The Fuelcard Company has launched EcoPoint, a green upgrade for fuel cards to help customers offset their carbon footprint and enjoy greener driving, for less than 2p extra per day.
Coinciding with the 2010 budget supporting carbon reducing schemes within the transport sector, The Fuelcard Company has launched EcoPoint to offer its customers a practical way of reducing their impact on the environment while continuing to make every drop count at the pumps.
Every EcoPoint package purchased contributes to an extensive scheme to plant more than 100,000 trees over the next five years, thanks to a strategic partnership with registered charity the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT). This alliance will help customers offset their carbon footprint and will position The Fuelcard Company as one of YDMT’s biggest supporters.
EcoPoint is a bolt-on to existing fuel cards so customers do not need to change their current card. It costs 50p per card, per month.
In addition to supporting tree planting, customers receive a wide range of other green benefits including advice such as eco-driving, paperless billing and a quarterly newsletter keeping them updated on the tree-planting scheme.
EcoPoint was officially launched with the planting of The Fuelcard Company’s first tree at Airton, near Malham, North Yorkshire, one of the areas covered by the YDMT.
