Uber Technologies Inc (NYSE: UBER), a transport company, has clasped the American food delivery industry with a 25% market share. The shares have maintained a positive momentum for a past couple of months. UBER stock was trading at a market price of $43.09 at publication time. Uber’s revenue surged from $17.45 Billion in 2021 to $31.88 Billion last year.
Uber May Eliminate Single-Use Plastic
The company is aligning its food delivery operations with carbon neutrality goals globally. Increasing carbon emissions are becoming a vital problem worldwide, leading to melting ice caps, climate change, spread of diseases and more. According to a software company WorkWave, the food delivery industry emits 4.6 metric tons of carbon annually.
A latest initiative by the company could help the food delivery giant meet the green end goals. Last month, Uber announced a slew of initiatives to go green. UBER stock has gained almost 15% since, let alone 20% in June 2023 before the recent decline. The company will reportedly promote sustainable packaging through discounts, incentives and more. Uber plans to eliminate plastic waste by 2030, and GHGs from deliveries by 2040.
Additionally, Uber claims that they are moving away from single-use plastic to more sustainable options. According to the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), an intergovernmental organization, 350 Million metric tons of plastic waste is generated globally.
