Ride-hailing firm Gett has introduced new sustainable transportation options and upgraded its corporate Ground Transportation Management (GTM) platform and B2B marketplace.
The company says the changes will enable its enterprise clients to track, control and reduce CO2 emissions from their business travel in the Capital.
Gett’s platform now allows UK businesses to adopt an employee travel policy consisting solely of electric fleets running 24 hours a day in central London.
It has been able to extend this service through both more TX Electric taxis and more fleet partners, including Ola and Green Tomato who provide eco-travel options for business clients.
Dave Waiser, CEO and co-founder of Gett, said: “We are delighted to offer more sustainability initiatives at Gett as we strive to reduce CO2 emissions and support our enterprise clients in achieving their sustainability goals.
“With corporate travel resuming, businesses have greater responsibility for employee transportation. As a global platform, we are in the fortunate position to take action to reduce the impact of pollution in the cities we love and provide businesses travelers with more sustainable transportation choices.”
The new platform capability complements Gett’s existing Gett Green program in the United Kingdom. Through its existing partnership with EcoAct, Gett helps offset enterprise clients’ annual CO2 emissions from vehicle rides.
EcoAct’s CO2 offsetting program is based on three accredited projects: wind power generation in India, peatland conservation and restoration, and Cambodian rainforest protection. Each project aligns to specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as Gett supports its enterprise clients in achieving a more sustainable future.
In addition, B2C riders can select from numerous eco-travel options available on the Gett app—Gett Electric (to ride in a TX Electric taxi) and Gett Green (to donate 20p from total ride fare to help fund green projects in London).
In May 2021, Gett signed a new Gett Green partner, Trees for Cities. Trees for Cities is a London-based environmental charity that has planted more than one million trees to improve air quality in urban areas.
