VMP Partners with UPS for Carbon Offset / Green Initiative Program

As a Result of a VMP Donation Per Shipment, UPS Purchases Certified Carbon (CO2) Offsets to Give VMP a Way to Balance Out the Emissions Produced by the Transportation of its Shipments

STEVENSVILLE, Md., May 12, 2011 - Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the commercial, residential, CI, security, and pro audio/video markets, is proud to announce that it has partnered with United Parcel Service (UPS) for its Carbon Offset program. Every package VMP ships via UPS will earn a carbon credit that goes directly towards the UPS green initiative.


"VMP is conscious of protecting the environment, and we are doing our part to help," said Tony Pelura, VMP director of marketing/business development. "The UPS Carbon Offset initiative is a wonderful program as it allows its customers to reduce its carbon dioxide (CO2) impact while demonstrating a commitment to sustainability. We are proud to be a part of the program."

As a result of a VMP donation per each domestic, international, and air freight shipment, UPS purchases certified carbon (CO2) offsets with those funds to give its customer a way to balance out the emissions produced by the transportation of its shipments. According to UPS, it has supported projects that include reforestation, landfill gas destruction, wastewater treatment, and methane destruction. The UPS carbon neutral shipping option allows its customers to demonstrate their commitment to reducing climate impact, and enables the customer and the package recipients to share in that commitment.
