Sustainability and Green Logistics Framework

At Delivery man, we think about sustainability holistically. We benchmark our progress towards our Carbon Neutral mission to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are a global framework for driving coordinated sustainable action.

  1. Clean Logistics

    To significantly reduce the environmental impact for the planet by developing carbon neutral and low-waste offerings – and working closely with our customers and partners on industry solutions.

  2. Thriving Communities

    To improve the lives of people and their communities by providing fair, safe, and inclusive work conditions – across our operations and through sub-contractors

  3. Shared Value

    To create sustained customer value and supply chain resiliency through our products and operations – ensuring to create long-term value for our partners and communities we work with.

  4. Global Partnerships

    In all our key markets, we engage with partners to drive sustainable goals and carbon emission reduction.

Our sustainability strategy is the baseline for our climate actions and carbon reduction measurements in order to create logistics for a sustainable future.

Delivery man’s Sustainability approach

One of the most important topics in today’s business world is sustainability and its overall impact on global carbon footprint as well as company’s business models.

As such, there is a growing awareness in the logistics and transportation industry about the need for achieving the critical balance between global supply chains and ecological as well as economical challenges towards reducing our customer’s overall ecological footprint.

As a leading provider of global logistics and transportation services, sustainability is implemented as a core of our business practices – from Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), to sustainable growth and reducing our carbon footprint as well as developing new products and collaborating with our suppliers and partners. By integrating these principles into every aspect of our business, we are committing ourselves to being a sustainability leader and socially responsible business partner in the global communities we serve.

areas where we want to do our part in driving progress. The sustainability Framework consists of the building blocks Clean Logistics, Thriving Communities, and Shared Value - all supported by Global Partnerships.

Carbon Zero Target

We committed to the goal, continuously investing in innovative transport solutions such as new Renewable Energies, our E-Mobility Fleet and Carbon Neutral Products for our customers. We work closely with Delivery Man vehicle partners and customers in regards to their transport carbon footprint visibility, supply chain optimization and modal shift in order to meet their environmental targets. Before signing up a truck we make sure its carbon emission is below our average.

​We are targeting to reduce the level of carbon emitted to the environment by 20% in Africa. This mere percentage will in turn help reduce the ever-rising temperatures that are in turn drying out water sources in Africa. The prolonged droughts that we currently face in our continent is a result of the effects of these large emissions of carbon majorly from manufacturing and Logistics.

He Is How We Calculate Greenhouse Gas Emission

Greenhouse Gas Emission=DxWxEF
=Distance travelled
W=weight in tones of the truck or Cargo
EF=The Modes specific emissions factor.
Example: greenhouse gas calculation for a truck move

Using the formula from above, let's see a simple emissions calculation example for a truck that travels 1,500 miles ( Distance from Mombasa port to Kisangani in Congo) and its net weight 9T. Determine the total amount of ton-miles. Multiply 1,500 miles times 9 tons, which gives us a total of 13500 ton-miles.
