Japan International Movers Association Launches Sustainability Effort
Tuesday, 12 October 2010
At this year’s International Association of Movers Annual Meeting, the Japan International Movers Association (JIMA) donated to support Carbonfund.org’s third-party validated carbon reduction projects. Collected from JIMA members to improve the organization’s sustainability initiatives, JIMA is making a concrete step to reduce its carbon footprint. By joining a growing movement of transportation companies and organizations, JIMA is showing the importance of protecting the climate in the transportation industry. Carbon offsetting is a valuable solution in industries, including transportation. That is why we’ve seen leadership from companies like JetBlue, Virgin America, Hyundai Motor America, Volkswagen and Orbitz. Many companies in the industry are also taking the lead to improve fuel efficiency by researching new fuel sources, engine designs and traffic patterns.
