Take a Green Ride Down the Las Vegas Strip

Posted on December 1, 2008

LAS VEGASCLS Las Vegas, a major luxury ground transportation company serving Las Vegas, has embarked on a comprehensive environmental sustainability program to reduce the environmental footprint of all aspects of its business.

 

Using the services of Toronto-based Green Ride Global, a firm that provides environmental sustainability programs for the transportation industry, CLS Las Vegas has designed a carbon reduction strategy aimed at achieving a greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction of 20% during the next five to 10 years through fuel efficiency, the transition to new technologies, reduced electricity use, waste diversion, recycling programs, and employee education.

 

Recognizing the need for environmental stewardship in ground transportation, CLS Las Vegas has implemented an Environmental Management System that is ISO 14001 compliant and qualifies them for inclusion in the U.S. EPA Climate Leaders program.

 

Some of the initiatives it has already implemented include: establishing an in-house environmental committee; evaluating the latest in hybrid and alternative fuel vehicle technology; measuring, monitoring, and reporting on business travel and staff commuting; transitioning to a paperless office; retrofitting office lighting; diverting waste through a company-wide recycling program; and choosing biodegradable solvents and cleansers for vehicles and office.
