CEND expands environmental commitment through Carbonfree Partnership

October 03, 2022

CEND is more than just moving, it’s a movement!

CEND is committed to improving the moving experience while lessening the impact of the moving industry on the environment.  They partner with individuals and businesses servicing their moving needs and use tech forward solutions for date-certain pickups and deliveries while providing transparency and security to their guests.

The interstate moving industry has a significant impact on the environment and CEND is committed to reducing their carbon footprint through their Carbonfree Small Business partnership.

As a Carbonfree Small Business partner, CEND is able to neutralize their operational emissions annually.

In addition to their Carbonfree Partnership, CEND also

  • Provides their clients with a direct market to market solution that cuts CO2 emissions versus the historical van line by 40%.
  • Manufactures a moving container that is meant to last in the market for a decade and can be totally recycled. The traditional moving industry uses the equivalent of all the trees in central park twice each year building shipping crates that cannot be recycled.
  • Gives their clients the ability to donate anything that they don’t want to move or store. Rather than ending up in a landfill, unwanted items repurposed through resale shops that give back to the community while assisting the environment.

“CEND has embedded our commitment to the environment, social responsibility, and governance into all that we do. We have still not totally figured out a way to eliminate emissions all together as we move people across North America. Until we are carbon neutral, we look forward to partnering with Carbonfund to invest in projects that have a positive impact on the environment,” said Jim Petzel, CEO
