Neuron Mobility has announced the launch of its first-ever Impact Report, ‘Meeting Micromobility’s Potential‘, highlighting the positive impact the company has had on the environment, economy and community.

The new report identifies Neuron Mobility’s key achievements throughout 2021, which includes the launch of its ambitious sustainability strategy to guide the design, manufacturing, operations and end-of-life for its vehicles; its joining of The Climate Pledge, demonstrating its ongoing commitment to the environment; and the company’s Carbon Neutral certification.

Furthermore, Neuron’s global rider surveys show that over 45 per cent of journeys taken on its vehicles in 2021 directly replaced a car trip – resulting in three million car journeys being avoided and 844 tonnes of carbon emissions being saved. The operator has also seen huge growth globally as it has tripled its operations since September 2020, launching in 22 new cities and continuing to serve the communities it operates in.

In addition, during the COVID-19 pandemic Neuron provided frontline workers with 5,000 free monthly passes and a socially distanced way to travel. Trips on its vehicles also helped connect riders to local retailers, with six out of 10 rides resulting in a purchase. To further support local economies recovering from the pandemic, Neuron also created 1,400 employment opportunities worldwide.

The report further highlights the significant investment the company has made into safety and innovation, from designing and manufacturing its own e-scooters to Neuron’s work with safety partners and education programmes. Over the last year, it has deployed over 325 Safety Ambassadors on the streets to educate riders, delivering 108 safety events, where thousands of face-to-face briefings have been conducted as part of the company’s ScootSafe campaigns.

In line with its commitment to reach Net Zero by 2040, Neuron has also pledged to become carbon negative by 2025. According to the company, this carbon negative target means that it will be taking ambitious measures to reduce its emissions footprint, by addressing emissions-intensive processes in the supply chain, manufacturing, operations and end of life treatment for its vehicles.
