“At Ware2Go, our goal is to build merchant relationships based on shared values. Sustainability is a key brand initiative for many of our clients and for Ware2Go as well,” said Patrick Cadic, Ware2Go Chief Revenue Officer, “Our priority was to make our Carbon Offset Shipping Network easy to adopt and simply part of doing business with Ware2Go. That’s why we’ve chosen to fully fund the initiative and to automatically enroll all of our current and future clients so they can extend their sustainability efforts all the way to their customers’ doorsteps.”
Pachama and Ware2Go’s analysts will work together to determine the monthly carbon emissions in metric tonnes of all shipments across Ware2Go’s network. Based on these emissions, Ware2Go will purchase the appropriate number of carbon credits on their clients’ behalf. Through a diverse portfolio of projects they will use carbon credits to restore vital ecosystems, prevent deforestation of old-growth forests, and transition working forests to sustainable forests with mature trees that are capable of sequestering a high volume of CO2.

But we’re determined to leave nothing behind but our legacy of honesty, humility and hustle. The fact that Ware2Go has made this initiative universal across their network has deepened our partnership, which is based not only on a shared commitment to the growth of our business but also on the pursuit of the most ethical practices. Ware2Go has made it easy for us to achieve both carbon neutrality and 2-day shipping, which are both very important to us and our customers.”
“Partnering with Ware2Go made sense from the start,” said Pachama co-founder and CEO Diego Saez Gil. “Pachama is using AI to democratize carbon offsetting in the same way that Ware2Go is using machine learning to simplify the supply chain for businesses of all sizes. Together we’re lowering the point of entry on sustainability so that any business can make a positive impact.”
