LOS ANGELESSept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —, the global innovator in airport parking and carsharing for travelers, announced today it has launched TRAVELCARbon, a program in partnership with Foundation, a non-profit organization leading the fight against climate change and climate change, that will allow for travelers to voluntarily offset their carbon emissions from their recent flight or car rental.

TravelCar set a goal of offsetting at least 1 million pounds of CO2 per year, which is the equivalent to 540 round trip flights from LAX to JFK.  To jumpstart its program, TravelCar has committed to offsetting the estimated annual footprint of its ten US employees, 52,920 pounds each, bringing its total at kickoff to more than 500,000 pounds.

“Whether its driving to the airport, flying to your destination, or renting a car upon your arrival, these small things add up to one big problem,” says Ahmed Mhiri, CEO of TravelCar.  “But we can all do our part to help combat climate change with carbon offsets.”

When TravelCar users offset carbon emission with a small donation, they can choose which Program they would like to contribute to: energy efficiency, forestry or renewable energy programs.

“Our motto is ‘Reduce what you can, offset what you can’t™.’  TravelCar encouraging its customers to offset their flights and car miles is helping to do just that and we’re proud they’ve selected us as their carbon offset partner,” said Eric Carlson, President of Foundation.

To encourage participation, TravelCar is rewarding users who make a donation with a 10% coupon toward their next parking or car rental reservations. Travelers can visit to learn more and make a donation.
