Transdev Group chooses EcoAct to offset fleet emissions during COP21

Transdev and its subsidiaries are part of the Caisse des Dépôts and were an official partner of COP21, the global conference on climate change, last December. Transdev On Demand division (composed of VISUAL, SuperShuttle and Greentomatocars) selected EcoAct to develop and implement the carbon neutral strategy for their fleet’s emissions during COP21.

Engaging customers in a carbon neutral service

VISUAL is a high comfort coach service and was the official transportation provider for over 28,000 accredited guests during COP21. In cooperation with VISUAL, EcoAct developed an online voting platform allowing COP21 official delegates to choose their preferred offsetting project out of three preselected projects. This platform raised awareness on the benefits of carbon neutrality amongst the COP21 official delegates that participated in the vote.
The Neema Project, which fights against deforestation and protects biodiversity in Kenya, was selected as the project that received the most votes. Located in the hearth of the Tsavo National Park in South-West Kenya, this project allows the protection of 170,000 hectares of forest and creates a natural corridor protecting biodiversity (more than 50 endemic and endangered species live there). Furthermore, over 90,000 trees have been replanted and 120 rangers were trained to protect the area. Overall, more than 400 jobs have been created in the region thanks to this project. It was elected « Best Foresty Project » by Environmental Finance in 2014.

SuperShuttle, a leading airport shuttle service, and Greentomatocars, an eco car corporate service, chose the Batang Project in Borneo dedicated to the protection of Malaysian forest and biodiversity. 25,000 hectares of tropical rainforest were rehabilitated by planting more than a million trees, avoiding around 100,000 tCO2eq per year. 340 endemic bird species and 20 mammal species were also protected, including the famous orangutans.

Thanks to complementary expertise and service offerings (coach, minivan, Sedan, VIP transfer, shared shuttle, airport shuttle), Transdev On Demand provides tailored, green transport solutions, in partnership with EcoAct. Expert in business and leisure tourism, Transdev On Demand is the mobility partner of corporations and institutions, which include American Airlines, Transavia, and Expedia.
