Your city, our commitment

Uber strives to be a zero-emission and low-packaging-waste platform by 2040.

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.

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.

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.
