Niti Aayog Launches ‘Shoonya’ Program to Promote Zero-Pollution Delivery Vehicles

The statement stated that the aim of the Shoonya initiative is to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in the urban deliveries segment and create consumer awareness about the benefits of zero-pollution delivery.

Niti Aayog, a public policy think-tank along with Rocky Mountain Institute(RMI) on Wednesday launched an initiative “Shoonya” to promote zero-pollution delivery vehicles by working with consumers and industry, according to an official statement.

The statement stated that the aim of the Shoonya initiative is to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in the urban deliveries segment and create consumer awareness about the benefits of zero-pollution delivery.

A total of 30 companies including Mahindra Electric, Tata Motors, Zomato, Sun Mobility, Lightning Logistics, Big Basket, Bluedart, Hero Electric, and Swiggy attended the kick-off meeting chaired by Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant, the statement said.

Further, it added that additional industry players will also be invited to join the Shoonya initiative. Amitabh Kant while highlighting the objectives of the campaign said that he is confident that India’s dynamic private sector will rise to the challenge of making Shoonya a great success.

According to the statement, as part of the campaign, a corporate branding and certification program is being launched to recognize and promote the industry’s efforts towards transitioning to EVs for final-mile deliveries.

Urban freight vehicles account for 10 percent of freight transportation-related CO2 emissions in India, and these emissions are expected to grow by 114 percent by 2030.
