Budbee, the greenest large-scale e-commerce delivery service!
At Budbee, we have a sustainable mindset about everything we do, and protecting the planet for future generations is an integral part of our culture. We are aware that the nature of our business has an effect on the environment but we also believe that this allows us to differentiate ourselves and offer the greenest online delivery service!
Budbee is, and always has been long-term green!
For us, our focus on sustainability is not some PR maneuver; it is an investment in future generations. We are continuously looking for ways to improve, by developing our business with new, innovative, and convenient solutions for our customers, partners, and the planet. By having ambitious goals, we believe that we will be more effective in our journey towards becoming sustainable. Furthermore, we are prepared to endure higher costs in order to enable improvements that benefit sustainability in the long run, whether that means partnering with companies providing cargo bikes, installing fossil-free fuel stations, or using green terminals.
Budbee has climate compensated for every delivery since the company was created. However, in our minds, climate compensation is not sufficient in the long term. We strongly believe that technical innovation can create business opportunities as well as being a tool for creating a better, more sustainable world. Since the very first Budbee delivery we have taken important steps towards long-term sustainability.
The greenest terminal in the last mile space!
Budbee uses the greenest and most cutting-edge terminal in the last mile space! We got the opportunity to be part of the design process, and in August 2020 we got the keys to the new terminal. The focus was to make it as sustainable as possible, and what a terminal it is!
Our focus is to always find new and innovative ways to improve. The new terminal is one of our most recent initiatives, and in our opinion, the most ground-breaking one! What makes this terminal different is that it is so energy self-sufficient. More than 80% of the facility’s roof is covered by solar panels, which produce about 232,000 kWh of electricity annually. The solar panels not only provide enough energy for the terminal itself, but they also produce enough energy to fully sustain our partner's entire fleet of electric vehicles.
A continually growing number of cargo bike partners!
Budbee always searches for new ways to transport our parcels in a more environmentally friendly and efficient way. Since the very beginning, Budbee has been working with cargo bikes and the share of parcels delivered by bikes has grown steadily since then. We have great collaborations with different partners across all our markets and we are proud to see that the bike fleet is constantly growing.
