100% environmentally compensated freight with Shiplink

All freight booked with Shiplink is environmentally compensated. We work for difference and have therefore started a collaboration with the company Tricorona Partners for environmental compensation. We see this as an important step in reducing the environmental impact and driving development for the climate-smart freight of the future!

What does 100% climate-compensated shipping mean?

Climate compensation means financing a measure outside one's own operations. This measure will lead to a reduction in emissions that is equal to the emissions for which you compensate. It can be likened to paying someone to take care of one's waste, while at the same time being able to reduce and sort the waste yourself, a final handling of the waste cannot be avoided.

There are different types of emission reduction initiatives that are used for climate compensation. The most common projects are installation of renewable electricity generation (to avoid strongly climate-impacting coal power), energy-saving investments, planting or conservation of forest.

The climate project contributes to these global goals

In addition to a reduced climate impact, the climate project also contributes to the UN Development Program (UNDP). The project is currently available in 170 countries to eliminate poverty, reduce inequalities, promote peaceful communities and support countries to reach the "Global Goals" by 2030.

What are the "Global Goals"?
On September 25, 2015, the UN member states adopted Agenda 2030, a universal agenda that accommodates Global Sustainable Development Goals. The 17 global goals in turn have 169 sub-goals and 230 global indicators. More information about the "Global Goals" can be found at Globalamalen.se.

Selected Project - Sri Balaji, India

897/5000
Biofuels - Sri Balaji power plant in India uses renewable agricultural waste from the local region as fuel. The power plant is connected to the electricity grid and thereby contributes with green electricity. Coal is the most common energy source in the country and the use of agricultural waste at Sri Balaji reduces CO2e emissions by approx. 29,000 tonnes per year.

As the power plant is driven by organic waste from the region, the project contributes to improved climate impact both locally and globally. It also provides an additional source of income for the local population as Sri Balaji buys the agricultural waste from the local farmers. Sri Balaji is certified as both CDM and Gold Standard.

Carbon dioxide reduction: 29,000 tonnes of CO2e. per year
