With customers like Rivian, GM, BMW, and Bosch eBikes, Mapbox is setting the new standard in electric vehicle navigation and increasing EV adoption. We estimate this will 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 will accelerate driver adoption of electric vehicles such that by 2030, 50% of the vehicles forecasted to use Mapbox navigation will 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, will reduce emissions by 10% compared to the average internal combustion vehicle due to more efficient routing.

Our Logistics products improve dispatch and delivery rates for fleets from Instacart to DPD. 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 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 will be delivered by vehicles using Mapbox tools in 2025.

Our tools help users of land management and outdoors apps like AllTrails, Native Land, the National Park Service, and OnX to enjoy, respect, and protect the places they love. Our maps touch over 3.5 billion acres of protected areas and public
