All domestic ground parcel services are now shipped as carbon-neutral.

OTTAWA — Canadians are now using carbon-neutral shipping when they send parcels by Canada Post’s ground services within Canada.

All domestic regular parcel and expedited parcel ground shipments, as well as Canada Post’s flat rate boxes, are now shipped as carbon-neutral.

For every tonne of greenhouse gas emissions generated by these domestic ground delivery services, Canada Post makes them carbon-neutral by removing one tonne from the atmosphere through the purchase of high-quality, accredited carbon offsets.

Using Canada Post’s “Find a rate” tool, small businesses and consumers can also see the greenhouse gas emissions associated with their deliveries and choose shipping options that best meet their needs and preferences. There is no additional fee for carbon-neutral shipping.
