Uber Advances in DevOps, Pioneers Sustainable Growth in Bid for Zero Emission by 2040

As Seen On

Uber, renowned for its ride-hailing services operating globally in over 70,000 cities, is now curating a significant blueprint for sustainability in engineering practices. At its core lies a resolute commitment to achieve zero emissions by 2040 and an unwavering focus on sustainable engineering principles. This ambition does not just resonate in Uber’s board rooms or policy strategies but extends profoundly into its DevOps—the lifeblood of Uber’s digital infrastructure.

Uber’s sustainability journey began in earnest in 2020 when the company pledged to be a fully zero-emission platform by 2040. The goal is ambitious, considering the challenges a behemoth like Uber faces: high energy consumption across international operations, immense logistics, and vast network connectivity. Consequently, Uber recognized the necessity for sustainability optimization on all fronts, further detailing not just an emissions target, but a broader vision of holistic sustainable engineering transformation.

The objectives of this organizational metamorphosis are impressively comprehensive. Uber started by identifying the areas ripe for sustainability improvement, acknowledging and willingly investing in the need for change. Not only did Uber adopt this transformation within its operations but it also needed to nurture a technology-driven environment conducive to sustainability, hence marking a cultural shift that would permeate all of the company’s echelons.

One of the standout solutions translating this vision into action was the formation of an Uber Green Team. This specialist group’s primary function is fostering community effort and knowledge across various developers and engineers. Through this knowledge sharing network, Uber encourages a sustainable engineering mindset company-wide, ensuring a consistent and thorough application of sustainability best practices.

Uber’s approach centralized on effective practices that fostered accountability and continuous improvement. Developers and engineers, for instance, were constantly encouraged to push their products towards sustainable boundaries. The stress on Sustainable Continuous Integration (CI) encouraged teams to integrate long-term sustainability into their continuous development lifecycle, offering proactive remedies to potential issues.

Uber also promoted a comprehensive cross-sectional approach, which involved improvements instigated from both higher management and grassroots levels. This dual accountability fostered a symbiotic development culture, with the bottom-up and top-down approach serving to embed sustainable thinking firmly into Uber’s operational fabric.

Ubiquitous adoption of these practices has resulted in environmentally friendly engineering becoming second nature within Uber. The impact of these transformations has rippled beyond the corporation, earning Uber recognition in the DevOps awards and cementing its position as a pioneering industry leader.

Uber’s journey towards sustainability is far from complete. However, its current DevOps accomplishments publicly exemplify an unwavering commitment to not just the ride-hailing industry but also to planet Earth. As it continues to pave the path in sustainable engineering, Uber keeps driving global business towards a more efficient and eco-friendly future.

Uber’s DevOps achievements will indeed remain integrated with the principles of sustainable engineering practices for years to come. Following a sustainable continuous improvement lifecycle echoes Uber’s steady progress towards their ambitious zero-emission platform goal. Yet, this is just another milestone on their journey to reducing carbon footprint, promising a greener future in the world of global business.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
