Fees for each shipment will be paid by Kaeser and invested in carbon offset programs

Kaeser Compressors Inc. is excited to be a participant in the UPS carbon neutral program. Kaeser will absorb the additional cost of each shipment without passing the fees on to customers. The money generated will be used by UPS to invest in carbon offset programs.

Kaeser believes that maintaining the quality of the environment is a shared commitment. “Our products not only operate with exceptional energy efficiency and maximum environmental-compatibility but we also use natural resources as little as possible in production, sales, and service,” said Frank Mueller, president of Kaeser Compressors Inc. “The UPS carbon neutral program is an additional tool for Kaeser to operate more sustainably on a daily basis.”

Reliable offsets begin with accurate carbon calculations, and UPS calculates offsets based on actual shipping activity for envelopes, packages, and freight. UPS’s offset purchases neutralize the calculated carbon impact from shipping by reducing it elsewhere. A certified, market-based financial instrument, carbon offsets are designed to mitigate greenhouse gas emission through reforestation, methane and landfill gas destruction, wastewater treatment, and other programs.
