By driving Yoogo Share’s pure electric cars, our members are reducing their carbon footprint. In choosing to share EVs, instead of driving vehicles that burn petrol or diesel, Yoogo Share members are contributing to improved air quality and reduced emissions in New Zealand.
CARBON EMISSION SAVINGS TO DATE
How we calculate carbon savings
We calculate carbon savings on the km’s our members have travelled, based on the average carbon emissions of vehicles similar to our fleet - by driving Yoogo Share electric cars instead of vehicles that burn petrol or diesel, you’re contributing to improved air quality and reduced emissions..
Our calculations are made in accordance with the Ministry for the Environment's Guidance for Voluntary Greenhouse Gas Reporting, which considers the generation of power by Meridian Energy renewable sources which power our chargers.
Evans Pass Restoration Planting
To celebrate our members reaching 50 tonnes of carbon savings, we headed to Evans Pass in September with the Department of Conservation, Meridian Energy and Hyundai NZ to plant 1,000 native trees, to help restore the native ecology in the valley.
With help from our foundation business members from Beca and Christchurch City Council, business members from Waste Management, private members and the Air New Zealand Green Team, we made light work of this mammoth task.
