KATHMANDU: Yeti Airlines, Nepal’s first and only carbon-neutral airline, is further enhancing its efforts towards a greener future by testing the use of an electric van in the airport premises.

According to a research by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) a typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.6 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year. Yeti Airlines, by adopting the use of an electric van for its services, will be creating a major positive environmental impact, as per a media release. If the electric van trial brings a positive response, Yeti Airlines commits to replace all of its 20 units of petrol engine vans with these Mahindra e-Supro electric vans. This initiative of Yeti Airlines will further promote sustainable development goal number 13 ‘Climate Action’
