Why does a reverse logistics tech company care about a sports arena? We agree with the goals of the Climate Pledge: being net zero carbon by 2040. We agree that companies need to commit to regular reporting, carbon elimination and credible offsets. Those 200 companies who have already signed the Climate Pledge? That’s our tribe. As a relatively small company OnePak is nearly already there.
Just as OnePak minimizes carbon emissions and offsets all transportation emissions with credible carbon removal offsets, so does this new arena. As OnePak transitions from single-use to reusable packaging for asset recovery, the Climate Pledge Arena is eliminating single-use plastics. Everything that OnePak transports will be reused, refurbished or recycled, so we celebrate the repurposing of the historic roof originally built for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair.
We love the meaning behind naming such a public place for such a socially important ambition. Yes, fulfilling the pledge is environmentally impactful, but at OnePak, we lead by example. So building a public gathering place that will remind and inspire every visitor and every event viewer that such ambitions can be accomplished—that’s leadership.
Hats off to the Climate Pledge Arena and to the sheer will that it has taken to get it done right.
