After one customer asked to me about sustainability and what measures we are taking to reduce impact on environment, i decided to write an article explaining how Spainbox and how couriers like UPS, Fedex and Correos Express have a compromise or help to reduce impact on environment reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
Biodiesel is environmentally friendly and biodegradable. Biodiesel combustion generates less air pollutants such as particles, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrocarbons, and air toxics than petroleum diesel fuel, which is refined from crude oil. When a gallon of biodiesel is burned, nitrogen oxide emissions may be somewhat greater than when a gallon of petroleum diesel is used.
FedEx stated that by 2040, its entire parcel collection and delivery fleet would be zero-emission electric vehicles, as part of its aim to make its global operations carbon-neutral.
It was announced that the business will invest $2 billion on vehicle electrification, renewable energy, and carbon sequestration.
FedEx stated that it will replace current cars over the following 19 years. It claims that by 2025, half of all FedEx Express global pickup and delivery purchases will be electric, with the number growing to 100% by 2030.
FedEx is slated to be the first firm to get GM’s EV600 vans, with the first cars expected to arrive in late 2021.
How the UPS Carbon Neutral shipment program works.

ISO 14001 is the principal management system standard which specifies the requirements for the formulation and maintenance of an EMS. This helps to control your environmental aspects, reduce impacts and ensure legal compliance.
In addition Spainbox recycle all packaging received and recycle using Solemccor, a local company that every week pick up, avoiding to waste more than 1 ton by year of cardboard.
In Spain, all recyclable paper, cardboard, and paperboard products are banned from disposal by the Spanish government.
In today’s economy, businesses and institutions recycle items like cardboard because it often saves them money on waste disposal costs. Recycling is also good for the planet and local communities because it helps conserve valuable resources, reduces pollution from production of new materials, and creates jobs. Some large generators of cardboard can bale or compact it, and market it directly to recyclers to receive revenue for this material.
