Offsetting our Carbon Footprint

Expak Logistics’ commitment to service extends to our community as a whole, which is why we continue to work with our clients to expand our carbon offset program. 

Over the years, Expak has partnered with Dot Neutral. This organization matches businesses with carbon emission offset initiatives, including reforestation, renewable energy such as solar and wind energy, capturing harmful gases, and more. Expak invests in a series of projects that reduces or negates the amount of CO2 released into the environment each time a package is shipped.

Concurrent with our Mission Statement, Expak is determined to create overall value across all stakeholders, including customers, employees, shareholders, vendor partners, and our surrounding community. 

How it works

We evaluate the following criteria to reasonably estimate the CO2 emissions generated (in kg) for each delivery:

  • The approximate weight of a typical delivery
  • The mileage traveled via Expak vehicles 
  • The type of vehicles utilized to execute such deliveries 

In partnership with our clients, Expak will invest in an equivalent value of green energy initiative(s) to offset our CO2 footprint.

  • Location: Bethel Wind Farm in Castro County, TX
  • Fuel Resource: Wind
  • Project Description: 120 wind turbines manufactured by General Electric Renewable Energy
  • How it works: Each turbine is mounted on top of an 80-meter-tall tower and has a 116-meter, three-blade rotor connected to a generator. Multiple wind turbines are electrically connected in parallel to the main power transformer, where the energy is converted from 34.5kV to 115kV for interconnection.
  • Current Market Cost: $0.0016 per kg
