In today’s modern world being green and adopting an earth-friendly attitude are just parts of life. That is why Olympus Worldwide chauffeured services promises “black cars” and a “green business”. Some may ask what is meant by “green business”. We all recognize global warming as a catastrophe and understand that the burning of fossil fuels in gasoline only aggravates this problem; that is why Olympus Worldwide implements a unique environmental plan “based on the belief that the uncertainty and risks presented by global warming are so great, it is better to take action immediately rather than to wait for scientific research and technological improvements to ‘fix’ climate change.”
In fact, Olympus is a founding partner of Limousine Environmental Partnership (LEAP), whose mission is to “Reduce, Renew and Offset.” These three goals mean that Olympus Worldwide attempts to reduce its carbon emissions, support renewable energy, and fund other carbon reduction programs. The first goal Olympus meets by producing “Carbon Emissions Inventory Assessment[s]”. In addition, educating the rest of the transportation industry about the problem of climate change is clearly a big part of this goal and it is something that Olympus Worldwide takes seriously. The second goal is supported by Olympus Worldwide’s investment in a fleet of flex fuel Hybrid vehicles that use renewable energy. Olympus Worldwide is doing a bang-up job when it comes to the third one of these goals; Olympus Worldwide really reaches high and can now boast of having one hundred percent carbon offsetting.
As if that was not enough when it comes to environmental protection, Olympus Worldwide is also very responsible when it comes to printed materials. Confirmations, invoices, receipts, and the like are managed electronically via e-mail and digital formats. This has cut the company’s paper usage by sixty-five percent and what it does need to have printed (e.g. brochures) is printed on recycled paper.
Additionally, Olympus Worldwide participates in “a buy ‘green’ preferred supplier partnership” and only purchases office equipment (e.g. computers, software, etc.) and office supplies (e.g. notepads, pens, etc.) “from companies that have established sustainability programs.” One more thing, in support of sustainability all light fixtures, both inside the cars and at the offices, “are now equipped with Energy Star certified compact fluorescent light bulbs” which maximize energy efficiency, so as to outclass traditional light bulbs by seventy-five percent.
With all this in mind, be green and choose Olympus Worldwide chauffeured services the next time the need arises.
