Mobike has been named among the 2017 Champions of the Earth by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), in recognition of their transformative contribution to the advancement of low carbon public transport.

Mobike is receiving the award in the Entrepreneurial Vision category, in recognition of achievements in applying an innovative business model to improve urban eco-mobility while actively addressing the challenge of urban air pollution and reducing carbon emissions.
The auction is held on Wednesday 14th of December in Paris. For more information and all hublot replica watches listed you can look at the Artcurial website. This is the first co-axial chronograph movement that comes from Omega and they used the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean for its launch. With this new rolex replica in-house chronograph caliber I think Omega created an absolutely great movement with magnificent specifications. Besides that, the Omega PO Chrono is cool and rugged dive/sports/traveler watch. A great cheap hublot replica improvement is the new bracelet with screwed pins! The previous Seamaster bracelets where a serious pain in the when it needed adjustment. So finally Omega delivers a bracelet that is on par!
On receiving the Award Hu Weiwei said, “When we first started Mobike, our goal was to change cities by making bikes available to everyone. The humble bicycle can not only change people and cities, but can also help change the world—both as a universal symbol of peace, and as a weapon in the fight against climate change. Indeed, we believe that innovation, technology, and public participation are essential to meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. That is why we would like to invite governments, NGO’s, cities, communities and businesses to join us at Mobike - together with the UN Environment - to embrace bike-sharing, and create a pedal-powered green economy for the future.”
Mobike helped start the UN Environment Assembly on Sunday by supporting the ‘Race to Beat Pollution’ bike ride in Nairobi city center.
Since launching 19 months ago 200 million Mobikers worldwide have collectively cycled over 18.2 billion kilometers, equivalent to reducing CO2 emissions by more than 4.4 million tons, or taking 1.24 million cars off the road for a year.
In early 2017, Mobike published its first bike-sharing industry white paper with Tsinghua University and the Beijing Tsinghua Tongheng Design & Research Institute. It displayed that in China bikesharing has helped double the rate of cycling, which now accounts for 11.6% of total transportation versus just 5.5% twelve months earlier.
By bringing bikes back to cities in China, and now in 11 more countries around the world, cycling is truly changing cities and is transforming how they work.
