Main Stage
A Sustainable Approach to Accessibility for Restaurants
Supporting Small Businesses Through Sustainable Solutions
Tuesday, July 11, 2023, 1:50 PM - 2:10 PM

This year Uber Eats and Visa teamed up on a new program designed to support small-and-medium sized restaurants in their transition to more sustainable packaging solutions. A 2022 study by the US National Restaurant Association indicates that while transitioning to sustainable packaging is a priority to many restaurants, the cost—and continued supply chain issues faced by the hospitality industry—make it difficult. 

It's the hope of Uber Eats and Visa that this new program is a small step in a positive direction for small business owners. Together the two companies have committed $1M that will be accessible to 100 businesses in the form of sustainable packaging credits to purchase eco-friendly packaging to businesses in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Madrid and London. Attend this session to hear from Uber and Visa as they share their methods and takeaways from this sustainable campaign benefitting small and medium businesses.
