Integrity Marketing announces the launch of new commercial fuel card 360FuelCard.com and their partnership with Carbonfund.org
Warrington, PA, May 19, 2009 – Integrity Marketing announced today that it is implementing a dual strategy in helping the environment by partnering with Carbonfund.org to offset its own fuel emissions and by launching the 360FuelCard.com, a commercial fuel charge card. By joining Carbonfund.org, the leading nonprofit carbon offset and climate solutions organization, Integrity Marketing intends to set an example through offsetting its own modest carbon footprint and, with the 360 branded fuel card, will help other businesses do the same.
360FuelCard.com will supply commercial businesses with a new charge card for their vehicle fuel purchases. Moreover, 360FuelCard.com has made an ongoing commitment to give back by donating 10% of all profits from the card to environmental causes across the U.S. including Carbonfund.org.
“Most companies need to purchase fossil fuels for the vehicles that move their goods or carry their salespeople,” said Steve Fowler, VP of Business Development. “We are giving them a way to reduce their carbon footprint by doing something they need to do anyway. We will also encourage our partners and customers to join with Carbonfund.org to directly offset their entire footprint. All of our cards are produced on recycled plastics and our reporting and invoicing is done online, reducing the paper needed by many programs.”
Through the CarbonFree® Partner program, 360FuelCard.com has joined a national
movement of businesses and organizations that are leading the fight against global warming. Carbonfund.org’s CarbonFree® Partner program supports third-party verified renewable energy, energy efficiency, and reforestation projects in the U.S. and abroad to reduce CO2 pollution and help hasten the transition to a clean energy future.
“We feel strongly that something needs to be done now, and that it is up to us,” says 360FuelCard.com President Peggi Howell. “Our background is in the fleet fuel card market helping companies purchase their gasoline and diesel fuel. We see this as an opportunity to help these companies make a difference every time they make a purchase and directly offset some of the CO2 released by the fuel they use.”
Eric Carlson, President of Carbonfund.org said, “We are proud to partner with 360FuelCard.com because of its commitment to minimize its carbon footprint. 360FuelCard.com shows how environmental stewardship can and should be part of a smart business plan.”
360 was founded based on the premise that companies need to purchase fuel as part of their daily operations and many want to do their part in offsetting the CO2 from this fuel. The new card offering is a world class fleet card product that offers one of the best programs available today. The 360 Fuel Card is accepted at over 160,000 fuel stations across the U.S. as well as at thousands of vehicle service providers. 360FuelCard.com is creating a Preferred Network of environmentally conscious petroleum marketers who want to make a difference. http://www.360fuelcard.com
