Goals until 2025
Less plastic and non-polluting deliveries
iFood is neutral in terms of carbon dioxide emissionsdelivery operations since 2021. When an order reaches you, the gases emitted have already been compensated.
Developed by iFood in partnership with Tembici, is the world's first bicycle rental service (traditional or electric) exclusively for delivery people. Today we are in 5 more cities: Recife, Salvador, Brasília, Porto Alegre and Curitiba. On average 22% of iFood orders are delivered using non-polluting modes.
In partnership with SpeedBird Aero, iFood became the first company in the Americas to use drones in delivery. They are in action in Sergipe and reduce the route from Aracaju to Barra dos Coqueiros to 5 minutes.
The ADA robot
ADA was born from a partnership between iFood and Synkar, and uses artificial intelligence to speed up deliveries in shopping centers and condominiums.
Friends of Nature
Its objective is to encourage partner establishments to reduce the sending of single-use plastic items. All customers can choose not to receive them with their order.
We are protagonists in the sector in using technology to develop more sustainable and competitive packaging compared to plastic. With innovation, scale and affordable prices, iFood and partners such as Suzano, Growpack, Klabin and Braskem accelerate the adoption of sustainable packaging by establishments.
Support for recycling
To increase recycling rates in the country, iFood invests in supporting cooperatives, PEVs (Voluntary Delivery Point) and structuring a Styrofoam recycling chain.
By accessing “Recicla Bot” on your cell phone, you can find out what is recyclable and what is not, and receive selective collection tips and in correct waste disposal sites.
I've Been Bag: zero landfill
Carried out in partnership with Greening and Retalhar to put reverse logistics into practice: 100% of the bags collected by iFood become other products or are co-processed.
We invest in forest regeneration and restoration in partnership with the NGO SOS Mata Atlântica. We have already planted 50 thousand native seedlings from the Atlantic Forest, an area similar to that of 20 football fields.
