Barcelona-based on-demand delivery startup Glovo has partnered with Pachama, a Silicon Valley-based carbon credit marketplace in a bid to offset carbon emissions from deliveries by motorbikes and cars. Being a company that is committed to tackling sustainability challenges, Glovo intends to offset 100% carbon emissions from procurement to end-of-life products sold via its app by the end of 2021.
Focuses on sustainability!
Initially, Glovo will purchase 30,000 tonnes of carbon credits representing one tonne of carbon dioxide or mass of any other greenhouse gas from Pachama. This will be used for verified forest carbon projects and will offset the carbon footprint by 25% by the end of this year. Glovo has already pledged to purchase carbon credits that will support the FSC-certified Brazil Nut Conservation project in Peru.
