Ooredoo has announced that it is to sponsor Falcon Ride’s new eBikes initiative, which offers sustainable transport around Doha.
The new eBikes, powered by clean energy and sporting the Ooredoo logo, will allow users to collect a bike and ride within approved areas in Doha, the company has said in a statement. The eBikes will operate via Internet of Things powered by Ooredoo’s network.
The new sponsorship is the latest in a programme of initiatives aimed at protecting the environment as part of Ooredoo’s corporate social responsibility strategy, which includes a firm commitment to sustainability in line with the United Nations Sustainability Goals, the statement notes. The fleet of eBikes will be deployed gradually starting Wednesday. Available eBikes can be found via the O-Falcon app, which can be downloaded for iPhone and Android.
Sabah Rabiah al-Kuwari, director of PR at Ooredoo, said: “Following on from previous similar initiatives, we’re delighted to be working with Falcon Ride on this worthwhile new venture. Many major cities around the world have clean energy transport options such as these, and we’re proud to be contributing to developing sustainable transport in and around Doha to ensure a sustainable future for generations to come.”
Hussain Abdulla, co-founder and managing director of Falcon, added: “We are proud to be associated with the nation’s leading telco operator, Ooredoo. We plan to bring more eco-friendly mobility solutions to the country, aiming to facilitate carbon footprint reductions by providing such mobility solutions. This is another proof of our ability to work alongside corporates to provide sustainable transportation solutions and promote clean energy in line with Qatar National Vision 2030.”
