Royal Mail is rapidly decarbonising its distribution fleet, switching to renewable energy and using more electric vehicles. Not forgetting last mile delivery by posties on foot.

Mail is on Journey to decarbonise

Reduce is a process to minimise the impact and inputs of operations.  For mail, carbon emissions can be reduced by using renewable, clean energy to power deliveries or reducing the amounts of ink and paper in production. A Royal Mail spokesman explains the steps being taken to reduce the inputs and impacts of its operations.

At Royal Mail, we're building on the green benefits of our 'feet on the street' model and reducing our emissions by transitioning 100% of our delivery fleet to electric vehicles by 2035. We have already deployed around 5,000 electric vans.
