We’re expanding our Green Delivery fleet to 100 electric cars by the end of 2022.
In January 2020, we launched the eMAG Green Delivery service, based on delivering parcels by 100% electric vehicles, in order to reduce the carbon footprint of our fleet.
19 Nissan E-NV200 vans, each with a capacity of more than 200 parcels and a range of 200 to 300 km, have delivered parcels in Bucharest and Ilfov County. In 2021, the vans covered a distance of 478,800 kilometers. Had these kilometers been travelled by cars running on fossil fuel, 52,668 liters of diesel would have been consumed.
In 2022, we aim to expand our Green Delivery Fleet to 100 cars. If we replaced our entire fossil fuel-powered van fleet with 100 electric vehicles, we would achieve a 72% decrease in emissions from last-mile delivery by our own cars, resulting in 1,647 tons of avoided CO₂ emissions.
And we’re not stopping there. To meet the European target of reducing CO₂ emissions from road transport by 50% by 2030, we will continue to explore the most efficient and sustainable technologies on the market. We will also investigate ways to reduce carbon emissions from heavy-duty transport, so that we can take the lead in this area as well.
