pakadoo for more sustainability
You can order on the internet from the comfort of your own home. But delivery causes CO2 emissions, especially on the last mile, i.e. the final journey to the customer’s front door. Depending on where the parcel is delivered and how many times the parcel carrier has to make a delivery attempt, the emissions caused can vary quite considerably.
Delivery locations and their CO2 impact:
Doorstep delivery or delivery to the next-door-neighbor causes 277 g CO2.
One pickup after unsuccessful delivery attempt causes 1,057 g CO2.
Bundled delivery of private parcels together with B2B parcels causes 133 g CO2.
Delivery there and pickup by recipient causes 913 g CO2.
* With pakadoo, bundling effects can save over 36% CO2 emissions in parcel delivery (compared to delivery to private households, see study by Prof. Sucky, University of Bamberg).
** Savings per parcel 924 g CO2 compared to unsuccessful delivery attempt and collection from post office branch or parcel store – values certified by myClimate
