HUB Promotional Group To Carbon Offset All UPS Shipments
HUB Promotional Group has announced that beginning January 1, 2020, all HPG companies will be carbon offsetting all outbound UPS shipments at no additional cost to the customer. This 100-percent carbon offsetting initiative applies to all shipments utilizing HPG’s contract with UPS. HUB Promotional Group, based in Braintree, Massachusetts, is comprised of suppliers HUB Pen, Beacon, BEST Promotions USA, Cooler Graphics, Debco, BCG Creations, Origaudio and HandStands.
“Through our decision to offset all Hub Promotional Group UPS shipments in 2020, HPG will effectively make more than a quarter-million package deliveries carbon neutral,” says Jing Rong, HPG vice president of sourcing and supply chain.
HPG CEO Chris Anderson adds, “This innovative program furthers HPG’s commitment to environmental sustainability, while offering our distributor partners freight costs that are typically lower than when they ship using their own freight rates. This efficiency is accomplished by leveraging HPG’s North America-wide footprint, and the economies of scale it provides—good news for the environment and good news for HPG customers.”
