. Delivery Hero launches a global Sustainable Packaging Program to provide local restaurants with eco-friendly
packaging solutions at a competitive cost
. Piloting the concept in Austria, Chile, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Qatar, Singapore, and the United Arab
Emirates, the company plans to expand the program to more markets in the near future
. Delivery Hero aims to deploy 10 million units of sustainable packaging by the end of 2022 to reduce plastic waste
and carbon emissions
. After pledging to become carbon neutral globally by the end of 2021, the Sustainable Packaging Program further
reinforces Delivery Hero's broader sustainability commitment
Berlin, 27 July 2021 - Delivery Hero SE ("Delivery Hero"), the world's leading local delivery platform, today announces
the launch of its global Sustainable Packaging Program. The program aims to provide 100% plant-based and
perfluoroalkoxy-alkanes (PFAS) free alternatives to plastic packaging for local restaurants across the globe. PFAS
(commonly known as "forever chemicals") are man-made compounds commonly used in food packaging to provide liquid and
grease resistance. However, they are environmental pollutants as they cannot be broken down by nature and have also
been linked to adverse human health effects^[1]. Restaurants in Austria, Chile, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Qatar,
Singapore and the United Arab Emirates can soon benefit from high-quality sustainable packaging from Delivery Hero at
affordable pricing - even compared to traditionally cheaper plastic options.
Niklas Östberg, CEO and Co-Founder of Delivery Hero, said: "Becoming more sustainable is an important part of Delivery
Hero's ambition to build a company that future generations can be proud of. By taking responsibility to reduce our
environmental impact and carbon footprint through sustainable packaging, Delivery Hero aspires to pave the way for the
industry and deliver a more climate friendly service for customers and communities around the world."
The sales of sustainable packaging will first be made available to restaurants in eight markets via Delivery Hero's
local brands. Delivery Hero sets the goal to deploy 10 million units of sustainable packaging by the end of 2022, and
expand the program to more regions in the near future. The company collaborates with Eco-Products and BIO-LUTIONS to
provide a wide range of packaging products including burger boxes, compartment containers, salad bowls, soup and sauce
In 2019, Delivery Hero invested in BIO-LUTIONS and supported the development of its innovative packaging solution. By
incorporating their products into its business model, Delivery Hero sets an example for the industry to invest in
companies that can positively impact their supply chain.
Jeffrey Oatham, Director of CSR & Sustainability at Delivery Hero, said: "At Delivery Hero, we are always aiming higher
and want to actively reduce our impact on the environment. By making sustainable packaging accessible and economically
feasible in our markets across four continents, we are creating an effective and scalable way to reduce plastic waste
and carbon emissions produced by the delivery industry."
Delivery Hero has pledged to become carbon neutral globally by the end of 2021 and has already achieved carbon
neutrality for its European and Latin American operations. Following its commitment to climate protection efforts,
Delivery Hero is exploring emission reduction to narrow its carbon footprint. The Sustainable Packaging Program is the
company's first global initiative to actively reduce carbon emissions produced by plastic packaging. For more
