Carbon neutral in 2021
We are Heroes because we care - this is one of our core values at Delivery Hero. We care for our employees, partners and the communities we operate in, and also for the environment.
To care for the environment means being willing to take action. As one of the leading global online food ordering and delivery marketplaces, we are setting an ambitious goal to be carbon neutral globally by the end of 2021.
We started this journey by making our Berlin headquarters carbon neutral in 2019. In 2020, we achieved carbon neutrality in our European operations and from January 2021 we are carbon neutral in our Latin American operations as well.
Why are we going
Levels of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, are increasing in the atmosphere. This causes global warming, which has dramatic impacts on human well-being and life on earth.
We believe that companies need to be part of the solution to climate change. That's why we take responsibility for the emissions created by our business.
How do we achieve carbon neutrality?
Step 1: Emissions
We calculated the carbon emissions of our offices and deliveries.
Step 2: Offsetting
We offset the emissions by supporting internationally recognized projects, which reduce carbon emissions elsewhere in the world.
Step 3: Reduction
We are identifying areas where we can reduce our emissions by changing behaviours and pursuing new technologies.
