Carbon accounting in the international moving community has finally taken hold. And there’s no time to wait because, as we know, worldwide relocation can be rough on Mother Nature. For a move, we need to ship on cars, trains, port facilities, and planes, and we, along with the customer, despite our efforts to minimize this impact, create a lot of waste. For many years, Arpin has been a leader in recognizing the sustainability story and both measuring and reducing the numbers. But we remain part of the problem.

So, we are happy to see that in 2024, this issue has jumped up to a major industry focus and challenge. A well-known moving organization based in Europe has grabbed the lead in providing the right platform for its members to fully carbon-account its operations. Including all suppliers. While providing guidance to us on being as comprehensive and complete as possible.
