A leading e-bike and scooter share operator in Australia and NZ, Neuron Mobility last week announced its commitment to achieve carbon negative status with its global operations by 2025.
The Singapore-based company secured Carbon Neutral certification last year and has signed up to a global Climate Pledge, led by Amazon, to help reach Net Zero by 2040.
“The commitment means Neuron will be taking ambitious measures to reduce its emissions footprint as much as possible, by addressing emissions-intensive processes in the supply chain, manufacturing, operations and end of life treatment for vehicles,” the company says in a media statement.
Its announcement coincides with the release of a new report by the company, Meeting Micromobility’s Potential, highlighting Neuron’s work “to improve the social, economic and environmental impact e-scooters have on cities, as well as setting out ambitious targets for continual improvement”.
In Australia, 45% of all Neuron trips replaced a car journey, which has reduced the number of car trips by 4.2 million, avoided 1,290 tonnes of carbon emissions and offset the use of roughly 550,000 litres of fuel.
Neuron now offers share services in every Australian State, following its recent expansion into Sydney.
In 2021 alone, Neuron journeys have replaced three million car journeys globally, saving 844 tonnes of carbon emissions.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Neuron provided $100,000 in free rides to vaccination centres for the Australian public.
