Uber Aims for Emission-Free Mobility
Uber is expanding its clean energy commitment to include its Delivery business with a goal to eliminate emissions on all Uber Eats deliveries globally by 2040.
The rideshare and delivery company plans to also end all unnecessary plastic waste from deliveries by 2030, according to a blog post written by Pierre Dimitri Gore-Coty, SVP of Delivery, Uber.
In 2020 the company announced commitments to make Uber an emission-free mobility platform by 2040 globally with 100% of rides taking place in zero-emission vehicles, on public transit, or with micromobility like bikes or scooters.
“In the same way we’re leading the ride-hailing industry on the road to zero emissions, we aim to be the first global delivery tech platform to support the transition to more sustainable packaging—not just for Uber Eats merchants, but for the broader restaurant delivery ecosystem,” Gore-Coty said in a statement.
Uber is also setting earlier emission targets in European cities since the EU’s Green Deal and France’s Climate Bill will facilitate efforts to make all deliveries by couriers using the Uber Eats platform emission-free by 2030.
In Europe and globally, Uber will invest in partnerships and incentives to help couriers transition to e-bikes, EVs and other emission-free modes.
