New from Empire CLS Worldwide Chauffeured Services is a customized trip receipt that enables clients to accurately track and report their surface transportation-generated carbon. This new service fills a critical “data gap” for companies dedicated to maintaining a credible environmental sustainability program by providing precise carbon emissions readings relating to chauffeured transportation.
“While companies with advanced carbon-reduction travel programs have been tracking their environmental impact with regards to air transportation, hotels, and meetings with a fair degree of success,” said David Seelinger, Chairman & CEO for EmpireCLS, “it has been extremely difficult to compile the same type of data for the chauffeured transportation sector — until now.”
According to Seelinger, this data is now audited through EmpireCLS’s sustainability program, Green Ride Global, and compiled in a detailed report. This document provides a comprehensive analysis of distance traveled, fuel consumed (gasoline or diesel), overall fuel efficiency (miles per gallon), green house gas emissions (metric tons CO2e), and green house gas emissions intensity (metric tons CO2e/100). The report further tracks carbon generation by vehicle category (sedan, SUV, van, or bus).
The document is a thorough tracking tool, which over the course of a year, can clearly illustrate the most effective means of carbon reduction though the strategic use of chauffeured transportation assets. It is especially useful in tracking carbon management from year to year, as companies seek to justify the effectiveness of their sustainability programs.
The customized trip receipts are available to EmpireCLS clients at no additional charge.
EmpireCLS Worldwide Chauffeured Services is a serious contender when it comes to preserving the environment, with carbon tracking procedures that follow emissions factors used by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). EmpireCLS’s environmental measurements follow the ISO 14064 GHG Measurement Standards, and the principles and protocols of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the World Resources Institute (WRI). EmpireCLS is also a partner of the US EPA Climate Leaders Program.
“We are committed to reducing green house gas emissions by 20 percent from all areas of our companies business over the next five years,” said Seelinger. “If every North American chauffeured ground transportation company committed to similar results, the industry could save over 490,000 metric tons of carbon annually, which is the equivalent of taking 100,000 cars off the road, and the million barrels of crude oil required to fuel them.”
EmpireCLS is one of the largest chauffeured transportation companies, operating worldwide.
