Vehicles on the road account for nearly three-quarters of transportation CO2 emissions, and are one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gases worldwide.
Across the world, people are making more sustainable choices. The 2022 Edelman Trust Barometer found that 75% of us globally are concerned or fearful about climate change. Google searches for ‘climate anxiety’ have reached an all-time high this year – and we’ve seen searches for sustainable goods increase by nearly 5 times in 5 years.
Every day, people turn to search engines for information on climate change and ways they can take action. Vehicles on the road account for nearly three-quarters of transportation CO2 emissions, and are one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gases worldwide. To help address that, Google are giving people more choices on the routes they take when they have to drive and the impact on the environment.
ONE MOTO Technologies developed a range of vehicles to help your mobility choices become more sustainable from electric motorcycles, electric vans, electric bicycles and scooters. Available in five countries, the UK Headquartered operation has presence in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and are the first EV start up in the region specialising in last-mile delivery vehicles.
Fuel-efficient routing, for traveling sustainably
We recently posted an article regarding how telemetry will transform the food delivery industry: allowing complete fleet and rider management through ONE App. Optimising routes for EVs in delivery has seen an increase of 200% in productivity and 74% cost-savings, reduced working pressure and zero accidents – empowering fleet operators to make more sustainable choices on the road, and to save money while doing so.
In the UAE, there are currently 63,000 registered delivery motorcycles producing over 168,000 tonnes of CO2e each year, it’s killing 198,000 acres of forest each year too. With a relatively small country, the switch to EVs in delivery/gigeconomy would dramatically contribute towards the country’s green agenda.
The vision of ONE MOTO supersedes the customer facing presence. With a recent announcement of launching the first Smart Mobility and Innovation Centre in Dubai alongside the renowned university Rochester Institute of Technology
This agreement sees the two entities uniting to develop three new vehicles and battery swapping solutions, with a goal to export the technology globally. The mobile battery banks use AI and big data to ensure batteries are available whenever the riders need them with the pilot city being Dubai.

The climate crisis affects us all, and it can’t be solved overnight. We recognise the unique responsibility and opportunity that we all share to help in the fight against climate change – not just by cleaning up our own emissions (we positively impact 15 of the UN’s 17 SDGs), but by helping others to do the same.
The new fuel-efficient routing feature allows you to optimise your routes for efficiency – empowering you to make more sustainable choices on the road, and to save money while doing so.WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM – 2022
I hope that the continued momentum of the ONE MOTO Team of global ‘sustainabilists’ and their efforts to transfer knowledge in the realm of commercial, electric delivery vehicles will encourage you to consider, recommend and embrace the intentions we have to #bringchange.
