An Post Eco also pledges zero emission deliveries in other cities including Cork, Galway, Kilkenny and Waterford by end-2020, and the provision of public electric vehicle charging points at An Post sites.
Garrett Bridgeman, Managing Director of An Post Mails & Parcels says:
“An Post Eco is our plan to eliminate carbon emissions across our network and our operations over the next decade as we take real action around our responsibility to our communities and to our environment. We are working with Government and various agencies to be a leader towards zero emissions.
“Replacing our urban fleet with electric vans and delivery tricycles is the first step while we set about changing the way we do things to reach zero emissions. We will be extending the new fleet to other cities and looking at ways to drive down emissions outside urban areas.
“An Post is investing €250,000 and saving 100 tonnes of CO2 in this initial phase with staff using the latest electric vans and tricycles for delivering to customers at all 40,000 private and business addresses between Dublin’s canals.”
