Middle-mile drone firm Dronamics has achieved CarbonNeutral certification according to the CarbonNeutral Protocol standard.
The standard, which was created and is managed by Natural Capital Partners, is achieved by calculating a carbon footprint and reducing it to zero through a combination of in-house efficiency measures, renewable energy and external emissions reductions projects.
Company certification is based on Dronamics own operating activities, energy use, business travel, waste disposal as well as any outsourced activities.
Dronamics co-founder and chief executive Svilen Rangelov said: “Achieving CarbonNeutral company certification is more than an accolade, it’s a necessity.
“The cargo industry has a reputation for being polluting and this is something we are looking to address through innovation.
“We believe we can be the most efficient mobility solution for goods – faster, cheaper and with lower emissions.
“Our long-term sustainability strategy will see us working with Natural Capital Partners to maintain transparency and accountability.”
The company also pointed out that its proprietary Black Swan drone is powered by clean and energy efficient technologies, running at 80-100% lower emissions than other means of transportation.
Its certified engine runs on biofuels as well as synthetic fuels, generating significant carbon emission savings without the challenges of electric technology.
