We’re strong advocates of the car-free city, and we see ourselves as catalysts for multimodality. By offering alternative transport options that complement public transit, we’re certain we can change the way people travel – making our mission of car-free cities a reality.
We run light-touch operations and power our silent vehicles with renewable energy and electricity. Plus, we’re building a service that’s accessible, affordable and inclusive everywhere we’re present. That means for non-riders, our employees, and all citizens within each local community.
Full lifecycle management
We’re working to reuse, upcycle or recycle 100% of used vehicles and parts, with scalable second-life applications for our batteries.
We’ve set a target of a 100% electric logistics fleet and renewable energy in our cities, with emissions of less than 20g CO₂ eq/km in all our markets.
We plan to exceed the 5-year lifespan for our vehicles, along with ensuring eco-conception and manufacturing in Europe.
Useful & affordable for local communities
Our service is designed to be accessible for all audiences. We embed ourselves in local communities and aim for equal coverage across the areas we serve.
Catalyst for modal shift
To achieve change in our cities, we aim to reach more than 30% multimodal trips and an average of over 2km per ride.
Safe for all riders
We work with a zero severe accident target, with fewer than 10 minor incidents per million rides.
Responsible & inclusive local employer
All Dott employees are fully contracted shareholders in our thriving company, and we’re building an inclusive and diverse workplace.
Long-lasting vehicles & in-house eco design
Our first generation scooters are still on the road over 2.5 years after launch. We repair our scooters and bikes using recycled spare parts and perform regular maintenance to ensure safety on the road with vehicles built to last. We’re designing our next generation scooters and bikes in-house for eco-conception and recyclability, and we’re working towards local manufacturing in Europe.
Monitoring & reducing emissions
We’ve compensated for all our emissions since our start in 2019, but compensation alone is not the solution. That’s why we calculate our emissions on the full scope 1, 2 and 3 of the GHG protocol, with a comprehensive and transparent methodology to monitor in real time and gain insights on lowering our footprint. We are on track to lower our 2021 emissions by 40% for every Dott km ridden, compared to 2020.
Lithium batteries pose one of the main sustainability challenges of our industry. Together with partners, we also work on second life projects for batteries. Our first initiative is live, storing energy for a solar power farm. In addition to eco-friendly end-of-life solutions, we’ve partnered with frontrunners in the industry to create a more sustainable battery design, which will be in the testing phase soon.
Accessibility & inclusion
We’re working on many social projects designed to support and transform communities. ‘Helping to help’ supports organizations and the people who work every day to make our cities a better place. We offer free and subsidized rides, give Dott employees the opportunity to volunteer in their neighborhoods, and encourage our riders to lend a helping hand and improve our cities.
