We know
our shift

We've helped hundreds of companies make the green shift in mobility.

What is the green shift?

The European Green Deal aims to make the EU climate neutral by 2050, this includes reducing emissions compared to 1990 levels by 55% before 2030.


The shift to low-emission mobility is a central factor in achieving this goal. We need mobility with increased efficiency, vehicles with lower emissions and infrastructure that enables and incentivises modes of transport that are better for the environment.


We do our part by helping companies find and provide mobility solutions that are better for both the environment and their employees.

We help companies and employers make better moves every day so that we can all feel better about tomorrow.

We strive to make a wide impact

We offer companies the opportunity to reduce emissions in all areas of mobility with convenient and climate friendly fleets

By making our fleets available to employees beyond working hours we ensure our vehicles are better utilised, more cost-effective and have a larger positive impact

Cycling has clear health benefits that contribute to happiness and well-being in the workplace. We strive to make as many as possible move and feel better every day.

Our mission is to enable and promote sustainable mobility by providing cost effective and convenient zero emission fleets to employers.

Our circular economy approach means we care for the entire life cycle emissions of our fleets – we make sure our assets are used as efficiently as possible and offset all our emissions.

We work closely with our sustainability partners to continually hone our sustainability strategy and find new ways to improve our products and contribute to a better tomorrow.
