多伦多— Uber Technologies Inc.正在加拿大启动一些可持续发展措施，以实现其为减少温室气体排放而设定的崇高目标。
这家总部位于旧金山的乘车巨头周二表示，将鼓励使用 electric and hybrid vehicles by offering rewards 和 savings for riders 和 earnings for drivers who use them 和 allocating $800 million in resources to the cause.
优步's commitments come as the ride-hailing business has slumped in several markets during the COVID-19 pandemic, but global attention around climate change has not dissipated.
"We want to take this opportunity to do more, to do better 和 to do our part to drive the green recovery in our cities," said Dara Khosrowshahi, 优步首席执行官在周二的媒体简报中。
"优步 has a clear responsibility to reduce our environmental impact 和 today we are committing to ... tackle the climate crisis more aggressively than ever before."
When two-thirds of the world's population was under lockdown in early April, carbon emissions fell 17 per compared with last year, but by June, the drop was only five per cent, Khosrowshahi 说过。
优步 说大流行已经加快了其在气候变化方面的努力，其中包括 Uber 绿色，提供服务 electric and hybrid vehicle rides.
It will operate in more than 30 cities this year, including Toronto, Vancouver, Waterloo 和 Ottawa.
The service will use geofencing technology 和 focus on busy commuting hours 和 dense areas of cities to ensure the availability of Green 游乐设施。
Through the service, riders will be charged an extra $1 per ride. Half that surcharge will be given to the driver 和 the other half will flow to the Green Future program, which hopes to help drivers transition to EVs.
该公司还将尝试说服驾驶员采用更环保的产品 vehicles 通过为每趟绿色之旅额外提供50美分 hybrid 或EV司机，零排放每次$ 1 vehicle 车主，电池电动车驾驶员每次绿色行驶1.50美元。
It is committing $800 million in resources to help drivers transition to EVs by 2025 和 partnering with auto companies like 通用汽车 in the U.S. 和 Canada 和 Renault-Nissan across European cities to offer savings to those who make the switch.
优步 will also release climate assessment 和 performance reports detailing emissions stemming from trips on the platform in Canada 和 the U.S.
星期二发布的第一份气候报告发现 Uber 从2017年到2019年，这两个市场共接待了40亿次游乐设施，但他说当前的交通状况“不可持续”。
Transportation emissions have grown faster than any other end-use sector over the last three decades 和 CO2 emissions from the industry account for nearly one-quarter of the global total, Uber said.
