In 2014, Martin Guitar commited to making every UPS shipment carbon neutral. Martin has chosen carbon neutral shipping to demonstrate and share our commitment to reducing climate impact. Choosing carbon neutral shipping helps Martin balance out the emissions produced by the transportation of our shipments.
Martin has elected to pay an additional carbon neutral fee per package which UPS will use to support projects such as reforestation, landfill gas destruction, wastewater treatment, and methane destruction.
UPS targets Gold Standard, Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS) and Climate Action Reserve (CAR) offsets. To calculate reliable offsets, UPS has a rigorous third-party-verified-and-certified methodology. UPS also addresses each mode of transportation to ensure the right emissions calculations are attached to the right shipments.
