One thing is clear

We cannot afford to wait to act against the threat of climate change. We must work together to protect our planet and people and ensure a greener, more resilient future for us all. And each of us has a part to play. 

For every 10km ridden on a Beam instead of a car, you save the earth 2.65kg of CO2 emissions.

The UK hosted the UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in partnership with Italy in November 2021 to bring the world together to commit to urgent global climate action. But COP26 is not the end goal – it is just the start of a decade of action on reaching 1.5C. We can only rise to the challenges of the climate crisis by working together and by Making the Change to more sustainable lifestyles choices. With road transport accounting for 10% of global emissions, and its emissions rising faster than that of any other sector, it’s never been more important to embark on a mission without emissions.

Johnny, 35, Barista

Johnny’s beaming with joy these days, even if we do say so ourselves. A new Brisbane citizen and full-time Beam commuter, Johnny quickly sold his car when he started noticing e-scooters and e-bikes available for use around the city. Proudly living the car-free lifestyle, Johnny may have filled up his last fuel tank ever.

Emilie, 21, Marketing Associate

Given Emilie works for a sustainability startup, she needs no introduction on the advantages of green living. For her, it’s second nature. She’s passionate about the environment and feels everyone should do their bit to help reduce emissions. Whether it’s scooting to work or visiting friends nearby, Emilie’s mode of choice for short journeys is always Beam. 

Kylie, 52, Travel Writer and Podcaster

An avid adventurer, Kylie depends on ebikes to move around the city every day. For her, there’s not much that comes close to that wind-in-your-hair feeling and thrill of navigating traffic as on two wheels. Kylie dreams of a world where cities of the future are filled with bikeways, expansive green spaces, clean air and e-mobility as standard. What’s your view?
