Dott has completed the refurbishment of 10,000 shared e-scooters in a move to increase the sustainability of its micromobility operations.

This project will double the expected lifespan of the refurbished vehicles to seven years, thus cutting carbon emissions per kilometre by nearly 50%.

Throughout the undertaking, the scooters were dismantled, sorted into parts for recycling, repairing or reusing and then fully renovated and painted. This work took place in Lyon, France and Warsaw, Poland.

Dott’s refurbishment work reduces the need to purchase new vehicles, which is the largest factor in the company’s overall carbon footprint.

Meanwhile, Dott has also advanced its recycling rate. In 2022, it sent 90% of all waste to be recycled, compared to 80% in 2021. In 2023, the company aims for 95% of all waste being recycled.

Maxim Romain, Co-Founder and COO, Dott, said:

In 2022 we progressed towards mass adoption of our service, doubling the number of rides whilst continuing to drive down our carbon emissions. We have demonstrated our commitment to sustainability with a major refurbishment programme, fully rebuilding 10,000 e-scooters so far to double their lifespan, eliminating the need to manufacture more vehicles. By focusing on responsible operations we aim to keep generating a positive impact for our teams and the people living in the cities where we operate.

The 10,000 refurbished e-scooters are now operating in Dott’s active cities across Europe.
