Operational carbon footprint for Mapbox offices and products tracked and offset since 2016.

Decarbonizing Transportation

With EV customers like Rivian, GM, BMW, and Bosch eBikes, Mapbox is setting a high bar in electric vehicle navigation and estimates that increased EV adoption could prevent 138 million tons of CO2e emissions from vehicles by 2030, equivalent to the annual emissions of 35 coal-fired power


Estimate based on the target that Mapbox products could accelerate driver adoption of electric vehicles such that by 2030, 50% of the vehicles forecasted to use Mapbox navigation may be electric (with 70% less emissions compared to internal combustion vehicles). In addition, we target that the remaining 50% of vehicles forecasted to use Mapbox navigation by 2030, while still being internal combustion vehicles, could reduce emissions by 10% compared to the average internal combustion vehicle due to more efficient routing. (Source: US EPA). Power plant equivalency calculated based on 2018 average annual emissions for coal-fired power plants in the US. (Source: US EPA)

Efficient Fleets

Mapbox Logistics products improve dispatch and delivery rates for fleets from Instacart to Picnic. Optimized routing, closer monitoring, and fewer missed deliveries, combined with expanded electrification of delivery vehicles, will reduce delivery emissions by an estimated 106 million tons of CO2e by 


Estimate based on the target that Mapbox logistics and fleet management tools could reduce road freight emissions per parcel by 20%, compared to the calculated average road freight emissions per parcel in 2020 (Sources: Statista, Statista, Pitney Bowes). This efficiency gain was then multiplied by the forecasted number of parcels that may be delivered by vehicles using Mapbox tools in 2025.
