While Xometry’s everyday mission is to provide quality custom parts and manufacturing services for customers around the world, we are also dedicated to giving back to the community. Since the company was founded, Xometry employees have given their time to community service initiatives through the Xometry Gives Back program. Employes have served at local soup kitchens and for Habitat for Humanity in Lexington, KY; Bethesda, MD; Gaithersburg, MD; and Jackson, TN.

In 2020, we at Xometry knew that, as a business, we wanted to expand our corporate social responsibility program beyond our geographic borders. Company executives came together and decided to implement a carbon offsetting program, allowing Xometry to reduce or 100% offset the business’s carbon output.

Xometry is partnering with Dot Neutral, a company dedicated to connecting businesses with carbon offset initiatives including reforestation, renewable energy, and capturing harmful gasses. Each time a package is shipped from a Xometry division, including Xometry Supplies, Xometry Finishing Network, and Xometry Partner Network, Dot Neutral will charge Xometry a fee and that money will be reinvested to reduce or 100% offset our carbon output.

Since starting the carbon offset initiative, Xometry has offset over 450,000lbs of carbon emission. Based on the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, this is equivalent to charging 26,031,439 smartphones or to planting 3,375 seedlings in an urban area over 10 years.

This is just the start of Xometry’s Go Green initiative. To learn more about carbon offsetting and to see Xometry’s impact in real-time, visit our Xometry Goes Green page.
