Dailycsr.com – 04 February 2020 –On January 17, 2020, the UPS made an announcement to reveal that the company has launched ebikes, five in Copenhagen, “one in Stockholm and one in Aarhus”. This move forms part of its effort to create better sustainable delivery systems across the globe.
By introducing these “new alternative fuel” options for vehicles, the company has managed to remove three “7.5-tonne diesel delivery vehicles in Denmark and one less diesel delivery vehicle in Sweden” on a daily basis.
In the words of UPS Nordic’s Country Manager, Frank Jørgensen:
“By replacing 240 daily stops of fossil fuel vehicles in Copenhagen, 60 in Stockholm and 50 in Aarhus with eBikes, we are helping to reduce emissions and congestion in city centers. Copenhagen and Stockholm plan to be carbon-neutral cities by 2025 and 2040 respectively, and as a company looking at ways to reduce our carbon footprint, we are proud to be part of this effort. UPS has set itself the ambitious goal to reduce the absolute greenhouse gas emissions of its global ground operations by 12% by 2025. Increasing our use of eBikes is an important part of how we plan to achieve this goal”.
