Sustainability is no longer a mere buzzword for organizations —it's a necessity. As businesses worldwide strive to reduce their carbon footprint and achieve net-zero targets, the transportation sector plays a crucial role in this transformation. Zeelo, a leader in corporate transportation solutions, is at the forefront of this green revolution, offering innovative, environmentally-friendly corporate shuttle services.

The Need for Sustainable Corporate Transportation

Employee transportation is becoming an integral part of daily business operations, significantly contributing to an organization’s overall carbon emissions. Traditional transportation methods, such as diesel-powered vehicles, are major sources of pollution, making the shift to sustainable transportation alternatives not only beneficial but essential for businesses committed to environmental responsibility.

Transportation is one of the biggest contributors to CO2 emissions, playing a significant role in climate change. It might seem obvious, but personal vehicles produce more CO2 per mile than shared transportation options.

As remote workers head back to the office, the number of people driving alone to work remains high. A survey by Statista found that even with many people working from home, 63% of workers still commute by car.

The typical American commute is about 15 miles each way. This is how it adds up in CO2 emissions per year for different types of personal vehicles:

  • Small car: 2.1 tons CO2e
  • Midsize car: 3.9 tons CO2e
  • Full-size car/SUV: 5.7 tons CO2e

While the Environmental Protection Agency is pushing for a faster transition to electric vehicles, this change won't happen overnight. A report from the New York Times noted that in 2021, less than 1% of the 250 million cars on US roads were electric. Therefore, even getting a small portion of commuters to switch from cars to cleaner, shared transportation solutions could significantly improve air quality and lower emissions. 

Here at Zeelo, we like to boast that every time we provide a transportation alternative to 100 riders, 403 kg of Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is reduced each day, amounting to 91 tonnes per year – the equivalent of planting over 600 trees! But there is still so much more we can do!
