Kaeser Compressors Joins UPS Carbon Neutral Shipping Program

Kaeser Compressors, Inc. will be a participant in the UPS carbon neutral shipping program, the company announced. The money generated through the program, which will be paid by Kaeser, will be used by UPS to invest in carbon offset programs.

Kaeser will absorb the additional cost of each shipment without passing the fees on to its customers, the company said. “Our products not only operate with exceptional energy efficiency and maximum environmental-compatibility but we also use natural resources as little as possible in production, sales and service,” said Frank Mueller, president of Kaeser Compressors, Inc. “The UPS carbon neutral program is an additional tool for Kaeser to operate more sustainably on a daily basis.”

UPS calculates offsets based on actual shipping activity for envelopes, packages and freight, the parcel service said. UPS’s offset purchases neutralize the calculated carbon impact from shipping by reducing it elsewhere. A certified, market-based financial instrument, carbon offsets are designed to mitigate greenhouse gas emission through reforestation, methane and landfill gas destruction, wastewater treatment and other programs, the company said.
