Millions of trips a day, zero emissions and a shift to sustainable packaging
That’s our commitment to every person on the planet, and we’ll do everything in our power to get there. The path will be electric and shared. It will be with buses, trains, bicycles, and scooters. It will mean helping people move, order meals, and send things using options that are more sustainable. These changes won’t come easily, and they will take work and time to achieve. But we have a plan to get there, and we want you to come along for the ride.
Announced global commitment to becoming a zero-emission mobility platform.
Expanded global commitment to include zero-emission delivery trips and promote the transition to more-sustainable packaging options.
Hundreds of thousands of drivers transition to electric vehicles (EVs) through our Green Future program, with 50% of kilometers in EVs in key European cities.
80% of restaurant orders with Uber Eats across European and Asia Pacific cities are transitioned from single-use plastics to reusable, recyclable, or compostable packaging options.
Uber is operating as a zero-emission mobility platform in the US, Canada, and European cities.
100% of Uber Eats restaurant merchants transition to reusable, recyclable, or compostable packaging options globally.
100% of rides and deliveries globally are in zero-emission vehicles or through micromobility or public transit.
Offering more ways to ride green
We’re committed to providing sustainable, shared alternatives to the personal car.
You can now tap a button and request a ride in an electric or hybrid vehicle in cities across Germany and all around the world—with 30% lower carbon intensity than taking your own car. Approximately half of the cars that our fleet partners in Germany utilize are already hybrid today.
Transit & rural area pilots
We’re partnering with local transit agencies around the world to add real-time transit information and ticket purchase and redemption directly in the Uber app.
In Germany we are running rural area pilots in Kirchheim near Munich and in Falkensee in Brandenburg. With these projects we aim to improve mobility beyond city centres and reduce the use of private vehicles.
Bikes and scooters
We’ve integrated Lime bikes and scooters into the Uber app across 65+ cities globally, with Berlin, Cologne, Frankfurt and Munich being part of those in Germany, and with plans to expand micromobility options. Also Jump Bikes are available in several German cities.
Helping drivers go electric
Drivers are leading the way toward a greener future, and Uber is committed to supporting them. Our Green Future program provides access to resources valued at $800 million to help hundreds of thousands of drivers transition to battery EVs by 2025 in Canada, Europe, and the US.
Helping merchants access more sustainable packaging
To address single-use-plastic waste and its effects on the environment, we’re committed to supporting restaurant merchants’ transition to recyclable, compostable, and reusable packaging. We’ll help merchants with this transition in every city where we do business through a combination of discounts, incentives, and advocacy—with the goals of ending all unnecessary plastic waste from Uber Eats restaurant deliveries by 2030 and eliminating emissions on deliveries by 2040.
Partnering to fight climate change
Uber is bringing our innovation, technology, and talent to the fight against climate change. We’re partnering with NGOs, advocacy groups, and environmental justice organizations to help expedite a clean and equitable energy transition. We’re teaming up with experts, vehicle manufacturers, charging network providers, EV and e-bike rental fleets, and utility companies to help drivers gain affordable access to green vehicles and charging infrastructure. We’re also working with suppliers of recyclable, reusable, and compostable packaging to enable restaurant merchants to access quality packaging at reduced prices.

Making transparency a priority
Progress starts with taking a serious look at where we stand today and sharing results to drive accountability.
Climate Assessment and Performance Report
Our Climate Assessment and Performance Report analyzes the nearly 4 billion rides taken on our platform in the US and Canada from 2017 to 2019. Uber is the only mobility company to assess and publish real-world sustainability data.
Science Based Targets initiative
Uber joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to help ensure accountability and rigor in our push to become a zero-emission platform. The SBTi defines best practices in target setting and independently assesses and approves progress.
