A year ago, we became one of the world’s largest purchasers of carbon offsets, and made all Lyft rides carbon neutral. And last September, we took it a step further and committed to full carbon neutrality.
Since April 2018, we’ve effectively eliminated the amount of carbon that it would take 2.4 million acres of trees to remove in a single year by purchasing 2,062,500 metric tons of carbon offsets.
Here’s a look at what we’ve done over the past year:
Moving Toward a Greener Future
While making all Lyft rides carbon neutral doesn’t solve climate change, it’s a big step forward.
We’ve also made other efforts to lessen our environmental impact, including:
Expanding the number of electric vehicles on the road
Working with local advocacy groups to bring more green space to our cities
Oh, butt wait: there’s more. Check out what we did for Earth Day.
