If one looks up the United Nation’s definition of sustainable development, it is described as – “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”, shared Deepinder Goyal, CEO & Founder, Zomato in a blog post as it shared a report on sustainability on World Environment Day on 5th June.

He shared that he want to build a Zomato that outlives the current generation – as an organisation that continues to positively contribute to society long after we’ve left.

In the report published, Zomato outlines six sustainable goals to take forward including; Climate conscious deliveries, Waste-free world, Zero hunger, Sustainable livelihoods, Health, safety and wellbeing for all and Diversity, equity and inclusion.

The company is also aiming at 100% adoption of EVs in our delivery fleet by 2030 as part of joining The Climate Group’s EV100 initiative. As of March 2022, it already had 4,500 active EV-based delivery partners.

Zomato is also looking at enabling cycle-based and EV-based deliveries and has 18% orders delivered on bicycles in FY22.

“Our aim is to be at the forefront of this journey in our part of the world, and also lead and inspire other startups to do better. Collective action is a bigger goal for us, than just fixing what we break ourselves,” he further pointed.
