In an effort to combat climate change, Uber announced that the ride-sharing company is calling on its drivers to switch to zero-emission electric vehicles (EV) by the year 2030. The company said its goal is to reach net-zero emissions within 10 years and become 100% emission-free by 2040.
California Governor Gavin Newsom recently signed an executive order that will ban the sales of newly built gas-powered cars by the year 2035. He said the ban would help in the fight against climate change as more people make the switch to electric, zero-emission vehicles. The order would still allow the sale and ownership of used cars.
