In a significant move towards greener food delivery in the bustling city of London, Uber Eats has partnered with Zoomo to provide couriers with eco-friendly e-mopeds. This partnership is not only a step towards reducing carbon emissions but also aligns with Uber Eats’ goal to make all food delivery trips emission-free globally by 2040, with a specific target of achieving this in major European cities by 2030.
As urban areas grapple with pollution and sustainability concerns, this partnership aims to tackle emissions generated by food delivery. Couriers working with Uber Eats will receive a discount on the initial month’s rental cost for high-quality e-mopeds through Zoomo, which includes insurance, priced at £149.
Nicolas de Juniac, UK General Manager at Zoomo, highlighted the significance of this collaboration. “We admire Uber’s commitments to reduce the carbon footprint of food delivery trips. By joining forces with Uber Eats to enhance courier access to e-mopeds, we’re taking significant strides toward a greener delivery landscape,” said de Juniac.
Matthew Price, Uber Eats General Manager of the UK, Ireland, and Northern Europe, expressed his enthusiasm for this partnership. “It is our goal to be emission-free in London by 2030 and globally by 2040, and with this partnership, we are moving towards that goal,” stated Price.
