Indonesian ride-hailing and delivery company Gojek has announced plans to solely use electric vehicles in its fleet of cars and motorcycles by 2030 as part of its sustainability strategy outlined in the company’s first sustainability report, CNBC reported.

The target for the company was to reach zero emissions, zero waste and zero socio-economic barriers by the end of the decade, co-founder and co-CEO Kevin Aluwi told the news outlet.

He noted that Gojek will invest in a series of electric vehicle pilot programs across Southeast Asia in the coming years. Overall, the company has around one million drivers in the region.

Gojek has already seen strong interest from battery manufacturers, nickel providers and Indonesian authorities keen to assist with the shift to green energy in the world’s fourth most populous country and in surrounding countries where it operates, Aluwi said.

Great interest from members of the battery supply chain

“Indonesia is one of the largest motorcycle-based transportation countries, so there’s a ton of interest around this from all kinds of parties and we see ourselves primarily as a facilitator in making this happen,” he added.

The plans were announced in the company’s first sustainability report released on April 30, which details its environmental, social and governance targets. The goals are to be disclosed and reviewed annually.

Gojek is currently in the process of merging with Indonesian e-commerce portal Tokopedia  to form a new company called GoTo which will be followed by an initial public offering
