Good for the people. Good for the planet.

Bird Canada is committed to enabling a more liveable, sustainable future by reducing gas-powered car trips, traffic, and carbon emissions. We’re continuing to evolve every facet of a more sustainable future and making the changes we need to bring our mission of making cities more livable to life.

A Green Lifecycle

Healthier cities begin with sustainable mobility. That’s why we focus on a green lifecycle—measuring, avoiding, reducing, and offsetting—to turn our vision into a reality.

Measuring Climate Impact

In order to accurately measure our emissions, we worked with CEA Consulting and an independent consultant from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to track the total environmental impact of our scooters from manufacturing to end-of-life.

We then compared the estimates from our lifecycle analysis against those of a similar independent exercise conducted by the International Transport Forum.

Meet the Eco Fleet

At Bird Canada, an important component of being climate friendly is how we design and engineer our vehicles. Our vehicles are designed in-house to be the longest lasting and most sustainable in the industry. We do this by:


Focusing on durability and battery life.

We are one of the few micro-mobility operators to design and engineer our vehicles in-house. That means we can thoroughly test and innovate on new battery forms. Our B3 vehicle has the longest lasting battery, is monitored in real time by a Battery Management System (BMS), and is the only IP-68 certified battery on the road.


Second life applications. and materials recycling

We partner with organizations that keep as much as 95% of our ferrous and non-ferrous materials and 86% of our e-waste components out of landfills.


Displacing car trips.

By helping communities build sustainable transportation habits, we are reducing the amount of carbon emissions and traffic congestion across the globe.


Using our data to inform sustainable infrastructure.

We analyze our data to understand how and where people use Bird Canada's vehicles to get around and use these insights to advocate for protected bike lane infrastructure to make sustainable transportation safer for everyone.

Reimagining Space

Bird eliminates the need to endlessly search for car parking, which causes traffic on already crowded streets and pollutes the air in the process. One traditional car parking spot can fit 10 scooters, and Bird reimagines these spaces as multipurpose parklets where dockless bikes and scooters can easily park.







At Bird, we mitigate our emissions and environmental impact* by:

  • Partnering with local utility companies to purchase green energy for charging our fleet.
  • Using e-vans and cargo trikes for collecting and redistributing our fleet.
  • Reducing carbon-intensive transport for employees, including remote work strategies.
  • Complying with applicable environmental laws and regulations.
  • Repurposing or recycling remaining parts with partners like the Landbell Group.
  • Testing innovative battery solutions, both integrated and swappable.

* This is dependent on market conditions and availability.
