Global citizenship

Our commitment to community

 

Today’s communities face an unprecedented set of challenges. And while technology by itself isn't the solution, when it's done right—and combined with good partnerships—it has the potential to contribute to a better world for all.

Our people, processes and technology can help transform cities into safer, more efficient and more beautiful places.

“We’re excited to be one of Uber's early partners to mitigate traffic congestion and improve infrastructure.”

 

Muriel Bowser, Mayor, Washington, DC

Our data from more than 10 billion trips can help urban planners design the cities of the future.

Through partnerships with leading organisations, we’re working to help make driving safer and prevent incidents on the road.

To help reduce Brazil’s 400,000 road accidents each year, football players from Clube Atlético Paranaense teamed up with Uber to discourage texting while driving.

Diverse offices can help create higher-performing teams and better products that are designed to be used by everyone.

Unique backgrounds and diverse perspectives are not only celebrated but also put to use, helping to build resources that connect users and make life easier for people in the 60+ countries where Uber is available.

Whether it’s helping under-represented users or simplifying everyday life, the Uber platform can make a difference when it’s accessible to more people.

“Uber is the single best advancement for the mobility of blind people in the past decade.”

 

Mike May, Former President, the Lighthouse for the Blind

Our products are designed with ease, independence and spontaneity in mind, not just for a select few, but for everyone in our society, whatever their age, background or physical abilities.

Giving back

We advance our company's mission of igniting opportunity in our philanthropy, partnerships and employee volunteering programmes.

“Sustainability is integral to the success of our business.”

 

Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO, Uber

Uber's environmental, social, and governance (ESG) report shows how, through core business and social impact activities, we help make real life easier to navigate for everyone.
