Lime and Aspiration Partner to Mobilize Riders on Sustainability By Supporting Tree Planting with Every Ride
We’ve joined forces with Aspiration, the “sustainability as a service” platform, to offer riders a simple, automated way to act against climate change. With this historic partnership in mobility and sustainability, Lime riders worldwide will have the opportunity to further contribute to decarbonization by funding the planting of a tree for each ride through Aspiration’s reforestation initiative. Aspiration members will be incentivized to choose a greener mode of transport with free access to LimePrime for up to 12 months.
We know most people want to take action to fight the climate crisis but can feel overwhelmed, not knowing where to begin. Our carbon-neutral mobility services and Aspiration’s fossil fuel-free financial options are two of the simplest and most readily available options to begin making daily changes to minimize climate impacts. With our emissions-free fleet, riders can breathe easier knowing their rides are powered by 100% carbon-free electricity and are contributing to cleaner air, safer streets, and more sustainable cities.
“Lime and Aspiration share a value of reducing carbon emissions globally, so we’re excited to work with them and help our riders make a positive impact towards a healthier planet.” said Sara Lannin, Head of Global Business Development and Partnerships at Lime. “This partnership also signifies the need for companies to collaborate and offer creative solutions in which we can help customers make simple, tangible changes as we fight the climate crisis. We’re excited that working with Aspiration will bring us closer to our mission to build a future where transportation is shared, affordable and carbon-free.”
Beginning in March in the US and April globally, an expansion of the Lime Hero program will give our riders the option to support tree plantings with every ride by rounding up the payment to the nearest dollar. Additionally, Aspiration cardholders will receive a new LimePrime promotional benefit, giving them free access to the monthly membership subscription, around $5.99/month, that waives the unlock fee on every Lime e-bike or e-scooter ride.
“We’re thrilled to work with a mobility innovator like Lime, a company that shares Aspiration’s vision to bring its customers accessible and positive environmental impact that they can easily integrate into their daily lives,” said Aspiration Chief Business Development Officer Tate Mill. “Aspiration and Lime are coming together to empower cardholders and riders to make meaningful sustainable impact on an everyday basis. Together, we are showing the world what mobilization of climate action looks like at scale.”
In the past year alone, Aspiration individuals and business customers have funded the planting of over 49 million trees, planting more trees than there are in New York’s Central Park every day. And to-date, Aspiration members have offset more than 2.6 billion transportation miles.
Lime leads the shared electric vehicle industry in setting the most ambitious carbon goal to date. In 2020, we committed to a science-based carbon target tied to the Paris Climate Accord and the goal of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Our target was validated by the Science Based Targets Initiative in 2021 and we must report its progress each year to the organization. We’ve also already begun to work toward this ambitious decarbonization goal with the rollout of its Gen4 e-bikes and e-scooters, which share a swappable battery that make operations more sustainable. We power our global fleet on 100% renewable energy, continue to add new local renewable energy partners in cities around the world to directly power our warehouses and fleet, and have started to swap our old operations vans with electric vans and e-cargo bikes.
