along with GoodShipping, our ambition is to promote the use of biofuels throughout the shipping industry. To avoid that biofuels are transported to each port of departure, we work with the mass-balance principle: We calculate the volume of emissions per shipment and offset it with biofuel on a different route.
