Tusker introduces new green initiatives

Tusker has introduced new green initiatives for fleet clients including advice on ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEV) and enhancements to its carbon offsetting commitment.

Following a thorough review of the environmental impact across all its activities, Tusker’s new initiatives are aimed at cutting carbon emissions and helping customers and drivers reduce their carbon footprint.

The company says its aim is to have only carbon neutral cars on the road within the next three years and, to help achieve this, the company have partnered with carbon offsetting specialists, Carbon Footprint.

By offsetting the tailpipe emissions for all new cars, all fleet customers’ drivers now have a carbon neutral car for the duration of the vehicle agreement.

The exact tailpipe emissions are automatically calculated for each car during the on-line quotation process, and drivers can then offset their projected carbon footprint by choosing one of three Verified Carbon Standard accredited projects. 

Chief commercial officer, Iain Carmichael, said: “This is a unique added benefit for our customers who are then able to utilise this carbon offsetting under business travel as part of their carbon management plan. To date, we have offset over 20,000 tons of carbon.

“We expect this to reach 30,000 tons by the end of this year, with a target of 60,000 tons during 2015,” he added.
