Sustainability Policy

CBIP Sustainability

Becoming Asia’s First Carbon Neutral 4PL Provider by 2022

Our policy is simple: Be part of the solution that supports future generations by taking responsibility for our own actions and understanding their impacts. As a logistics provider, CBIP can itself make a meaningful difference by reducing our environmental footprint - and we’ve worked hard with our partners & customers to do just that. See the details below.

Policy pillars

  • We are all responsible
  • We’re not carbon neutral unless it’s on everything we do - not just the parts everyone else can see
What are carbon emissions and carbon offsetting programs?
  • Carbon Emissions: These come from fuels that produce carbon dioxide (Greenhouse Gasses = GHG). Think fuel/petrol, gasses, electricity, agriculture emissions, and the release of stored carbon from deforestation.
  • Carbon emissions have a negative impact on the earth, which in turn will have a long-term negative impact on our generation, the next generation (our kids), and further generations ahead.
[Sustainability Policy] Policy pillars

We can do two things to help reduce this:

  • Reduce our carbon emissions: through the way we live, work, and act in our day-to-day lives.
  • Offset our carbon emissions: we can do this by calculating our carbon emissions, total this, then work with a sustainability company to either pay for carbon credits or invest in carbon positive projects. CBIP partners with The South Pole to work on initiatives like regenerating precious forests, replacing old equipment with more efficient technology, or even training communities in beekeeping!

We all share the same environment, so when customers and providers understand their impact together, meaningful change can take place.

Our sustainability policy bridges 4 key parties:

  • Suppliers, who can offset their carbon emissions
  • Customers, who can update their practices and be a part of a carbon neutral shipping process
  • Our company and individual staff members, who can lead by example and put sustainability first in their daily lives. They can also educate clients, partners, and more.

Why are we doing it?

  • The logistics industry is one of the largest emitters of Greenhouse Gases — we want to do something about it and spur on positive change.

  • We're conscious that all of us in the CBIP team have families and children, and we want to make a difference for them, so the world is in a better place as they grow up.

  • The Asia Pacific region has few companies putting sustainability first. We feel it’s important to lead by example and create a ripple effect in the industry.

  • Every step matters. CBIP can educate our customers, our suppliers, our staff, and our partners on how we — and they — can help the planet each day.

  • We want to play our part in SDS and, in particular, goals 12 & 13

The climate journey

Does this cost me anything?

Nope! Being sustainable shouldn’t cost you more — we take on the costs with our partners so that we can all share in a greater responsibility together and so customers have the opportunity to make their shipments greener, too.  

How does it work?

Every dollar we invest in offsetting all of CBIP’s activities allows us to support genuinely world-changing initiatives. To find that dollar amount, we calculate the potential CO2 generated by all parcels sent for the previous year, and then invest it via our partner, South Pole.  

Do I have a say in which projects are chosen?

Absolutely! In partnership with South Pole, we can collectively choose different projects focused on regions where CBIP works directly.

How do we report it & show results?
