    Infusing social impact into Uber’s business strategy

    Always at the forefront, Uber wanted to re-examine the impact its business and products could have on the world. Sweeping events like the pandemic and social unrest were taking hold in their own backyard, magnifying their desire to take a fresh look at what social and environmental impact could mean for them. How could they leverage their business for good and use their core competencies to better serve their customers and communities?

    We were brought in to create a global impact strategy for Uber that would harness their capabilities as a global leader in mobility and delivery to do good in the world, and resonate with diverse local communities around the globe.

    In a world where access to movement is unequal, Uber needed an ambitious long-term vision to drive all impact initiatives.

    Our work is focused across 4 pillars: 01 Economic Empowerment; 02 Safety; 03 Sustainability; 04 Equity

    Our strategy pinpointed four key areas that deliver on the vision by supporting causes that matter most to global audiences.

    Using the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals, we identified which goals will help deliver on these four pillars.

    SDGs are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed by the United Nations General Assembly to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.”

    We helped Uber write their 2021 global ESG report, identifying which goals will help them deliver impact across their four pillars.
