MUTE Partners with (more:trees) Tree Planting Initiative

Updated: Feb 4, 2022

Climate change is harming our planet, but if we all make a small change, we can make a big impact.”

A History of Sustainability

Since inception in 2016, MUTE has been dedicated to improving sustainability through offering affordable electric transport to riders across the globe.

MUTE believes individuals can make small choices to collectively create a big impact on climate change.

MUTE engaged a dedicated ESG Manager in 2021, and partnering with (more:trees) addresses the environment aspect of the 3 pillars the ESG stands for.

In conjunction to the electric scooter subscription business model, Australian entrepreneur, Patrick Davin, initiated dedicating funds to plant one tree in an Australian rural property for every new electric bike purchased by MUTE for its global fleet of electric scooters available on a subscription-based membership.

This ongoing commitment to foster a lower carbon footprint while growing the company has been a fun and green side effect of the MUTE Global electric {r}evolution.

2022 – The Future is Now!

Having successfully established the MUTE program in China and Indonesia, MUTE prepares for expansion to offer electric scooter and moped subscriptions in the United Kingdom and Europe.

Having grown beyond their initial South East Asian markets, MUTE has partnered with the more:trees program in the United Kingdom to continue this dedication to make the world a greener place.

What is (more:trees)?

By planting trees we can help sequester harmful emissions while providing co-benefits such as water filtration, shelter, food sources, poverty alleviation and biodiversity.

(more:trees) is a tree planting platform that works with tree planting partners across the world, ensuring trees are planted, cared for and supporting wider community benefits. They partner with tree planting partners across the world who work with local communities to restore healthy forests and reduce extreme poverty.

(more:trees) enables businesses to plant trees easily, helping sequester CO2 emissions in the future (across the tree’s growth life), while becoming a more sustainable brand.

(more:trees)’ tree planting projects also support numerous UN SDGs, including poverty alleviation, eradicating hunger, supporting wildlife and sea life, and promoting health and wellbeing.

(more:trees) is the perfect partner for MUTE and will provide a key step in MUTE’s global sustainability journey.

How will MUTE work with (more:trees)?

By partnering with (more:trees), MUTE’s commitment to plant a tree for every new bike it adds to its electric fleet stays a reality as the company grows into the UK and Europe.

Every new moped or electric vehicle in the region will provide a contribution to MUTE’s ‘tree inventory’ and not only reduce carbon emissions through electric transportation but help grow a forest at the same time.
