GreenShip certified New Grass Bison Company is offsetting its customers' climate impact.
Learn how they are doing it.
GreenShip(TM) is a web-based, software-as-a-service system developed by Viritavi Systems, LLC that calculates and tracks the carbon usage of internet, mail-order and commercial shipping transactions.
Using the World Resources Institute's Greenhouse Gas Protocol, GreenShip calculates the carbon credits necessary to offset and balance emissions expended during the shipment.
Through GreenShip, the appropriate carbon credits are purchased on our customers' behalf to fund projects (such as wind power or methane capture from dairy farms) and essentially make physical product shipments carbon-balanced.
Since carbon dioxide emissions are the principle cause of global warming, GreenShip provides technology allowing online merhants to purchase carbon-balancing credits for their customers' product shipments.
Viritavi Systems, LLC was formed with the vision of "Leveraging existing commerce to advance sustainability." The name "Viritavi" comes from the latin words "viridis" (green) and "habilitavi" (enable) - the spirit is to be a "green enabler". The company's first product is GreenShip, a software service than enables carbon-balanced shipping.
