Zerofootprint and Skymeter announce carbon auditing solution for vehicles



    TORONTO, Oct. 31 /CNW/ - Zerofootprint and Skymeter partnered today to
measure vehicular greenhouse gas emissions. Initial applications focus on
highly accurate measurement of corporate and individual CO2 vehicle emissions.
The service will combine Skymeter's extremely reliable GPS meter and
Zerofootprint's Carbon Engine. The precision and scientific accuracy of the
application heighten the market value.
    "Our partnership provides solutions for a low carbon economy," said Ron
Dembo, CEO, Zerofootprint. "Our new offering will accurately measure carbon
relating to travel and thereby help manage the risk associated with vehicle
emissions."
    Today's announcement coincides with the presentation How Green is Your
Tolling, recently delivered by Skymeter CTO, Preet Khalsa, at a transportation
conference in Halifax. The presentation focused on an incentive-based tolling
system that uses tax credits and other rewards for those who reduce their
driving.
    "Zerofootprint's software and our metering system offer unprecedented
opportunities to quantify carbon emissions from land transport. Together we
enable cities and organizations to reduce transport demand and monetize
emissions savings," said Kamal Hassan, CEO of Skymeter.
    Hassan and Dembo look forward to announcing partnerships with both
corporate and municipal clients in the near future.

    Skymeter Corporation is a Toronto based data-services operator enabling
location-based payments using financial-grade GPS telematics. Billing-delivery
services include time, distance and place, or TDP, metering for road use,
parking and PAYD insurance. Metering services incorporate methodologies for
both privacy and anonymity to ensure motorists enjoy complete privacy while
traveling and absolute confidentiality of their trips, equivalent to an
anonymous, in-car cell-phone that automatically pays for services based on
actual usage.
