Corporate social responsibility is a key component of Xometry’s culture and social mission. Implementing a carbon offset program allows Xometry to expand our reach beyond state lines to allow us to make a global impact.
What is carbon offsetting?
Carbon offsetting is when a company invests in a project that reduces or negates the amount of CO2 released into the environment each time a package is shipped.
The carbon offset program is a small initiative making a big global impact. This chart shows how much carbon has been off-set to-date, and an example of what that impact could look like.
How does it work?
Xometry has partnered with Dot Neutral, an organization that matches businesses with carbon emission offset initiatives including reforestation, renewable energy, capturing harmful gases, and more. Each time a package is shipped from all Xometry divisions including Xometry Supplies, Xometry's Core Services, a Xometry Manufacturing Partner, and Xometry Finishing Services Partner, Dot Neutral charges Xometry a fee and that money is invested into an initiative to reduce or offset the emissions up to 100%.
Which program are you sponsoring?
Xometry is currently sponsoring a wind farm in Texas, with 100% of carbon offsetting dollars going to this initiative.
Will this cost me anything?
There is no charge to our Manufacturing Partners or customers.
