Narsi’s Notes

Given its core business model, fuel consumption for logistics is perhaps the only logical avenue for Zomato to make any meaningful contributions to direct emissions reductions.

The other, less direct avenue, would be to minimize the amount of packaging materials and plastics they use in their deliveries.

As we can see from Deepinder’s quote, the company appears to be working on both avenues.

Not surprisingly, the company has already started taking initiatives on the packaging side too, starting 2022. Here is the interesting plan (as stated in an April 2022 news report):

Online food delivery platform Zomato announced 100 per cent ‘plastic neutral deliveries’ from April 2022 onwards, while also setting a target to deliver more than 10 crore orders in sustainable packaging over the next three years….According to its CEO: “From now on, every meal you order through Zomato will be 100 per cent plastic neutral, which means we will voluntarily recycle more than 100 per cent of all plastic utilised in your order’s packaging”. To achieve this, “We have started working with cutting edge ISO-certified plastic waste management organisations, who will partner with municipalities across India, to collect and responsibly process plastic waste.”
