Overall sustainability is the key to reducing automotive pollution

India remains one of the most polluted countries in the world and ‘vehicle pollution’ from fossil fuels remains a major concern in the country. Automotive LPG happens to be an environmentally friendly fuel with a global warming potential (GWP) of zero and emits very modest amounts of particulate matter and nitrogen oxides. According to reports by NITI Aayog and RMI, by 2050, India will be able to save around Rs 311,000 crore of fuel and reduce 10 gigatonnes of CO2 by implementing clean and sustainable transport practices. It is also estimated that Auto LPG not only reduces CO2 emissions by up to 15% compared to gasoline vehicles, but also eliminates nearly 80% of particulate emissions when replacing a diesel engine. A look at how some of the recent startups are looking to rise to the challenge-

We are also careful not to engage in indiscriminate processing practices, as these have a high carbon footprint. Our packaging too, as we advise, meets biodegradable standards almost 90% of the time. We encourage also our employees, vendors and customers to minimize hardware usage, more gadgets, single device model, only cloud based operations rather than using more servers, storage devices, hard drives, USB drives, etc., so that we save the environment by reducing e-waste in the long run.

Prasad Sreeram, co-founder and CEO of COGOS, added that “sustainability in the logistics industry reduces the environmental impact of its task by mitigating CO2 emissions, noise pollution and accidents. in logistics must bear in mind that adopting sustainability not only helps to reduce the ecological impact but also contributes to improving the institutional image of the company.”
