Car Sharing: Drive smart, save money and lower your CO2 emissions!

We do love our cars and we need them for all sorts of reasons. However, the with the price of fuel rising, roads being congested and air pollution affecting our health. Perhaps we should be looking at alternatives!

 

Pilot projects for car sharing date back as far as the 1960’s. The first modern car sharing programmes were launched in Switzerland in 1987 and later  Germany followed suit. This relatively new idea then travelled to North America via Quebec City in 1994 and now car sharing can be found in most cities across the US and Europe and is utilised in many universities.

 

If you have to use transport then why not be a little kinder to our environment and consider the car sharing organisations available to us.

Based on calculations from the UK Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, cutting down your car journeys by only 5 miles a week could save 85kg of CO2. Also by choosing a car with the lowest CO2 emissions, you could save the equivalent of four months fuel a year!To be even kinder to our environment, why not consider using phone conferencingvideo conferencing or web conferencing –  there are many options available to you – make your impact positive, use technology, not travel whenever you can!
