TIER Mobility has announced that it has published its Corporate Sustainability Strategy, setting out the steps that it will take to achieve its goal of reducing emissions and protecting the environment.

Developed through a deeply collaborative process involving virtually all departments across the company, the strategy defines five action areas where TIER can have the greatest impact on sustainable development: driving climate action, losing resource loops, shaping sustainable urban environments, putting people first and embedding sustainability into supply chain management.

Further goals include reducing scope one and two emissions by 50 per cent by 2026, increasing the share of recyclable materials across its vehicles to over 90 per cent and achieving zero waste status in all TIER warehouses.

Ahead of publishing the strategy, the micro-mobility operator analysed data from all the 540 cities it operates in globally. The data shows that since its founding, TIER riders have collectively replaced more than 48 million kilometres of car trips, avoiding eight million kilograms of CO2 emissions.

Furthermore, the data shows that Germany, where the company is based, achieved the greatest shift from car trips to e-mobility journeys, with almost 25 million kilometres of car journeys having been replaced in the 104 German regions that TIER operates in, including Berlin, Hamburg, Stuttgart and Dortmund.

France, Sweden, Norway and Poland recorded the next highest savings, collectively avoiding more than two million kilograms of carbon emissions. 

Lawrence Leuschner, CEO of TIER Mobility, said: “I really am proud of the difference we’re making to our cities – but we know there is still much more to be done. That’s why we’re introducing our Corporate Sustainability Strategy, which incorporates our core sustainability values into all aspects of decision-making, helping us to set measurable long-term goals and be more transparent about the progress of our mission.”

Ailin Huang, Head of Sustainability at TIER Mobility, said: “Promoting sustainable development is without doubt one of the most pressing challenges we face, which is why we have unveiled this new framework to ensure that TIER is performing to the highest standards in this area. As we look forward to implementing these new measures needed to reach our ambitious targets, we are also inviting our colleagues in the industry, city partners and policymakers to scale our actions and create enabling environments for widespread micro-mobility adoption.”
