Lyft is working to reduce its carbon footprint, vowing that from now on, all of its ride are carbon neutral.
This mission takes effect immediately — and globally — thanks to Lyft’s voluntary carbon offset purchases.
According to the company, it will spend millions of dollars on this effort, making it one of the “top voluntary purchasers” in the world.
The effort was detailed today in a statement from Lyft co-founders John Zimmer and Logan Green.
“In the future all vehicles will operate with clean energy,” the duo write.
“But climate change is not waiting … Action cannot wait.” That’s where the company’s carbon offset purchases come into play.
