Accelerating Zero-Emissions Delivery: An innovative approach to transforming the last mile introduces a new financing model for Zero Emissions Delivery Zone (ZED Zone) that can accelerate commercial vehicle electrification and enable companies to hit their clean shipping goals. Further, the model can unlock substantial financial, social and environmental returns for forward-thinking investors. For example, the report finds that by sponsoring just 15 zero-emissions delivery vehicles, companies can create $1 million of health benefits from reduced air pollution.
