dieci - pizza enjoyment with climate protection contribution

dieci not only plans and implements effective reduction measures, but also makes contributions to carbon offset projects in cooperation with myclimate in the amount of the unavoidable CO₂ emissions.

dieci makes great efforts to primarily reduce CO2 emissions with effective measures and then offsets the remaining emissions in a further step. The pizza delivery service already uses its resources responsibly and tries to minimise its CO2 emissions where possible. Among other things, the traditional courier service is focusing on the delivery fleet, the packaging and the raw ingredients for the dieci dishes.

  • Delivery fleet: dieci is upgrading its fleet to electric vehicles where possible and is even using electric scooters and e-cargo bikes in urban areas. This ensures a continuous reduction of transportation emissions.
  • Branch modernisation: The newly planned dieci branch in Bern will be the first to be equipped with its own six charging stations for electric cars in order to further the use of electric delivery vehicles at dieci.
  • Environmentally friendly packaging: dieci sources its packaging material from Switzerland. Its pizza box supplier takes care to make valuable use of resources and uses renewable energies wherever possible. Other packaging containers are also made from environmentally friendly materials. Certain materials are compostable and the company minimises the volume of packaging.
  • Resource-efficient food sourcing: Where possible, the raw ingredients for all dieci dishes come from Switzerland or from selected Italian producers. This means that the delivery routes for transporting the food are also as short as possible.

Delivery service optimised – delivery is responsible for four times less emissions than food

Together with myclimate, dieci has calculated the greenhouse gas balance of its unavoidable emissions. All its activities and consumption were collected and evaluated. The myclimate analysis showed that more than 60% of dieci's total emissions come from the food itself. Transport and packaging are also responsible for emissions, of course, but at 15% and 10% of total emissions respectively, not as much as one might expect. Even heating the pizza ovens has a relatively low impact.

Thanks to the intensive cooperation with myclimate, dieci makes corresponding climate protection contributions to projects for all emissions from products such as pizzas, pasta dishes, salads, desserts and even drinks. In addition to many other factors, the emissions from deliveries are also included in the calculation.

Offsetting locally and globally

dieci offsets the unavoidable emissions via two myclimate carbon offset projects. In order to make a global as well as a local impact, dieci has deliberately selected a regional as well as an international project here.

Our business model as a delivery service means we will always generate a certain level of CO2emissions. However, at dieci, we go to great lengths to minimise these wherever possible. For the unavoidable emissions, we finance climate protection measures with our partner myclimate.
