Key targets hit

CitySprint are proud to be a certified carbon neutral company. Big ideas, bold changes and pioneering initiatives have all contributed to this achievement and we’re proud of each one. Here are some of the markers on our green journey.

Carbon neutral. In May 2022 we offset all carbon emissions from our company for the period of 1st January 2022 – 31st March 2022 through our partner Carbon Neutral Britain.

100% Renewable. In 2009 we moved all our sites to 100% renewable energy sources

Enabling customers. In 2007 we enabled carbon reporting and offsetting tools for our customers

Hydrogen power. In 2018 we started using the very first hydrogen powered van in the logistics industry

ISO 4001. In 2007 we achieved ISO 4001 Environmental Management System accreditation

Pedal power. We have London’s largest courier push bike fleet and a growing fleet of cargo bikes too


When you consider the figures, you can see how well environmental initiatives stack up. Since the launch of our emissions-free fleet, we have covered a staggering 2.35 million miles. That’s almost 100 trips around the world, and more significantly, a saving of over 560 tonnes of C02.

Certified carbon neutral

We are working in partnership with Carbon Neutral Britain to offset all carbon emissions from our company operations every quarter, over the next 2 years. Rather than just measuring and reducing emissions, we are taking a proactive approach to invest in carbon emissions offsetting programs.

In May 2022 we offset the total carbon footprint of our operations (scope 1, 2 and 3) from the period of 1st January 2022 – 31st March 2022 to become certified as Carbon Neutral Company for a period of 3 months. Our emissions have been offset through four Certified Emissions Reductions (CER) offsetting projects.

  • -   Andes Mountains Hydro Power, Chile

  • -   Rice Husk Power, Cambodia

  • -   Huaneng Changyi Wind Farm, China
