Under the programme, Delivery Hero will offer eco-friendly packaging solutions to local restaurants at a competitive cost.

It will offer 100% plant-based and perfluoroalkoxy-alkanes free alternatives to plastic packaging to restaurants across the globe.

Delivery Hero co-founder and CEO Niklas Östberg 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.”

Initially, the company plans to pilot the concept in Austria, Chile, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Qatar, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), with the intention to further expand to other parts of the globe.

The sustainable packaging will be made available to local restaurants through Delivery Hero’s local brands.

In partnership with Eco-Products and Bio-Lutions, Delivery Hero will provide packaging products such as burger boxes, compartment containers, salad bowls and soup and sauce containers.

In 2019, Delivery Hero invested in Bio-Lutions and supported its innovative packaging solution development.

By the end of next year, the company has set a target to deploy ten million units of sustainable packaging.

The Sustainable Packaging Program is the first global initiative from Delivery Hero to actively reduce carbon emissions produced by plastic packaging.

Additionally, the programme will support the company’s pledge to become carbon neutral globally by the end of this year.

The company has already achieved carbon neutrality for its European and Latin American operations.
