UN Names Mobike 2017 Champions of the Earth

NAIROBI, Kenya – China’s bike sharing operator Mobike has been honored the United Nations’ highest environmental award on 5 December, for building a pedal-powered green economy. It is remarkable as this company is part of a business model responsible for putting millions of bikes in China’s cities obstructing and ‘polluting’ public paces.
