Logistics climate tech firm Pledge adds offsetting service

Source: Pledge

Logistics climate tech firm Pledge has launched a service that will allow forwarders to offer carbon credit offsets to their customers.

The new “Impact Links” solution is white-labelled to allow forwarders to add their own branding. It also includes the company’s recently launched carbon calculator.

It can be embedded on websites, emailed to customers or shared with a QR code.

Carbon credits purchased through Impact Links are selected from one of Pledge’s offsetting portfolios.

These portfolios support various verified carbon removal and avoidance projects, from nature-based carbon dioxide removal (CDR) projects such as reforestation, to CDR technologies, like enhanced weathering.

Pledge handles all aspects of the transaction, including processing payment and issuing a certificate, which customers can use as proof of their purchased offset credits.

The firm’s chief executive, David de Picciotto, said: “Our platform helps freight forwarders gain a competitive advantage by enabling their customers to take action on unavoidable emissions in a way that is simple, reliable, and independently verified.”
