CityLoop customers travel climate neutral
Ride-sharing chauffeur service for business travelers reduces the number of solo travelers on the road while together with ClimatePartner it compensates for the CO2 emissions
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.
“Yes, we want our creature comforts – but when traveling with CityLoop we also want to make sure that our ecological footprint is on point. The ride-sharing model is not only efficient and extremely cost-effective, but also ensures there are fewer solo travelers on the road and therefore less pollution. State-of-the-art technology makes the vehicles we use exemplary in their class,” emphasizes Jörg Mayer, founder & CEO of CityLoop Travel GmbH: “Nevertheless, there are obviously residual emissions on every journey, and although a CO2 offset cannot avert such emissions, it can at least compensate for them in a certified form. We don’t have to think twice when it comes to supporting a recognized and highly meaningful carbon offset project with every ticket that also allows CityLoop guests to travel CO2 neutral. Furthermore, we will work diligently to further reduce the emissions of our fleet of first-class cars!”
