CityLoop customers travel climate neutral

Walldorf, May 8, 2019. CityLoop, the first ride-sharing service on the road for business travelers, actively supports a carbon offset project in collaboration with ClimatePartner, which is certified to VCS and CCBS Gold Level. This commitment not only means that all journeys of the business travel start-up are offset, but also that all CityLoop customers automatically travel climate neutral at no extra cost.

To offset unavoidable fuel emissions, CityLoop decided on the forest protection project April Salumei, Papua New Guinea. The vast area of pristine rainforest plays an important role in storing CO2 as well as being the home of countless species of birds, exotic animals, and plants. Financing from the project also provides support for indigenous peoples, school education, health care, and small businesses.

Walldorf, 30 April 2019.

The circular routes, also known as “loops”, connect hotspots such as airports and major corporations and are serviced by select, experienced chauffeur service companies multiple times during the day, following a fixed schedule.
