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. On January 1, 2020, we achieved carbon neutrality for all our European operations (click here to review our certifications).

Why are we going
carbon neutral?

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. We offset emissions by supporting environmental projects and then identify opportunities to reduce emissions sustainably.

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.

About the project we support

Delivery Hero supports a range of projects by working with ClimatePartner. For example, one of the projects we support is a rainforest protection project in Peru. As part of this project, 400 local families are working together to protect 300,000 hectares of primary forest in the Amazon region.

Our support enables families to receive land rights and sustainable sources of income from, for example, the cultivation of Brazil nuts.
