We see offsetting as the last alternative to being a sustainable company and service.
Our goal is that 70% of our cars will be electric or hybrid by the end of 2022. The fleet will be a mixture of plug-in hybrids and fully electric cars.
As we are not yet fully electric, we carbon offset the emissions from our customers' and operational staff' trips by 110%. We record the km's driven on each journey and then calculate the carbon emissions specific to the vehicle model used.
At the end of each yearly quarter, we summarize all emissions, and then carbon offset the collected, recorded emissions by 110%.
We are aware that there has been a lot of debate around carbon offsetting, so we choose to offset via UN certified Gold Standard projects only.
