An Post tackles climate change head on

An Post has announced that all its deliveries in Dublin City Centre will be zero emission by the end of this year.

The initiative is part of the company’s ‘Post Eco’ plan to eliminate carbon emissions by 2050.

Under the Plan, An Post will also deliver: zero emission postal deliveries in Cork, Galway, Kilkenny, Limerick and Waterford by year end 2020; 750 Electric Vehicles (delivery vans and cycles) to replace urban fleet by 2022, 200 of which will be on the streets this year.

Altogether, initiatives being introduced in 2019 will save 1,000 tonnes of carbon annually.

Announcing the Plan, Minister Bruton said:

“We must step up Ireland’s response to climate disruption. It is vital that every aspect of our society seek ways to reduce their carbon impact and the public service and our semi-state bodies must be the first to show that it takes policies for sustainability seriously, if we are to persuade the rest of society to make the step changes which we need to make.”

An Post CEO, David McRedmond said:

“As An Post moves from the old world of mail to the new world of e-commerce, sustainability has to be the guiding principle for the business. An Post is transforming for generations to come: as a major employer with a huge fleet footprint, this demands responsible climate action with this commitment to carbon-free delivery.”

An Post will be this years host of WMX Europe which will take place in Dublin from 17-18 June, for more information on the event please visit www.wmxeurope.com
