The India EVolve Innovation Challenge invites young creative minds from across India to ideate scalable solutions to decarbonize India’s transport sector. Focusing on technology, social impact, governance, and financial viability, this challenge aims to shape sustainable transportation’s future by gathering innovative ideas and thoughts that can be implemented and scaled specifically to reduce impact of the last mile parcel DELIVERY sector.

While many companies in India’s last-mile delivery sector have acknowledged the need for transition and expressed a willingness to explore sustainable alternatives, it is crucial for youth, civil society, government agencies, and policymakers to actively encourage and support these companies and startups in adopting zero-emission last-mile parcel delivery solutions.

This is an opportunity for India’s youth and student community to actively participate in shaping sustainable transportation’s future. Here your innovative ideas can directly shape government policies and corporate strategies in the delivery sector. Through this we also want to create wider awareness about accelerated EV transition in the sector and also overall viability of EVs in India.

Why is the last mile
delivery sector so important?

It accounts for 50% of emissions in the delivery sector. As India’s e-commerce market skyrockets, we’re hurtling toward 8 million tons of CO2 emissions by 2030 in the last mile of delivery alone—equivalent to 1.6 million petrol cars driven for a year or 20 gas-fired power plants. This is our moment to drive change.
