Rioz Global announces partnership with Carbonmark as part of Climate Strategy
Rioz is partnering with Carbonmark to execute its carbon offset strategy in pursuit of more sustainable distribution services
LONDON, 25th May 2023 – Rioz Global has announced a partnership with Carbonmark to offset carbon emissions associated with its distribution activities.
Carbonmark will be used to enable Rioz to identify, select and retire specific carbon credits that align with Rioz’ priorities per its climate strategy. Carbonmark gives its users access to millions of available carbon credits, and gives them the ability to execute carbon credit retirements immediately and without relying on a third-party.
Rioz Global is a bespoke logistics service that offers freight, warehousing, and fulfillment solutions across the globe. In an increasingly interconnected world, demand for distribution services continues to increase, with this also comes an increased carbon footprint. Alongside making emissions reductions within the business and exploring sustainable freighting solutions, carbon offsetting through platforms such as Carbonmark represents one solution that organizations such as Rioz can use to mitigate the environmental impacts of their services.
To-date Rioz has offset 1,200kg CO2e associated with its operations, with plans to go further with its climate strategy in the future as it further defines its Scope 3 emissions. This tonnage represents a gross over-estimate of actual carbon footprint. In the future, Rioz plans to utilise convenient and affordable options for footprint tracking and until then will remain liberal with estimates and offsetting.
Jordan Sladden, Rioz Global’s Director of Operations, said “There is an important leadership opportunity for SME businesses in the UK to demonstrate how they can participate in climate action. The British Business Bank estimates that our SMEs combined footprint is responsible for around 50% of the UK’s total business greenhouse gas emissions. Meanwhile only a fraction of these businesses are calculating their carbon emissions and establishing climate targets.
“At Rioz, we take our responsibility to the climate seriously, and strive to minimize our negative impact on the world, whilst doing more to learn about the available sustainable solutions for the future of our industry – Carbonmark’s accessibility, transparency and ease of use make it an important part of our journey towards sustainability.”
