Deliveroo offsets 100% carbon emissions

    It’s a service we all love, (and perhaps use a little too much sometimes), but food delivery just got a whole lot better for the environment.

    Deliveroo is now the first food delivery platform in Australia to carbon offset 100% of carbon emissions arising from all deliveries made on the platform.

    This comes at no cost to restaurants or customers.

    Currently, 90% of Deliveroo’s 8000 riders across Australia undertake deliveries on motorised transport.

    “By carbon offsetting all our deliveries for the next two years, the delivery component of our business will become carbon neutral at no cost to our restaurant partners or customers,” says CEO of Deliveroo Australia, Ed McManus.

    Deliveroo anticipates that more than 16,000 tonnes of carbon will be offset over the initial two-year commitment, the equivalent of taking 4609 vehicles off the road.

    “This is an important first step for Deliveroo, but we know there is still much to be done,” continues Mr McManus.

    “We’re committed to ongoing action to achieve environmental sustainability across all our business operations and will seek new ways to make sure Australians can enjoy amazing food whenever and whenever they want in, in a sustainable way.”
