From roaming their habitats without leaving as much as a carbon pawprint to putting wings to work to build stronger communities, animal behaviour can provide humans with valuable lessons to live and move more sustainably.
Out of the 8 million species roaming the planet, only humans fill the air with toxic CO2 emissions, destroy the world’s habitats, and take more than they need for personal gain. As a sustainably-driven company on a mission to change mobility for good, TIER believes that animals are the role models humans need to create healthier, happier cities - it’s time to put the interest of the herd first, and behave like animals.
Move Like an Alpaca
Humans can learn a lot from Alpacas about living sustainably. Their padded feet don't hurt the soil, they graze gently to protect the plants they consume, and they are pretty fuel-efficient. We can’t all be as inspiring as the Alpaca, but TIER definitely tries! TIER's vehicles are fully-electric, producing no CO2 and the company has been climate-neutral for a few years already. This means that when you move around your city on a TIER, you’re moving without harming the environment, a little like an Alpaca.
Give Like a Bee
Bees take what they need for their hive and pollinate the world with new life as they go. In doing this, bees potentially contribute towards 15 of the 17 United Nations Development Goals (SDGs), and they don’t even know what an SDG is. Like bees, TIER’s purpose also goes leg-in-leg with doing what it can for its habitat - it strongly supports and contributes to 5 Sustainable Development Goals…not quite as buzzing as a bee, but TIER is doing its best.
Share Like a Bonobo
For a lesson in kindness, there is no better teacher than the bonobo. Bonobos are governed by females, they engage in sex to maintain a peaceful collective temperament, and are natural sharers. They enjoy sharing food with other bonobos, and never outgrow their willingness to do so. So why not be a little kinder like the bonobo, ditch your car, and choose a mobility option that you can share with your community. Sharing a TIER means more space in your city, less CO2, fewer traffic jams, and no wasting time looking for a parking spot.
Help Like a Wolf
Wolves play an important role in their habitats. Wherever they roam, they help revitalise and restore ecosystems and increase populations of countless species. Wolves influence animal population, changing the browsing and foraging patterns of species and how they move about, often altering the landscape itself. This behaviour can teach humans a lot about their potential and influence to beneficially alter their own habitats like riding 2-wheeled emission-free vehicles that decrease the amount of CO2 in the air.
