Unwire and sustainability

At Unwire, we work with transit agencies and cities to enable them to become more sustainable and to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 11 to make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. It is at the very core of our daily work.

More and more cities are actively planning how their public transit systems can work better for their communities, aiming to encourage people away from reliance on private cars and to cut emissions and meet ambitious climate goals. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has put into stark relief the impact private cars have on pollution and emissions levels. During the global lockdown pollution and emission levels fell sharply to the lowest recorded levels for decades. We also saw the importance of a more inclusive public transit system which works for the many and not just the few.

Our work with mobile mobility platforms is at the very centre of all of this.

Some cities and transit agencies are just at the beginning of their journey to become more sustainable and inclusive, and others have already started to make an impact but aim to do even better. 

We are dedicated to helping realise these ambitions, whatever stage transit agencies and cities are at, and to innovate rapidly as situations and demands change.

Sustainability is embedded in our company culture — we continuously work to reduce Unwires carbon footprint.

  • Our office is located in Copenhagen's first climate-resilient quarter, Klima Kvarter. 
  • We aim to eliminate single-use plastics in the office by providing reusable mugs, glasses and plates. Drinking water comes from the taps and not water coolers.
  • We reduce our food waste by offering staff the correct amount of food at the company subsidised lunch and encourage employees to take leftovers home.
  • We take part in community recycling programmes.
  • Our office is close to multiple public transit options and we offer subsidised public transit passes to our employees.
  • We use virtual meetings and presentations minimising the need for travel, especially as Unwire works with customers across the globe.
  • We positively encourage colleagues to work from home where possible.
  • We turn off lights and electrical appliances overnight.
  • We have an opinion about who provides energy to our office — some companies choose to use green energy providers, however Denmark obtains 47% of energy from wind we are already pretty sustainable as a country.
