DRONAMICS, a middle-mile cargo drone developer and operator, has achieved CarbonNeutral company certification. The certification recognizes that the company has achieved carbon neutrality in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol global standard.
As a fast-growing technology company on the path to net-zero, DRONAMICS is looking to change the status quo in the cargo mobility sector – which means doing things differently. Its proprietary Black Swan drone is powered by clean and energy efficient technologies, running at 80-100% lower emissions than other means of transportation. Furthermore, its certified engine runs on biofuels as well as synthetic fuels, generating significant carbon emission savings without the challenges of electric technology.
Carbon neutrality 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. The CarbonNeutral company certification is based on DRONAMICS’ current operations as measured across Scope 1, 2 and recommended Scope 3 emission sources. These include DRONAMICS’ own operating activities, energy use, business travel, waste disposal as well as any outsourced activities.
While sustainability has become a buzzword for businesses, DRONAMICS’ ambition is to redefine what is possible in an industry widely regarded as environmentally unfriendly. In addition to offsetting its carbon footprint, DRONAMICS has committed to an annual footprint evaluation with CarbonNeutral parent company Natural Capital Partners, to keep it on track with its goals.
“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.” says Svilen Rangelov, co-Founder and CEO of DRONAMICS.
