Delivery Hero publishes a Statement of Principles along with fellow European technology platforms

Today, four leading European technology platforms (i.e. Bolt, Delivery Hero, Glovo, and Wolt) co-signed a shared Statement of Principles.

The signatories of the statement commit to a set of principles that promote a purpose-driven business for European technology platforms. Delivery Hero and its co-signatories view the Statement of Principles as a basis for consultation with all interested public stakeholders. We look forward to being an active driver for the conversations around value-centric platform economies.

The principles signal a commitment of European technology platforms to:

  • Design strategies for reaching social, environmental, and economical goals while accounting for and eliminating negative externalities,
  • Be engaged with the cities and countries we operate in by promoting, amongst others, policy dialogues and public-private partnerships, 
  • Be responsible in the usage of data and commit to transparency and accountability of how algorithms work

We envisage this document as an open manifesto and welcome other platforms and technology companies to co-sign and contribute. We invite both industry and policymakers to the conversation on platform regulations to develop common rules that ensure a level-playing field that benefits everyone.
