Carbon footprint refers to the amount of carbon dioxide contributed due to a company’s business operations.

At Ligentia, we have actively reduced our carbon footprint by utilising container space more efficiently during shipments. This also helps our customers to achieve their carbon offset targets.

Carbon offsetting is the process of reducing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions compensate for emissions made elsewhere.

Carbon offsetting methods include afforestation and carbon sequestration, which aim to slow the pace of climate change.
