Project Goals

CO2URIER brings together German and Polish companies to introduce an innovative service for parcel services into the Polish market. The technological and processual solutions and the informational interventions will be based on state-of-the-art methods of lifecycle assessment, corporate development, and behavioural economics. The introduction of the innovations will be scientifically accompanied and evaluated in order to verify their impact. The project contains four work packages, as visualised in the figure: In the first work package, the carbon footprint for the company Quriers is calculated. In the second work package, we analyse the potential for improving the sustainability of Quriers’ business model. The third work package contains the implementation of carbon offsetting mechanisms in a field experiment. Finally, the utilization and knowledge transfer activities for a wider impact of the project results take place in the fourth work package.
