South Bend-based Logistick Inc. has announced it is now operationally carbon neutral. The freight securement systems company is celebrating its 30th anniversary by partnering with the Mamoni Valley Preserve, a nonprofit that supports the conservation of the Mamoni Valley Rainforest in Panama.
Logistick says it has contracted with MVP to offset its operational carbon footprint until 2050 by leasing a 546-acre tract of rainforest in the global biodiversity hotspot.
“Logistick strives to be stewards of the environment and we couldn’t be happier to partner and help preserve the Mamoni Valley Rainforest,” said Ashley Brickley, chief executive officer of Logistick. “For 30 years we have been reducing waste in the transportation and shipping world, and now we can emphatically say – we are operationally carbon neutral.”
Logistick says it aims to lead the freight and load securement industry in sustainability practices by reducing landfill waste and helping mitigate climate change.
Logistick says it will release it’s 2020 Sustainability Report in June.
