A report published by the Clean Mobility Collective and Stand.earth in 2022 revealed that up to 50% of total delivery carbon emissions are from the "last mile" of delivery. Until now, not much was known about the final stage of online shopping, which is called "last-mile delivery".

Last-mile delivery is the part of the shipping process when packages are sent from the warehouse to people‘s homes. This distance isn‘t always a mile. Lastmile delivery accounts for up to half of all delivery vehicle carbon emissions. Delivery vans make millions of short trips every day. And that number continues to rise. A zero emissions future can seem out of reach.

We know the clock is running out to change our future. Corporations must commit to achieving 100% zero emissions by 2030Companies like Amazon must recognize the adverse impacts of last mile delivery. These companies need to #DeliverChange instead of more emissions. Stand.earth, in coalition with the Clean Mobility Collective launched Charge the Streets to pressure decision makers and push for more ambitious timelines.

AMAZON: On Their Way to Zero Emissions but Running Late

While Amazon has made efforts to position itself as a sustainable leader, there’s still work to be done to match their actions with their words. As one of the largest emitters of carbon emissions among logistic companies, they are in a position to #DeliverChange and inspire other companies to follow their lead.
