Delivery Hero

With operations across Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and North Africa, Delivery Hero is one of the world's leading online food and grocery ordering and delivery marketplaces.

Supporting Delivery Hero on their climate journey

As an industry leader, Delivery Hero is taking responsibility for its impact on the environment by partnering with project developer and climate solutions provider, South Pole, to measure and offset part of their direct and indirect emissions by supporting certified climate action projects and fostering sustainable development in the project regions.

Why Delivery Hero Cares

"Our strategy sets our climate action as one of our priorities, with a future focus on reducing our carbon footprint. Taking responsibility for our greenhouse gas emissions is part of our commitment to deliver a more sustainable future for our customers and communities around the world."

Jeffrey Oatham, Senior Director of CSR & Sustainability, Delivery Hero

Climate Projects

Delivery Hero supports certified high-quality climate action projects. Read more about these projects below.


Huóshuĭ Small Hydropower, China


Verified Carbon Standard

Huóshuĭ Small Hydropower consists of 95 small hydropower plants. The small-scale plants range in capacity from 0.1 to 14 MW, and together supply enough renewable energy to power over half a million average Chinese homes each year. Their run-of-river design allows them to do so with minimal environmental impact.

The cost of developing hydropower plants in remote locations is a significant barrier to construction, so this project would not be possible without the revenue generated by carbon credits.


Huyndai energy efficiency, South Korea


Verified Carbon Standard

Located at a steel mill in Dangjin Province, South Korea, this project addresses the challenge of energy efficiency: With the help of a newly constructed cogeneration power plant, the waste gas generated by the mill's blast furnaces and coke ovens is reused to power production processes.

In addition, the electricity and steam generated by the project help reduce the mill's power consumption from the grid.


Musi River Hydro, Indonesia


Verified Carbon Standard

This grid-connected, run-of-river hydroelectricity plant is built on the upper banks of the Musi River near Sumatra's port city of Bengkulu.

By harnessing the kinetic energy of powerful running water, the Musi River Hydro plant has a total-installed capacity of 210 MW and delivers over 765,000 MWh to Sumatra's grid every year – that's enough to meet the demands of over 700,000 Indonesians on average each year!


Nongyai Wastewater Treatment, Thailand


Verified Carbon Standard

Using an innovative recycling system, this project captures volatile biogas from a starch, sweetener and ethanol factory and reuses it to power the factories.

The biogas produced is used as fuel in a hot oil boiler and in steam boilers to generate electricity and heat. Prior to project implementation, a fuel mix of biomass and coal was used.


Cerro de Hula, Honduras


Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)

The Cerro de Hula wind power project is located in the municipalities of Santa Ana and San Buenaventura, south of Tegucigalpa in Honduras.

The project is the first wind farm to be connected to the national grid of Honduras and consists of 63 turbines with a capacity of 2 MW each, providing green electricity to meet the ever-increasing demand for energy.


Asahan Hydroelectric Power Plant, Indonesia


Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)

This project is a run-of-river power plant in the north of Sumatra in Indonesia. The project uses the natural flow of the Asahan River to generate clean energy for the local power grid.

The project will contribute to the development of technological capacity in the country as the technology will be introduced and consolidated with local engineers as well as local labour involved in the construction.


Genneia Wind, Argentina


Verified Carbon Standard

The project installs 71 state-of-the art wind turbines across 6 wind farms, 4 are located close to the county's capital, Buenos Aires, while the other 2 sit on some of Argentina's windiest plains in the southern province of Chubut.

The turbines will harness the power of strong prevailing winds to generate clean, renewable electricity for the national grid.
