Carbon Offset Guide
This guide will explain some of the key use cases for the Carbon Offset API and teach you how to offset the emissions from your EasyPost parcel deliveries.
The Carbon Offset API allows you to calculate the carbon emissions from parcel delivery and the price to offset those carbon emissions for that shipment. Then, you can purchase the carbon offset from EasyPost when you buy the shipment. You will use a new "carbon_offset" parameter when creating and purchasing the shipment. All other steps for creating and purchasing a shipment are the same. If you don't know how to create a shipment, we recommend completing our Getting Started Guide before starting our Carbon Offset Guide.
