Going carbon neutral

Eastern is committed to helping our customers thrive. That’s why we’ve renewed our partnership with Terrapass—to neutralize our carbon footprint and keep freight shipping safe and sound into the future.

We’re all witnessing the symptoms of climate change right now. Coastal regions in particular are being increasingly affected as sea levels rise and weather patterns become more unpredictable. These kinds of environmental changes threaten transportation routes and disrupt day-to-day business operations.

We are committed to preserving critical ocean and land shipping routes by funding proven environmental initiatives that will mitigate our impact on climate. Our partnership with Terrapass will help preserve our planet, stabilize our climate, and protect the futures of our customers.

We’re happily volunteering to track and minimize our carbon footprint. We do so by first calculating our annual energy usage and travel miles. That helps us determine how much we must donate to support the work of Their work, in turn, neutralizes the carbon emissions our work creates.

We currently support the Klawock Heenya Forestry Project in Alaska through Terrapass, verified by the American Carbon Registry. This initiative protects 8,600 acres of forest on Prince of Wales Island, including 1,000 acres of old-growth forest, preserving biodiversity and ensuring the long-term health of the ecosystem.
