Our contribution to climate protection
Since 2015, we have been delivering all consignments at Quickmail in a climate-neutral manner. By default and at no extra charge for our customers. We offset all CO2 emissions generated by the transport and delivery of items from our depots to the recipients in effective climate protection projects.
We are currently supporting a community-based reforestation project in Nicaragua through our carbon offset partner myclimate. In this reforestation project, small farming families work together to reforest unused parts of their land. Thanks to better use of space and sustainable use of forest resources, the forest area is increased and the quality of life of the community's inhabitants is improved.
We support this climate protection project because …
...as a private postal service provider we believe not only in the future of letterboxes, but also in the medium of paper. Every printed and delivered advertising consignment strengthens Switzerland and creates jobs here - most of the money spent on online advertising goes abroad.
Nevertheless, it is obvious that paper and the protection of the ecosystems that produce this raw material are particularly close to our hearts. That is why we consciously chose a forest protection or reforestation project when selecting a climate protection project. We support this project in particular because, in addition to protecting the environment, it also makes an important contribution to achieving various social and integrative goals.
Overall, the project contributes to twelve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We would like to highlight the following sustainability goals of the project in particular. You can find out which other SDGs the project contributes to directly in the project description of our partner myclimate.
More than US$ 3.9 million is paid to the communities of 855 farming families whose members live on less than US$ 2 per day.
The project creates around 2,000 seasonal jobs per year. 80 % of these jobs are held by landless farmers.
5.3 million indigenous trees were planted. This reforestation of more than 2'971 ha of land is equivalent to over 5'500 football fields and contributes significantly to the regeneration of the habitat and local wildlife.
Good to know!
As a Quickmail customer, you can print the myclimate logo or a label with a QR code on your consignments. The recipients of your consignments can then read how the CO2 emissions are offset. You can find the myclimate logos in the download area.
Please contact us if you would like to know how to apply the logo or label with QR code correctly to your consignments.
