Sustainable Environmental Travel is at the heart of what we do. Utilising electricity in favour of traditional fossil fuels ensures that CO2 emissions and the impact on the environment are substantially reduced.
Official CO2 Emissions data shows that the Tesla emits 0g/km ensuring sustainable travel compared to a Mercedes C-Class 1.6 Saloon with 155g/km emissions.
There is a large emphasis for both individuals and companies to reduce their carbon emissions. This is in line with most organisations corporate and social responsibility targets. The Tesla Taxi Company is committed to sustainable environmental travel and helping you and your business achieve those commitments.
Utilising the newest technology in the Ultra Low Emissions Vehicles (ULEVs) market we are able to assist the government in achieving their carbon plan. You can be involved too by choosing The Tesla Taxi Company as your environmental travel transport of choice when travelling.
The governments target on carbon emissions is a reduction of at least 80% by 2050 through investment in energy efficiency and clean energy technologies. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 13 provides an insight into the global crisis facing our planet in terms of climate change. The only way we can help achieve these goals is by working together to accomplish decarbonization of all aspects of the economy. Environmental Travel is one way of contributing. The aim is to ultimately slow and reverse global warming and provide a better environmental future for everyone.
Climate change is reaching alarming levels in large part due to emissions from burning fossil fuels for transportation and electricity generation. In 2016, carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration levels in the atmosphere exceeded the 400 parts per million threshold on a sustained basis – a level that climate scientists believe will have a catastrophic impact on the environment. Worse, annual global CO2 emissions continue to increase and have approximately doubled over the past 50 years to over 43 gigatons in 2019. The world’s current path is unwise and unsustainable. The world cannot reduce CO2 emissions without addressing both energy generation and consumption. And the world cannot address its energy habits without first directly reducing emissions in the transportation and energy sectors. We are focused on creating a complete energy and transportation ecosystem from solar generation and energy storage to all-electric vehicles that produce zero exhaust emissions. Since the onset of travel restrictions due to COVID-19, we have seen dramatic increases in air quality across the planet, as well as projections for CO2 emissions to drop in excess of 4% in 2020 compared to pre-COVID-19 levels, according to researchers.
Because these improvements in air quality and reductions in CO2 are a result of a global economic disruption and not due to systemic changes in how we produce and consume energy, they are not expected to be sustained absent intervention. However, these changes have shown us the positive impacts of reduced pollution in a very short period of time. We believe that we all have an unprecedented opportunity to learn from this disruption and accelerate the deployment of clean energy solutions as part of a recovery for all economies throughout the world, and we will actively continue to advocate for the realisation of these long-term changes.
