MiX Telematics, a global provider of vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions, has taken a leading step in the Telematics industry by launching the MiX Carbon Offset Initiative (COI) that is carbon neutrality and offers an industry-first solution to its customers.
The service helps fleet operators take responsibility for their carbon footprint by guaranteeing a secure, accessible and cost effective way to offset the greenhouse gas emissions caused by their fleets. MiX Telematics has also become carbon neutral and is voluntarily submitting a response to the Carbon Disclosure Project for 2011, a globally recognised non-profit organisation which allows leading organisations to disclose their CO2 emissions for climate change analysis.
The road transport industry alone is responsible for 18 percent of global CO2 emissions. “Considering this statistic and the fact that we service the fleets in this industry, the decision to get involved in carbon offsetting came as a natural step towards sustainability,” says MiX Telematics general manager for sales and marketing, Brendan Horan.
