Ride-hailing firm Lyft has released its plan to reduce carbon emissions after joining 902 businesses in committing to the Paris climate agreement.
Lyft says that its efforts aim to reduce emissions for the transportation sector by at least five million tonnes per year.
Its strategy involves launching a fleet of electric, self-driving vehicles on a mass scale.
The ride-hailing service has said all of its electric, autonomous vehicles will only use electricity generated by clean energy sources, starting with its self-driving pilot program that's launching in Boston later this year.
However, it has not been confirmed how many battery-powered, driverless vehicles will be used to launch the service by 2025.
Lyft has said, however, that it ultimately plans to provide one billion rides using electric, autonomous vehicles by 2025.
