Use air freight and save the planet!Use air freight and save the planet
An oddity that turned up in a technical meeting today. We are after some power saving thingummies for our business. We get these from China and they can either arrive in five weeks if we get them on a ship or five days if they arrive by air. But in those extra four weeks they would save more CO2 than the air freight would generate.
Which doesn't seem intuitively right and gives us a problem that we are doing this as a green move but it's very difficult to tell people we're being green when we might end up air freighting stuff around the planet. So do we explain this to people or just keep quiet about it?
