Lyft Business Product Update

How Lyft is Helping Companies Reduce Their Carbon Footprint

Lyft Business partners now have more ways to track, reduce, and offset their carbon emissions.

At the end of 2021, 2,253 companies across 70 countries and 15 industries, representing more than one third ($38 trillion USD) of global market capitalization, had approved emissions reductions targets or commitments with the Science Based Targets initiative.1

We know climate change has been top of mind for many of our customers, with many wanting to track, measure, and reduce their carbon footprint; understand the impact their travel has; and set ambitious climate goals. We’re proud to announce that our new sustainability offerings can help you do all of that and reach your environmental goals.

New offerings include:

  • Green rides: Green rides are now available to rides in select cities*. When selecting Green rides, riders will be picked up by drivers in either electric or hybrid vehicles for a low carbon emission ride. (Note: dependent on driver availability and supply.)
  • Sustainability Insights: Businesses can track their rideshare GHG emissions on the Lyft platform with Sustainability Insights, including total emissions, and emissions by fuel type and by program.

These new offerings are just a first step towards helping companies track their carbon footprint and to creating a cleaner, healthier, and more equitable future for all. Over the course of 2024 and 2025, Lyft will invest an additional $80 million to support EV drivers and encourage gas-powered drivers to make the switch. More details on Lyft’s commitment can be found in our Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) Report. You can also log into the Lyft Business Portal to view your organization’s Sustainability Insights.
