Logan Green and John Zimmer

From its launch in June 2012, ride-sharing service Lyft has grown to provide around 1 million rides a day and currently has a valuation of $11.5 billion. Sheer volume isn’t the only driver for the company founder by Logan Green and John Zimmer, they are also committed to reducing the carbon emissions from transportation systems. In 2017 they pledged their commitment to the goals of the Paris Agreement and stated their intention to embrace electric autonomous vehicles powered by renewable energy. Lyft aim to reduce the CO2 emissions of the US transport sector by 5 million tons per year by 2025. Forward thinking with conscience.
