The new update of Google Maps now shoes eco-friendly routes to the users. 

The application will notify routes that are picked based on low carbon footprints including traffic and roads. All these routes are those routes that would be utilized by the US in the coming future for trade purposes. 

It will also provide users with a lot of eco-friendly options. It will indicate the fastest routes available to the users with less traffic. The search engine, owned by Alphabet, said it uses emissions data based on testing across different types of cars and road types, drawing on insights from the US government’s National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL). 

The app also signals low emissions zones such as Germany, France, the Netherlands, Spain, and the UK. “From Amsterdam to Jakarta, cities around the world have established low emission zones – areas that restrict polluting vehicles like certain diesel cars or cars with specific emissions stickers to help keep the air clean,” Google said in a blog post.

Google maps will compare all sorts of vehicles present on such routes as car, cycling, public transport, and other travel options in one place instead of toggling between different sections in a new feature being launched this year.

This move is taken against an initiative to make the world cleaner from carbon and GHS emissions by 2030.
