Gorillas has announced it has achieved carbon neutrality by compensating for all emissions in Scope 1,2 and 3.3, which the company has generated since its launch in May 2020.
The rapid grocery delivery company revealed that over 4,960 tons of CO2 has been saved, the equivalent of over 30,000 flights from Berlin to Paris.
The achievement marks a milestone for the business as it looks towards achieving a full net-zero emission target across all business areas.
Gorillas worked with Planetly, a tech company that provides businesses with software for carbon management, to get a thorough assessment and analysis of all its emissions.

“We have already achieved an important milestone by compensating for all emissions under direct control – setting a benchmark for the European instant on-demand delivery industry.
“And we will continue to set ourselves ambitious goals and push the boundaries of becoming a better company every day.”
