Yango and Sparklo Partner to Offer Ride Discounts, Supporting UAE’s ESG Goals through Recycling

Translation Company in Dubai

June 2024: Sherpa Communications continues to support Yango, the international ride-hailing service, in its new partnership with Sparklo, a global cleantech company transforming the recycling industry. Through this collaboration, Sparklo users in Dubai can earn points by recycling plastic bottles and aluminum cans up to two liters using Sparklo’s innovative reverse vending machines, known as Sparklomats. These points can be redeemed for 10% and 20% discounts on Yango rides. This initiative marks the first phase of a major collaboration, highlighting Yango’s dedication to minimizing its environmental footprint and promoting eco-friendly practices.

This partnership is in line with the UAE’s environmental initiatives, such as the ban on single-use plastic bags in effect this month and Dubai Municipality’s goal to collect and recycle 3 million pieces of plastic packaging in the emirate. Yango’s commitment to contributing to the nation’s ESG objectives is demonstrated by using AI & data-powered mapping, routing, and navigation systems. These systems optimise route planning by analysing vast amounts of historical traffic data and real-time updates, to determine the most efficient routes, reducing travel time and fuel consumption while minimising carbon emissions.

Sparklo has been at the forefront of promoting sustainable practices worldwide through its cutting-edge software and hardware solutions that utilise AI and machine learning to optimise recycling processes. With over 250,000 users globally and key local partnerships like Dubai Municipality, Carrefour, Accor, and ADNOC, Sparklo has collected almost 30 million plastic bottles and aluminium cans worldwide. In the UAE alone, Sparklo has amassed over 150,000 users, making it the most popular sustainability app in the region. Each day, Sparklo collects more than 180,000 bottles and cans for recycling, which is equivalent to collecting 2.5 bottles per second and almost 2% of all consumption in the country

Users can start recycling today and enjoy the benefits of discounted rides in Dubai, contributing to a greener and more sustainable future. Sparklomats are conveniently located across Dubai and Abu Dhabi in supermarkets, malls, cinemas, petrol stations, and other public places. Users can easily locate the nearest Sparklomat using the Sparklo App, which features an interactive map.

This long-term partnership aims to bring even more convenience and value to the communities in the UAE, with plans to expand the initiative to Abu Dhabi in the coming months.
