Carbon-neutral delivery

James Chin Moody, Sendle CEO / co-founder

Parcel delivery doesn't have to cost the earth

  • Sendle1 is a 100% carbon-neutral parcel delivery service and certified B Corporation2 that uses the excess capacity of large courier networks such as DHL to provide convenient services. It started as a delivery service for James's first business TuShare – a circular economy marketplace created to keep useful things out of landfills.
  • Consumers are increasingly shopping online - the volume of goods being moved is expected to triple from 2015 to 20503 – but delivery is carbon intensive, with wider transport already accounting for 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions4 and the amount of gas due to mobility expected to increase by two-thirds by 20503.
  • Through its partnership with South Pole, Sendle offsets the emissions of every parcel it collects and delivers by supporting environmental projects, like distributing clean energy stoves in India or protecting Peruvian rainforest.
  • Since 2014, Sendle has offset the carbon for delivery journeys totaling over six-billion kilometers. In 2018, it launched a two-day delivery guarantee for retailers selling on eBay5.
  • Sendle has been named both highest-rated6 and most sustainable7 courier in Australia. James is a sustainable innovation expert and author; co-chairs a World Economic Forum technology panel8; has given a TedX talk9, and was a regular panellist on ABC's The New Inventors.
