Micromobility specialist HumanForest is partnering with Deliveroo to help boost sustainable food delivery across London.
Both companies are committed to creating sustainable mobility solutions and the partnership also claims to offer Deliveroo riders an affordable payment model via the Human Forest electric bike platform.
Laura Elms, head of sales and partnerships at HumanForest, said the partnership has been designed with delivery riders “front and centre of mind”, providing access to affordable e-bikes.
She added: “The partnership will offer a sustainable and accessible platform which supports delivery riders whilst also bolstering our vision of a cleaner, greener world for all.”
Deliveroo riders will have access to the green e-bike platform by purchasing bundles of minutes as and when they need them, for making deliveries or for leisure, tackling the upfront costs of privately purchasing electric bikes.

Throughout lockdown, home delivery services have seen a spike in popularity. It is hoped the partnership will allow more businesses and consumers to make sustainable trips around the capital, offering a green mobility solution.
“At Deliveroo, we are determined to do our bit to help protect the environment,” said Andy Batty, director of operations, UK & Ireland, Deliveroo. “We are pleased to partner with HumanForest to not only boost sustainable delivery in central London, but to allow riders to take advantage of more affordable, clean and efficient modes of transport across the capital.”
