Carbon Reduction Programmes

What is a Carbon Reduction Programme?

Through our partnership with Ecologi we have invested in a range of carbon reduction programmes that cover:

Wind Turbine

Renewable energy wind turbines

Deforestation

Preventing deforestation

Biomass Power

Biomass power

Carbon Reduction Programmes Carbon Reduction

Ecologi only support projects that are able to evidence that they are reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and are certified at the very highest level by Gold Standard or the Verified Carbon Standard. Their funding strategy is guided by a Climate Committee and follows their Project Drawdown framework.

Onshore wind turbines generate electricity at a utility scale, comparable to power plants. They replace fossil fuels with emissions-free electricity.

Today, 314,000 wind turbines supply nearly 4 percent of global electricity, and it will soon be much more. In 2015, a record 63 gigawatts of wind power were installed around the world.

Onshore wind farms have small footprints, typically using no more than 1 percent of the land they sit on, so grazing, farming, recreation, or conservation can happen simultaneously with power generation. What’s more, it takes one year or less to build a wind farm—quickly producing energy and a return on investment.

Biomass feedstock can replace fossil fuels for generating heat and electricity. Biomass energy is a “bridge” solution—one that can help the world transition from fossil-fuel power to 100 percent clean, renewable energy.

Carbon-rich biomass can be harvested to produce heat, create steam for electricity production, or be processed into oil or gas. Doing so trades in carbon that is already in circulation, cycling from atmosphere to plants and back again. Biomass energy is a true solution only if it uses appropriate feedstock, such as waste from mills and agriculture or sustainably grown perennial crops.

In their biomass and soil, forests are powerful carbon storehouses. Protection prevents emissions from deforestation, shields that carbon, and enables ongoing carbon sequestration.

In 2015, there were an estimated three trillion trees in the world. More than 15 billion trees are cut down each year. Since humans began farming, the number of trees on earth has fallen by 46 percent. Carbon emissions from deforestation and associated land use change are estimated to be 10 to 15 percent of the world’s total.

The benefits of forest conservation include biodiversity protection, non-timber products, erosion control, pollination, ecotourism and other ecosystem services.

FAQS

Everything you need to know about our mission to improve our business and help our planet.

Can’t find the answer you were looking for? please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly team.

At the end of every month, we calculate how much carbon has been generated by all the deliveries carried out by users of the platform. Our solution tells us how many delivery miles have been made. Our team then calculate how much carbon DeliveryApp has generated each month. Working with Ecologi, they then tell us how much we need to invest to offset this amount.

Ecologi publish retirement certificates each month which evidence how many tonnes of CO2 have been prevented from going into the atmosphere. Ecologi only buy carbon credits that meet industry-leading carbon standards – primarily the Gold Standard, but also the Verified Carbon Standard.

Trees are one of the best tools we have in removing carbon pollution from our atmosphere. However for the purposes of our carbon reporting we do not take into account the trees we have planted. This is because the process of “carbon offsetting” must be carried out using verified carbon credits – and not with approximations of carbon sequestered by trees in our tree-planting sites. DeliveryApp believes in delivering a better future, and so we invest in planting trees now for a better tomorrow.

Our ultimate aim is to be an all-electric platform with zero vehicle emissions. We want to see our fleet move to emission free vehicles as quickly as possible, but we know that existing technology and infrastructure makes this difficult for our industry today. In the meantime, drivers are paid a higher rate per mile if they use electric or hybrid vehicles.

At the end of every month, we calculate how many deliveries we have made and we purchase the equivalent number of trees via Ecologi.
