Getaround Europe joins the Climate Act, making a concrete commitment to fight against climate change
Paris, 11 May 2021:
Getaround Europe has signed the Climate Act, joining a collective of over 200 startups in the French tech industry making a commitment to fight against climate change.
By joining the Climate Act, Getaround commits to:
- Carry out a complete carbon footprint assessment before the end of the year.
- Share the results publicly.
- Take concrete actions to reduce identified emissions
This public commitment to the environment is a continued step towards Getaround’s vision of improving cities and communities, with a mission to reduce private car ownership and congestion through carsharing.
As of May 1, 2021, 218 French companies have joined the Climate Act. For the full list of participating companies, visit www.climateact.fr.
Founded in 2009, Getaround is the world's leading carsharing platform with fleets of shared and connected cars available in 800 cities across 8 countries. People use Getaround to find a car nearby, which they can unlock with their phone, and drive to wherever they want for a few hours or days.
In 2019, after 10 years of growth in the US, Getaround acquired Drivy - Europe's leading carsharing platform - as well as Nabobil, its counterpart in the Nordic countries, to create a global mobility leader.
Getaround connects safe, convenient, and affordable cars with people who need them to live and work. We aim to create the world’s best carsharing marketplace with proprietary technology and data that make sharing vehicles superior to owning them.
The Getaround community includes owners - private and professional, including those who operate their own carsharing businesses - who share their cars on the platform, and drivers who rely on the cars provided for their on-demand mobility needs.
Our vision is to make our cities and communities better places to live by:
- Empowering people with convenient access to the cars they need, whenever they need them.
- Improving mobility by relieving congestion and making public transit easier to use.
- Protecting our environment by reducing pollution and advancing sustainable energy.
We support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to “make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”. For more information, visit Getaround.com or download our iPhone and Android app.
