Contributing to Climate Change Countermeasures through Business Activities

Up until now, sending gifts meant going to an actual retail outlet, picking out what to send, then either completing the paperwork for shipping at the retail outlet or a separate courier service or visiting the recipient and delivering your gift in person. In this case, the CO2 emissions involved correspond to the distance the gift is shipped or transported.
For eGifts, since gift-giving is as simple as sending a URL to the recipient’s social media or other account, there’s no physical product to transport, contributing to reduced CO2 emissions from logistics services.

(calculated based on 2020 business performance)

Note: This calculation is based on the average delivery distance of postal items. Also, this assumes a 10-ton diesel truck will be used for shipping, and the improved ton-kilometer method is used for the calculations.

Because giftee’s eGifts don’t require the movement of products, they also contribute to reducing environmental burdens by eliminating the need for wrapping, transport packaging, and other resource usage.
