An Post reduces carbon emissions by 23% in 12 years

An Post has released its annual sustainability report showing that it has reduced its overall carbon emissions by 23% since 2009 and is on track to reach a target of 50% by 2025 and net zero by 2030.

David McRedmond, CEO at An Post, said, “The response of An Post’s staff to the Covid-19 pandemic demonstrated, better than any report or statistic, a deep commitment to sustainable living: to look after our most vulnerable, to stand with the elderly, to unite communities in solidarity with the state, and to deliver an essential infrastructure to every home, community, town and city in our country.

“Our sustainability strategy is visible every day. The big commitment to replace the biggest fleet in the country with electric vehicles can be seen on the streets of Ireland’s cities and towns. We have much more to do to realize our vision of an island where sustainable living can be commonplace. We have work to do on building a circular economy, working with suppliers to ensure less waste and energy usage as online shopping grows exponentially. Green Hub is a great example of combining our commercial role, in this case selling financial services, with a commitment to sustainability by helping our customers retrofit their homes.”
