In the current context commercial electric vehicles are way too expensive to afford for small to medium size companies. Which is not economical as most of them are with a limited range of mileage. Infrastructure is still not in place for long hull journeys.
On average a courier would cover 250 miles per day none of the commercial large vans can cover that range. At least for the next two – Five years, this will not happen.
At this moment we would like to invite you to be part of our journey and make it your corporate responsibility to contribute towards offsetting your own carbon footprint.
How to offset the carbon footprint?
In the current context businesses who offset carbon footprint tend to do it by investing towards a woodland trust or forest conservation trust.
As of today, only a very few same day courier companies can be label as Eco-friendly couriers.
Unlike a few other transport providers, we would take a different approach by offsetting via the below programs:
- Educational programs
- Soil conservation and land management
- Fuel efficient wood-burning stoves
- Solar panels
- Investment into green energy projects
We are dedicated to the principles of sustainability demonstrated through our continued CarbonNeutral programs.
According to the global assessment, an average of around 25% of flora and fauna are under threat. In figures around a million species now face extinction within decades.

Clean Cookstove project in Rwanda
Why did we choose the above in a nutshell :
Since the 1980s, pollution has increased worldwide, but it has increased at a much faster pace in regions close to the equator. Research from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill proves this.
Worlds most developing countries are around the equator -poverty, Human resource weaknesses such as adult literacy nutrition, health and education and economic vulnerability. This is why we decided to go with the clean cookstove project.
Cutting fewer trees for firewood, Educational programs, children more time spending at schools and this created opportunities for local communities to preserve biodiversity.
