Total GHG Inventory

  • 2010: 26 tonnes CO2e

  • Split-mode deliveries where efficient

Projected Uplift

eeko Couriers Inc. is growing rapidly, providing low-carbon delivery services throughout the Lower Mainland on both bikes and in hybrid vehicles. They measured their baseline inventory using their 2010 fiscal year, which was measured to be 26 tonnes CO2e.

While their business is on track to more than double in 2011, they don’t expect their emissions to double as they have seen efficiencies in routing. Where it is efficient, they are also experimenting with split-mode deliveries, where they use bikes for downtown pickups, then use Skytrain to get to the suburbs where they pass off to a hybrid vehicle for final delivery.

They have demonstrated that incorporating green modes of transport can improve uptake in their services: owner Mike Shekhtman estimates that 5-10% of their growth this year can be attributed to the expansion of their bike delivery services.
