SINGAPORE/JAKARTA -- Grab and Gojek, Southeast Asia's biggest ride-hailing and delivery superapps, have pledged their commitment to net zero carbon emission, leading the region's tech startups in adopting environment, social and governance (ESG) goals.

From July 14, Grab in Singapore started a new service that enables users to hail a hybrid car or an electric car for the same fare as its normal ride-hailing option. That is one of the company's latest initiatives to promote environmentally friendly transport systems.
