In 2019, Austrian Post once again delivered all domestic mail in a CO2-neutral manner.

03.09.2020 More and more companies are setting themselves ambitious climate targets. By 2030, Austrian Post wants letters and parcels to be completely CO2-neutral delivery. It is well on the way: the company currently has around 1.750 electric vehicles and produces around 1,3 million kilowatt hours of green electricity per year with its own photovoltaic systems on the roofs of the logistics locations. In recent years, Swiss Post has been able to reduce its CO2- Reduce emissions from around 100.000 to 76.000 tons annually. Those emissions that cannot yet be avoided are generated via CO2Certificates that support climate protection projects around the world. 

Climate protection is also a big issue for the furniture giant IKEA: The vehicle fleet is to be converted to e-trucks by 2025, and every customer delivery in Austria CO2-neutral. The new flagship project at Vienna's Westbahnhof will open as early as 2021. Located in the middle of the city and accessible car-free, the furniture store with its green facades, solar panels, trees and beehives on the roof should be pioneering in terms of sustainability. And by 2030, IKEA wants to become “climate-positive” at all through a complete changeover to a circular economy based one hundred percent on clean, renewable energy and regenerative resources.
