Woolworths now has solar-powered vans delivering goods ordered online to people's homes, and it has saved almost 3,600kg of carbon dioxide emissions over the course of two months. The electric panel vans are trialled in collaboration with DSV and Everlectric. Woolworths is the first retailer in South Africa to introduce electric panel vans for online delivery services. Woolworths said the move is in line with its vision to be one of the most sustainable retailers in the world.
