Discover what we’ve accomplished with carbon-neutral shipping


Shipping with a conscience

We’ve offset 42,000 tCO2e (metric tonnes CO2 equivalent) through carbon-neutral shipping with the purchase of verified carbon credits.


Moving in the right direction

These offsets are equal to the emissions generated by 12,867 passenger vehicles.


The results are simply beautiful

Carbon offsets contribute to preserving Canada’s amazing wilderness, like the Great Bear Rainforest and Boreal Forest.

On the road to net-zero, there are many important milestones and we’re getting closer every day.

Reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero

Explore our 2023 Sustainability Report

Canada Post has plotted a route to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across our entire value chain by 2050. The comprehensive approach to achieving net zero includes fleet electrification, retrofitting facilities, sustainable shipping and packaging, less waste and renewable energy. Here's a look at the progress we made in 2023:

  • We continued to take steps in our shift to net-zero emissions by moving to over 90% renewable electricity in Alberta, followed by Saskatchewan in early 2024.
  • We increased the amount of recycled content in our plastic bubble mailers, from 23% to 50%.
  • We added 100 electric last-mile delivery vehicles to our fleet for real-world testing.

Canadians want to protect this great country’s environment for future generations. Here’s how we’re taking action to reduce our environmental impact to deliver a sustainable future.

Carbon-neutral shipping means we are offsetting emissions generated from shipping by purchasing carbon offsets. For every tonne of greenhouse gas emissions generated, we remove one tonne of greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere through carbon offsets.

Carbon offsets negate carbon emissions released into the atmosphere. They are created by projects that reduce or store carbon emissions. Examples include planting forests, carbon capture technology, and conserving natural assets such as peatlands.

We prioritize Indigenous owned or led, Canadian nature-based offset projects. We ensure the quality of these offsets by only purchasing them from recognized, accredited sources supporting projects that have undergone third-party validation.

No! Carbon offsets and carbon-neutral shipping are being used as an additional way to provide more sustainable shipping options for Canadians in the short term, while we work to reduce our own emissions to meet our targets.

Yes, we have targets of 50% reduction in operational emissions by 2030, and net-zero emissions by 2050. Canada Post is one of the first 150 companies globally to have a net-zero target approved by the Science Based Targets initiative.

We are working in partnership with the federal government to establish power purchase agreements for clean electricity in provinces with dirtier grids. These agreements support the development of new renewable energy generation projects in Canada.

We have set a goal to reach zero waste by 2030. Steps taken to achieve this include waste audits, enhanced recycling services, waste education workshops for employees, and investing in water bottle filling stations at key sites across the network.

Scope 3 emissions are indirect emissions that occur outside our operations. These include emissions produced by suppliers to provide us with goods or services, as well as emissions produced by employees commuting to work or travelling for business.

We are developing a detailed strategy to reduce our Scope 3 emissions by 90% by 2050. Initiatives underway include engaging with supply chain partners to reduce their emissions and encouraging environmental sustainability with our employees.
