Corporate Cabs takes the equivalent of 283 cars off the road

Corporate Cabs takes the equivalent of 283 cars off the road

Premium taxi company Corporate Cabs’ commitment to sustainability continues – by the end of last year it had taken the equivalent of 283 cars off the road and will continue this trend in the year to come.

This was been achieved by replacing 26 per cent of its fleet with LPG Holden Caprice, and its sustainability programme which offsets all emissions from the Corporate Cabs fleet, including 400 owner-operators in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown.

Corporate Cabs chief executive Colin Samson says the company is proud to have reduced its carbon footprint by taking responsibility for its fleet’s emissions, and it’s good to see its programme have such a positive outcome for New Zealand.

“Our core business is providing transport of supierior quality for our many clients. It took a lot of research and self-education to find a programme which achieved the sought-after result of providing both realistic and tangible sustainability for us.”

The opportunity to add the LPG Holden Caprice to the fleet – which emits 185g of CO2 per kilometre, the lowest of any locally-built six-cylinder sedan – has made a considerable difference.

Holden Marketing Manager Marnie Samphier says the company is delighted it’s been able to help Corporate Cabs continue its commitment to sustainability.

“We’re very proud of our LPG Caprice, and it’s proved to be perfect for Corporate Cabs because it’s a luxury car that exceeds Euro 6 exhaust emission standards,” she says.

The Corporate Cabs Offset Programme is now in its fourth year, and the reported figures reflect the emissions accounted for in the third year of the programme.

Corporate Cabs have partnered with EnergyMad, the makers of the world famous Ecobulb for their Sustainability Programme.
