New initiative will offset emissions by funding renewable energy production
17 February 2022. Dublin—ESW (formerly eShopWorld), the world’s leading global direct-to-consumer (DTC) ecommerce company, today announced that it will provide 100% carbon neutral shipping to its clients, which include Gucci, Kering, Abercrombie & Fitch,
LK Bennett, J. Crew, and other leading brands. The carbon neutral promise extends beyond just transcontinental air freight to include first, middle, and last mile deliveries.
ESW’s offsets will be achieved through the funding of renewable energy production by supporting EcoAct-verified wind farm projects.
“ESW is proud to offer our retail and brand clients the ability to be at the forefront of sustainable shipping and contribute to a more positive future for the environment,” said ESW CEO Tommy Kelly. “As cross border ecommerce continues to elevate economies all over the world, we must ensure that what’s good for business is also good for the planet. We know that these offsets create a high level of value for our clients and, in turn, their consumers.”
“We know that our consumers as well as our internal stakeholders value every effort made to help the environment,” said Zoe Donovan Digital & Marketing Director of LK Bennett. “Being able to provide sustainable deliveries through ESW’s carbon offsets are just one of the many reasons they are such a vital partner to our brand.”
“ESW’s sustainable deliveries enable us to create a high level of value for our consumers as well as our internal stakeholders,” said Dan Stenson, Business Director of Catbird NYC. “Sustainability is very much a core value for Catbird, and we’re thrilled to work with ESW, a vendor that puts sustainability at the forefront of their business. Offsetting the carbon emissions from shipping is a big step toward helping to leave the planet in a better place than it is today.”
Brands partnering with ESW can enter new international markets in as little as six weeks, up to six times faster than if they attempted to do so on their own – all while engaging directly with customers and retaining ownership of all the data collected during the shopping process.
