Blue Dart expands EV fleet to drive sustainability

In a significant stride towards sustainability, Blue Dart has expanded its electric vehicle (EV) fleet, now comprising over 480 two-, three-, and four-wheelers. This strategic integration is set to yield substantial environmental benefits, with an estimated reduction of 15.05 tonnes of CO2 emissions each month.

Blue Dart’s proactive participation as a signatory to the ‘Climate Neutral Now’ (CNN) pledge by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) further underscores its commitment to global climate action. The company’s Sustainability Roadmap highlights initiatives such as planting over 111,000 trees annually, a measure projected to offset more than 13,320 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year once the trees mature.

Balfour Manuel, Managing Director of Blue Dart, emphasised the company’s dedication to sustainable logistics in India. “Blue Dart is driving sustainable logistics in India, paving the path towards a greener future. By integrating electric vehicles into our fleet, we are poised to significantly reduce our carbon footprint and contribute meaningfully to environmental conservation. Our transition to a green fleet demonstrates Blue Dart’s commitment to carbon neutrality and sustainable growth,” he stated.

Blue Dart remains dedicated to delivering innovative solutions while upholding its environmental responsibilities. The adoption of electric vehicles marks a pivotal milestone in its journey towards long-term sustainability objectives, reinforcing its position as an industry leader committed to shaping a cleaner, greener tomorrow.

With these efforts, Blue Dart is not only reducing its carbon footprint but also setting a benchmark in the logistics industry for sustainable practices. The company’s ongoing initiatives highlight a comprehensive approach to environmental stewardship, aligning with global efforts to combat climate change and promote sustainability.
