At Lampsy we are passionate about doing the best we can to minimise our impact on the planet. We strongly believe it is our responsibility as a company to be transparent with our customers and to be constantly challenging ourselves to do better.

Carbon Neutral Delivery

In 2018, we set ourselves a challenge to make all deliveries 100% carbon neutral by the end of 2020.

In 2019, we increased our carbon neutral deliveries from 7% to 35%.

As of August 2020, all deliveries are now 100% carbon neutral, including deliveries that are dispatched directly from our suppliers.

How does it work?

We calculate the CO2 emissions for every delivery based on the weight and distance travelled. We use the courier tracking data to calculate road distances between each of the scanned tracking points in your orders journey.

Where the tracking data isn't available, we take the straight line distance between the Lampsy fulfillment centre and your delivery address and multiply this by an uncertainty factor of around 1.5.

We ensure deliveries are always offset by rounding up the values we use in the data model and overestimate emissions.

Some of our couriers offer carbon neutral deliveries. We use this service where available and in 2019, we increased our carbon neutral deliveries from 7% to 35% by preferring these services when available. We'll continue to support our couriers carbon neutral programs in addition to over offsetting, thatway we can ensure carbon negative impact.

Carbon Neutral Website & Technology

Google Cloud

Since 2018, the Lampsy website has been hosted on the Google Cloud platform. Google matches 100% of the energy consumed with renewable energy. To find out more about this scheme, visit: https://cloud.google.com/sustainability/

Back-end Systems

Most of our backend systems that power our operations also run on the Google Cloud platform. Some of our systems only run on Microsoft Windows Server. These services are hosted on Microsoft Azure. Microsoft commits to making these data centres powered by 100% renewable power by 2025. In the meantime, Lampsy is looking into offsetting these CO2 emissions with verified carbon credits.
