Georgia’s Largest Limousine Service Becomes Carbon Neutral
Carey Executive Limousine works with Verus Carbon Neutral to offset Carbon Footprint
ATLANTA (March 16, 2009)— Carey Executive Limousine advanced its corporate social responsibility in supporting the environment by offsetting its entire fleet with a Georgia forestry project through Verus Carbon Neutral. “Our goal is to reduce our carbon footprint,” said Carey CEO, Mike Dangerfield. “Our fleet becoming Carbon Neutral is a good first step. We are looking closely at our entire operation to
find additional ways to reduce emissions.”
“We are extremely honored to work with Carey Executive Limousine,” said Verus Carbon Neutral’s Eric Taub. “They are practically a household name and leaders in the community. So much of what we do about stopping climate change is getting the word out.” Carey Executive Limousine offset the annual emissions of their fleet of almost 50 vehicles, the largest in the Atlanta area. Having been in business for over 40 years, Carey Executive Limousine is the first and largest franchisee of Carey Worldwide Chauffeured Services, and Mr. Dangerfield is still active in the company’s day-to-day operations. A Georgia forestry project, managed by Valley Wood Timber, was selected by Carey Executive Limousine to offset their carbon footprint. The project protects over 60,000 acres of forest and proceeds support the Humane Society.
Verus Carbon Neutral is a member of the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), the world’s first and North America’s only active, voluntary and legally binding offset trading system. Verus Carbon Neutral provides high-quality offset projects that are third-party verified by the CCX. The Environmental Defense Fund recently recommended 12 offset projects, of which, seven were registered on the Chicago Climate Exchange. To assure more funding goes to offset projects, Verus Carbon Neutral sets its price based on the CCX market price. According to their managing partner, Eric Taub, no other offset provider offers a more transparent or aggressive pricing structure.
