YRC Worldwide Introduces 'Green Balance Calculator'

YRC Worldwide has launched what it calls the Green Balance Calculator. Developed in partnership with Sustainable Travel International (STI), the calculator is an optional tool customers can use to help offset emissions associated with their shipments via certified carbon offset projects.

The Green Balance Calculator evaluates eight transportation activities that produce or influence carbon emissions, including: fuel, rail miles, air miles, electricity, hotel nights, employee commuting, rental car miles and employee reimbursed miles. YRC Worldwide is the only less-than-truckload transportation provider to partner with customers on improving environmental sustainability through the use of such a tool.

Use of the Green Balance Calculator is available with a tax-deductible charitable donation to a carbon offset project portfolio through STI. Contributions support clean energy, energy efficiency and forestry projects, while supporting environmental sustainability and helping to offset CO2 emissions. Customers have a variety of carbon offset options to choose from, all of which are certified by internationally recognized standards such as the Gold Standard through STI and its partners.
