Valley Forge Fabrics Undertakes Carbon Neutral Shipping
May 7, 2012-- Home Textiles Today,
FT. LAUDERDALE, FLA. - Valley Forge Fabrics is implementing UPS' carbon neutral shipping program to reduce its impact on the environment.
Every package Valley Forge ships with the global package delivery company will automatically include UPS' carbon neutral shipping option, which is based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the most widely used international standard for carbon accounting and reporting.
"Shipping is one of the company's largest emissions sources and makes up 95% of all the company's green house gases," according to Valley Forge Fabrics.
Last year, through participation in the GSA Green House Gas Emissions Inventory Pilot, Valley Forge committed to reducing its CO2 emissions by 2% by 2012.
