Transervice will offer to plant trees in conjunction with your assistance. Every visit, proposal and contract will help fund the purchase and planting of trees. Your tree dedication will be posted on the Transervice website, on your behalf and dedicated to the person or cause of your choice. Transervice has partnered with National Forest Foundation to provide you an opportunity to join us in an effort to improve and restore our embattled planet’s health and resources.
Although environmental regulations in developed countries have reduced the individual vehicle’s emission, this has been offset by an increase in the number of vehicles and increased use of each vehicle. By reducing transportation emissions globally, it is predicted that there will be significant positive effects on Earth’s air quality, acid rain, smog and climate change.
Nearly 30 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions in the United States come from transportation. We need to be aware that as supply chains grow deeper into consumer neighborhoods, via the massive influx of same-day deliveries of products, groceries and now fast foods, the pollution creep associated with that supply chain growth grows, too.
The environmental impact of the supply chain is significant because transportation is a major user of energy, and burns most of the world’s petroleum. This creates air pollution, including nitrous oxides and particulates, and is a significant contributor to global warming through the emission of carbon dioxide. Within the transport sector, road transport is the largest contributor to global warming.
Can we, the supply chain, help to improve the global impact of transportation pollution and begin the process of relief to the environment?
We, supply chain professionals, can have skin in the game of transportation pollution reduction. The global supply chain did indeed shrink the world. And it is up to the global supply chain to be part of the solution in reducing the resulting environmental impact.
Trees and the environment are connected through the ability of trees to sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. When plants synthesize their own food in a process known as photosynthesis, they use carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It is estimated that a healthy, mature tree extracts up to 50 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air. With the increasing rate of deforestation, we are losing a valuable asset that could help in the fight against global warming. Without trees, carbon dioxide levels can continue to rise driving surface temperatures with it, eventually melting the icecaps to cause flooding, worsening weather conditions, prolonged droughts, the rapid depletion of valuable resources & a collapse in local economies.
All these effects underscore the importance of trees and the environment and why both must be keenly preserved and protected from further degradation. Without trees, the environment wouldn’t be the same; once the environment changes, normal living conditions would also cease to exist.
The Transervice goal of planting a million trees during its golden anniversary requires your help. Our program will provide the funding for our national forests reforestation one tree at a time.
