Sustainability at Stuart

Our mission says it all: we’re building logistics for a sustainable world. For everyone at Stuart, delivering impact is part of what drives us.

What sustainability means at Stuart

We’re committed to delivering a sustainability strategy that’s closely connected to what we do: create a delivery experience to celebrate. Looking to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and B Corp Framework, we’ve identified core areas where we can increase Stuart’s positive impact on our ecosystem.

How Committing to Net Zero Can Drive Business Growth

Sustainability and climate change expert, Catherine McFarlane, explains how committing to net zero is beneficial to businesses outside of their positive impact on carbon reduction and also delves into the actionable change we're implementing to reach our net zero targets.

How we’re making an impact

We invest in the transition to a low-emission fleet:

  • Using our tech to decrease the distance each package travels via smart routing, vehicle capacity 
  • Testing 100s of electric vehicle (EV) models & innovations like retrofit & battery-swapping
  • Partnering with EV suppliers to accelerate delivery partners’ shift to low-emitting vehicles 
  • Supporting financing for courier partners to make EVs more affordable

How do we measure our impact?

  • Tracking total emissions across company & fleet for scope 1, 2 & 3 to deliver reduction in line with Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi), 
  • Setting internal objectives & carbon price to monitor ongoing performance & increase accountability
