Fuel Card Services claims CO2 saving milestone
Published: 21 February, 2017
A green initiative has helped protect around 260 acres of Peruvian rainforest which locks up as much as one million tonnes of CO2 in trees, says Fuel Card Services.
The company partners the charity Cool Earth which aims to stop deforestation in the Peru. It helped Cool Earth launch its CO2 Count service which reports on vehicles’ greenhouse gas emissions for all customers. For every CO2 Count Certificate issued, Fuel Card Services makes a donation to Cool Earth’s community-led projects in Peru.
Commenting on the milestone reached by Fuel Card Services, Matthew Owen, Cool Earth's director, said: ‘We've been lucky enough to partner Fuel Card Services for the past three years. Thanks to them, there are a million fewer tonnes of climate-warming CO2 in the atmosphere.’
‘And as well as keeping 3,700 acres of at-risk rainforest safe from the loggers, Fuel Card Services has transformed lives. Their support has also equipped schools, installed safe drinking water, made childbirth safer and boosted incomes for some of the world’s poorest people.’
