CarbonFree® Event Transportation through Carbonfund.org Partner The Convention Store
Thursday, 27 September 2012
According to a study by the American Bus Association, motor coaches are the most fuel-efficient transportation mode in North America, in terms of passenger miles per gallon of fuel. As a result, motor coaches are on average seven times more fuel-efficient than single occupancy automobiles, making motor coaches the most environmentally-friendly option for group transportation needs.
Carbonfund.org makes it simple for environmentally-conscious transportation companies, such as CarbonFree® partner The Convention Store (TCS), to further enhance their fuel-efficient coaches by offsetting fuel-related emissions. TCS specializes in providing ground transportation services to large-scale meeting planners, conferences and events throughout the United States and Canada.
TCS monitors, designs and implements the most efficient travel routes for their clients to decrease the distance of each trip; then they augment their large-capacity fuel-efficient transportation services by offsetting all carbon emissions from their motor coach services. This in turn supports Carbonfund.org’s clean air and carbon reduction technology projects.
“We chose to partner with Carbonfund.org because they not only offer ways to offset our carbon footprint but are building a network of other companies that care about our environment as much as we do,” says TCS CEO Sean Higgins. “It is amazing to watch the list of partners grow and know the amount of change that we will all bring by partnering with Carbonfund.org.”
