We don't just want to revolutionise urban mobility, we also want to make sure that our unu Scooters are climate neutral.
That's why we've been offsetting the emissions of our production since 2020, so if you also charge your unu with green electricity, you're supporting our mission to achieve climate-neutral mobility even further.
What does this mean?
Determining the CO2 emissions
We analyzed the CO2 emissions of our scooters, batteries and charging stations together with ClimatePartner and created the Product Carbon Footprint (PCF): we looked at raw materials, logistics and packaging according to the usual cradle-to-gate plus end-of-life approach.
Here you find the summary of our partnership,
Avoid and reduce
Where possible, we avoid and reduce these CO2 emissions. From production measures, green electricity or shipping, we are constantly trying to improve. We regularly update the PCF to keep track of the success of our measures.
Offsetting CO2 emissions through climate protection projects
We offset all unavoidable CO2 emissions by supporting climate protection projects. That is why our scooters, batteries and charging stations are climate neutral. Climate protection projects save CO2 - for example with reforestation measures or the replacement of climate-damaging technologies with climate-friendly alternatives.
The "climate neutral" label
We label our scooters, batteries and charging stations with the independent "climate neutral" label, enabling our customers to track climate neutrality and learn more about the climate protection project. In this way, we contribute to the greatest possible transparency about the climate neutrality of our products.
Our climate protection projects
To offset our CO₂ emissions, we support several recognised climate protection projects that are certified according to international standards:
Forest protection in Germany through various local projects, carried out by Schutzgemeinschaft Deutscher Wald e. V.
Forest protection and aid for the indigenous population in April Salumei, Papua New Guinea, supported by Environmental Services Inc.
The protection of the Amazon and local communities on the ground in Madre de Dios, Peru, this project is managed by SCS Global Services.
