myGermany goes Green? – myGreen!
Our own way to zero emissions for the world.
How do we act climate-friendly?
At myGermany.com, we are taking a consistent approach to our goal of being climate-friendly. We are using myGreen to transport all parcels for our customers in a CO₂-neutral manner by investing in our environment! myGreen is now included in all international shipments.
Our mission is to reduce logistics-related emissions to zero by 2030! For this reason, we will always offset our (and your) emissions at the end of the year. We support various climate projects to achieve our goals. In this way, we make an active contribution to climate protection.
Through consolidated shipping methods and the use of marginal capacities according to plan, we achieve a sustainable and forward-looking utilization of our shipping processes. We do take advantage of growing train networks for our transport logistics in Europe and around the world.
Already today, myGermany voluntarily offsets the CO2 generated by parcel shipping through the EU-ETS. And we focus on strategic planning of shipping routes and taking advantage of economic conditions (e.g. 30% of containers bound for China are currently empty runs). Additionally, we bundle of numerous parcels to pallets / containers to achieve a CO2 reduction of more than 35% per single shipment.
At the end of the year, we calculate and sum up our CO₂ emission based on the packages we have sent internationally. Currently, we plan with emission of 380 g per ton and kilometer air transport, our average package flies approx 5000km we get 37,5kg CO₂ per package.
The calculation may differ considerably within the framework of the EU legislation on voluntary compensation payments, since Regulation 389/2013 provides the extended legal basis of a Union registry. We do automatic compensation of allowances provided free of charge” on the basis of 2003/87/EC in connection with 2019/1122.
