TORONTO, Aug. 28 /CNW/ - Lauching September 1st, AutoShare members can
drive emissions-free for less than half a cent per kilometer with offsets
provided by CarbonZero.
Autoshare members typically drive as much as 50% less after joining, a
savings calculated as over 1 tonne of CO2 per year. With over 6,000 members
driving as many as 3 million fewer kilometers this year, the benefit to our
environment is already considerable. Working with CarbonZero means that their
impact can now be reduced even further, or eliminated entirely.
"This is the first time anywhere in the world that car sharing members
can choose to offset each and every kilometer that they drive" says AutoShare
president Kevin McLaughlin. "We chose CarbonZero as our offset provider
because they're dedicated to providing real, measurable emissions reductions
in projects right here in Canada".
"As Toronto's favourite alternative to owning a car, AutoShare has been
pioneering affordable and environmentally-responsible services," says Howie
Chong, President of CarbonZero. "That's why we're so pleased to be working
with them to bring green solutions to consumers."
