Auckland Council is supporting its delivery partner, Urgent Couriers, in its bid to cut inner-city emissions. The certified carbon zero courier company is aiming to take 40 to 50 tonnes of carbon emissions a year out of inner-city Auckland by replacing its city fleet of cars with electric cargo bikes. Auckland Council’s Robert Irvine says, “Reducing transport emissions across Tāmaki Makaurau is a key action in Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan, and it’s great to see businesses like Urgent Couriers being innovative when it comes to doing their bit.” The Council will provide parking and charging stations in the basement of its office building.
