The Road to Zero Continues


WEBWIRE

Two years ago we made a commitment to become a zero-emissions mobility platform. Weíre sharing an update on the promising progress so far, and some of the actions taken this past year to help us get there.†

Our 2022 Climate Assessment and Performance Report (CAsPR) shows that as of Q3 2022:††

  • On average, more than 37,000 zero emission vehicle (ZEV) drivers a month are actively using Uberís app in the US, Canada, and Europe. Thatís a fourfold increase since the same period a year prior.†
  • ZEV drivers in the US, Canada, and Europe* completed more than 19.4 million trips free of tailpipe-emissions on the Uber app Ė approximately 4.5 times higher than the same period a year ago.
  • 7.1% of all on-trip mileage in Europe* and 4.1% of all on-trip mileage in the US and Canada were completed by ZEV drivers. That represents year-over-year growth of 3.6 percentage points.†
  • ZEV uptake by drivers using Uberís app is now 5x and 8x higher than that of drivers in the general population in Europe and the US respectively.†


Momentum is growing, especially in the US where our concerted efforts including new products, a new tool to help business partners track their own emissions, expanded partnerships and meaningful public policy is starting to pay dividends. ZEV uptake by drivers on Uberís platform is now 8x higher than that of the general US population. Our home state of California, where we see leading government policies and strong EV industry investment, is now the US leader for EV miles on the Uber platform with nearly 9% of all on-trip miles completed by ZEV drivers in Q3 2022.

The ongoing shift to electric in Europe continues to lead the world, with electric on-trip miles doubling year on year, with 7.1% of on-trip miles now electric. Itís no surprise that London, a city with leading government policies, leads the world with 15% of on-trip miles now electric.†

While we have much more work to do to get to zero-emissions, our 2022 report shows weíre on our way. Getting there wonít be easy and we canít do it alone. Climate is a team sport and weíre in it together. We look forward to working with policymakers, climate experts, EV industry leaders and many others to meaningfully reduce the environmental impact of trips taken on our app and help create healthier, more liveable urban environments.†
