India logs 2.6 billion e-commerce deliveries a year and the last-mile emissions per delivery, 285 gCO2, are way higher than the global average of 204 gCO2. Five cities – Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Chennai – emit more CO2 from last-mile deliveries than the last-mile emissions of entire countries such as France and Canada. Gowri Omanakuttan and Atul Gopal, who’re part of the #EVmyDelivery campaign to reduce such emissions, talk to All Indians Matter.
