In their campaign entitled “We are green, but not with envy”, the company calls for accepting innovation and technological developments, and says “we can come to a solution only through dialogue, where all the stakeholders must be willing to make compromises”.

“We believe that technological development and our increased awareness go hand in hand. We believe that the resulting community solutions enable a better use of our resources, an improvement in the service quality and reduced pressure on our overly exploited planet – all in all, they serve the interests of each and everyone of us,” the company states on its website.

The company says that innovation is “the key to our future, it is not an alternative, but the only viable option.”

The Hungarian operations of Uber have been under fire since the government decided to take the side of taxi drivers, according to reports, after taxi drivers demonstrated in central Budapest for four days last month, requesting that Uber be shut down. Uber said at a press conference that it would stand by its drivers, after the government announced that unlicensed Uber drivers could lose their number plates if caught by officials.
