Vegan Brand Oatly Makes Climate-Friendly Swap To Electric Delivery Vehicles

by | May 14, 2020

Popular vegan brand Oatly has announced plans to transition to electric delivery vehicles in a bid to be more sustainable.

To make the climate-friendly change, Oatly has teamed up with Einride — a Swedish transport technology company.

The plant-based brand aims to use all-electric vehicles for the commercial transport of its products in Sweden — the home country of the brand.

“Embracing New Sustainable Solutions”

“Sustainability is at the core of everything we do” said Simon Broadbent, the supply chain director at Oatly.

“We are committed to driving change across the food industry through embracing new sustainable solutions in every area of our business.”

“Electrical transportation is a key part of our supply chain strategy globally and on these routes, we will be reducing our carbon footprint by 87 percent.”

Although the all-electric move will first be made in Sweden, the company hopes to extend the initiative to its transport routes in the US soon.
