Our Way of Giving Back
We clean up after ourselves.
Ecommerce deliveries have a carbon footprint. That's why we support cutting-edge companies that remove carbon from the air.
Alongside Shopify businesses we have…
- Removed thousands of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere
- Provided carbon-neutral shipping on more than ten million orders
Here's how it works: For every order we receive, a formula is used to calculate the estimated shipping emissions. Based on those estimates, a portion of our revenue goes to carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct. Those companies use that money to remove however much carbon our shipments created. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.
Let's meet a few companies removing carbon from the sky with our orders.
Grassroots Carbon helps ranchers modify land management practices to improve soil and ecological health, which captures and stores more carbon in soil.
Mast Reforestation combines proven forestry practices with new technology to regrow healthy, resilient, climate-adapted forests lost to wildfires. Mast’s services include seed collection, seedling cultivation, reforestation services, and financing based on high-quality carbon removal credits.
Partnering with Planet by Shopify
Helping to neutralize shipping emissions
Every time we ship an order, we will support some of the most promising climate solutions on Earth. Each project has been vetted by the Shopify Sustainability Fund, which has committed more than $30 million to these same projects.
How it works
Every month, Planet calculates the total shipping emissions generated by our orders and donates a portion of order revenue. All of this money goes toward carbon removal and ensures that our shipping is carbon-neutral.
