How dlivrd is Leading the Way in Eco-Friendly, Sustainable Delivery Practices

Nowadays, where environmental concerns are at an all-time high, businesses in the delivery industry are feeling the heat to reduce their carbon footprint and adopt sustainable practices. As a white-label delivery service provider, dlivrd is committed to leading the way in the pursuit of eco-friendly solutions. In this article, we will discuss the measures we are taking to promote sustainable delivery practices, with a focus on our technology.

“Sustainability has become a significant factor in consumer choice, with more than 80% of people expecting businesses to offer eco-friendly options across a broader range of product categories.”

Why Sustainable Delivery Practices Matter

Sustainable delivery practices are becoming increasingly important in the delivery industry as companies grapple with the challenge of meeting the growing demand for e-commerce while minimizing their environmental impact. According to a recent survey conducted by Accenture, 60% of consumers consider a company’s environmental impact when making a purchase. This means that delivery companies that prioritize sustainable practices are not only appealing to eco-conscious customers but also positioning themselves for long-term success.


In addition to meeting consumer demand, implementing sustainable delivery practices can have significant benefits for delivery companies. By optimizing their delivery routes and using more energy-efficient vehicles, companies can reduce their operational costs and improve their bottom line. For example, UPS has found that implementing a “no-left-turn” policy in its delivery routes has saved the company an estimated 10 million gallons of fuel and reduced CO2 emissions by around 20,000 metric tons per year.

The younger generations are particularly environmentally conscious when it comes to their purchasing decisions, making sustainable delivery practices all the more relevant for modern delivery and technology operations. A survey by McKinsey & Company found that 70% of Gen Z consumers are willing to pay more for sustainable products, while 66% of millennials are willing to do the same. Moreover, Cone Communications found that 92% of millennials believe that businesses should be actively working to address environmental and social issues.


With the demand for sustainable products and services on the rise, delivery companies that prioritize sustainability can not only appeal to eco-conscious customers but also benefit financially in the long run. By leveraging technology and innovative solutions, delivery companies can reduce their carbon footprint and establish themselves as responsible corporate citizens.

Our Partnership with Ecologi

Our partnership with Ecologi is a key aspect of our commitment to sustainability. Ecologi, a certified B Corp and environmental organization, helps us fund reforestation projects and offset carbon emissions generated from delivery operations. Since 2022, we have funded 10,000 trees and avoided 872 tonnes of CO2 equivalent. We also aim to align with partners sharing our values and monitor and mitigate any environmental implications of our operations. Our Ecologi profile can be viewed here.

Innovative Technologies for a Greener Delivery Process

Renewable Energy and Sustainable Packaging

As we strive to make our delivery process more sustainable, we are also mindful of the needs of consumers. According to a survey conducted by Accenture in 2023, while 17% of consumers prioritize environmental concerns, a majority of 55% prioritize practical green solutions. Our "eco-essential innovation" approach aims to make sustainability the default choice, allowing us to reach a wider audience and promote widespread decarbonization while also providing consumers with durable, multifunctional, and affordable products that are simpler and more sustainable for everyday use. We believe that by working towards these goals, we can create a better future for ourselves and for generations to come.

Overcoming Challenges and Embracing Sustainability

Of course, businesses that adopt sustainable practices reap numerous benefits, including attracting environmentally conscious customers and reducing costs associated with waste and energy usage. However, all these come with challenges, such as initial investment costs for green technologies, navigating regulatory standards, and even educating consumers.

At dlivrd, once again, we recognize and address these challenges by partnering with eco-friendly suppliers, conducting thorough environmental audits, and investing in training and upskilling our staff to support green initiatives. We believe that adopting sustainable delivery practices not only benefits the environment but also offers economic and social advantages. By utilizing resources efficiently, we can achieve long-term cost savings, boost our brand image and customer loyalty, and contribute to global sustainability goals and community well-being.


Businesses in the delivery industry are encouraged to explore and adopt sustainable practices. Our success in reducing carbon emissions and promoting eco-friendly solutions demonstrates the potential benefits of embracing sustainability. By implementing similar strategies and technologies, businesses can contribute to a greener future and gain a competitive edge in the market.
