About the initiative
Sustainable mobility is a fundamental part of our emissions reduction strategy. Our actions in this area are based on three pillars:
Electrification of the fleet
We are working on expanding our electric fleet and charging infrastructure, in partnership with leading market players to accelerate the development of logistics in the region.
In 2022, we increased the number of vans, urban freight vehicles, motorcycles, and tricycles by 45%, totaling 797 units. And, in 2022, we launched 210 vehicle charging points in the last mile in Brazil, Chile, and Mexico, with an investment of USD 800,000.
Use of alternative fuels
Another effective way to reduce emissions from our logistics is to use low-emission or renewable fuel sources. Therefore, we invested in the development of a fleet of trucks powered by natural gas, a fuel that emits about 18% less carbon than diesel.
In Brazil, some of the trucks are fueled with biogas, a fuel made from organic waste that has the potential to reduce emissions by up to 100% compared to diesel.
To reduce the emissions of each package we deliver, we rely on route planning and network systems that allow us to assign the most appropriate vehicles in each location.
We invest in real-time driving data measurement systems for our fleet, providing not only safer and faster deliveries but also greater fuel efficiency.
