The Ford Electric scooter company has announced plans to be carbon neutral by 2025
Spin's goal is to eliminate more emissions from its existing businesses, including the manufacture of electric scooters, than it does from providing services.
Ford Motor Company has announced ambitious plans to be carbon neutral by 2025.
Spin aims to reduce emissions from its existing businesses, including the manufacture of electric scooters, rather than providing services.
It has set out four commitments to ensure its goals are met, including transitioning operations to 100 per cent plug-in hybrid and battery-electric vehicles (EVs) and to 100 per cent renewable energy for charging.
The electric scooter rental company also aims to make the pattern shift of the rider a core indicator of the company's sustainability and achieve a minimum 24-month life of Spin vehicles and 100 per cent landfill diversion.
Shivam Vohra, senior program manager at Spin's Sustainable Development Initiative, said: "We have to be responsible for tracking the carbon emissions from providing services.This was made easier by the fact that we employed most people to deploy, collect and charge scooters using pickup trucks and warehouses.Operators that rely on all those acrobats (using private cars and charging at home) face a daunting challenge in calculating these emissions.
"If we really provide a more sustainable form of urban transport, then we should eliminate more carbon emissions than we produce."
