The new normal

Electric vehicles are also incorporated into our Business Class and First Class in many cities. Our current goal is to have 50% of our rides be electric by the end of 2025.

100% carbon offset

Whichever vehicle class you choose, we automatically offset the emissions with our carbon offset program.

Carbon offsetting with South Pole

In 2017, we were the first in the industry to automatically offset all of our rides, no opt-in or extra charge required. Now we’re working with South Pole to continue offsetting all our ride emissions going forward.

Embracing accountability with Cooper Parry

No one likes greenwashing. To make sure we — and you — have a clear view on what we’ve achieved and what we can develop further, we’re partnering with Cooper Parry to offer third-party verification of our carbon footprint and offset program and fill in any gaps.

Committing to net-zero with The Climate Pledge

We signed The Climate Pledge, an agreement to reach net-zero carbon by 2040, 10 years earlier than the goal of The Paris Agreement. This will mean that instead of offsetting our carbon emissions, we won’t emit any at all.

Encouraging change with Time for Climate Action

There are so many ways to do good for the planet that are quick and easy, and still make a lasting long-term impact. With Time for Climate Action, we promote small steps that our customers and crew can take, for example:

  • In 2 minutes, you can ask your political representatives to take climate action in government.
  • In 5 minutes, you can switch your household to green energy, saving not just CO2 emissions, but money too.

Participating in climate strikes

Being a part of the transportation industry means that our crew feels even more compelled to participate in direct action to demand changes from our governing bodies, and fight for what is right, together. That’s why many of our crew members have used their Blacklane Cares community days to come together as a team and participate in the yearly global climate strikes.
