Gett, a prominent platform for black cab and corporate ground travel, has announced an ambitious plan to make all its London-based black cab and private hire vehicle (PHV) rides zero emission capable by 2027. This initiative places Gett ahead of the London Mayor's broader goal of achieving a net zero carbon city by 2030.

As of now, nearly 60% of all travel arranged via Gett's app involves electric or hybrid vehicles, a significant increase from just two years ago. Black cabs, in particular, have seen a notable shift towards more sustainable options.

In an effort to further encourage eco-friendly changes, Gett is offering a variety of incentives to its drivers. These benefits include discounts on charging, lower prices for home charging kits, and reductions in costs associated with electric vehicle (EV) rentals, warranties, and services.

Currently, every Gett journey in the UK is carbon neutral, achieved through a comprehensive offset program in collaboration with EcoAct. In 2023 alone, Gett contributed to the offset of 466 tonnes of carbon dioxide by supporting projects like the Maranhão Wind Power project in Brazil and the Sujawal Mangroves in Pakistan.

Additionally, Gett UK supports urban greening efforts by donating 2p from every ride to Trees for Cities, a charity dedicated to enhancing urban spaces with trees and vegetation.

Matteo De Renzi, Gett CEO, said: “Urban transport plays a pivotal part in the energy transition. UK cities are among the global leaders in EV adoption and we are proud to launch this formal commitment to facilitating emission-free travel for hundreds of thousands of our riders.”
