A Vancouver-based grocery delivery company plans to reduce its carbon footprint by 10 per cent next year.

Small Potatoes Urban Delivery (SPUD) is one of 10 small businesses and non-profits that are participating in the first Carbon Neutral Workgroup for Small Business organized by Ecotrust Canada in partnership with the Pembina Institute. The idea is to help small businesses measure, shrink and offset their carbon footprint, while meeting consumer demand for climate-friendly products and services.

"We’re committed to reducing our footprint in 2008 from our current level of 429 tonnes," SPUD president David Van Seters said at a news conference Monday.
