LOS ANGELES - Exclusive Sedan Service said today it has joined the Limousine Environmental Action Partnership, (LEAP) in an effort to reduce its carbon footprint.
LEAP, a Newton, Conn.-based company that promotes energy efficient strategies and environmental solutions for the executive/chauffeured ground transportation and limousine industry, has partnered with award-winning Exclusive Sedan Service to implement an ambitious multi-pronged emission reduction program designed to significantly reduce CO2 emissions by 2012.
"Exclusive's long-standing commitment to the environment is second to none in the chauffeured ground transportation industry and today we have extended our dedication with the addition of LEAP's Sustainability Framework," said Ron Stein, president of the 30-year-old company.
The Exclusive Sedan Service/LEAP program will integrate an aggressive sustainability initiative, apply innovations in technology and more efficient processes, and help formalize the company's dedication to implementing sustainable principles at every opportunity.
"We are supporting the commitment to sustainable practices that our clients are adopting and implementing," Stein said. "Brandan and I have always wanted to do the right thing for our environment, always recycling, having flex-fuel SUVs, hybrids, and integrating emission reduction and fuel efficiency improvements throughout every level of the company."
Exclusive Sedan, which won a 2007 LCT Operator of the Year Award, is rolling out environmentally focused initiatives within several core areas, including acting to reduce carbon emissions through new technologies, more efficient processes, and educating both their staff and customers.
Brandan Stein, the company's vice president of operations, said, "Promoting change is what Exclusive Sedan Service is all about. The other LEAP partners have already proven that greenhouse gas emission reductions and strong economic performance are not an either/or proposition. The bottom line is that environmental protection and sustainable business performance are inextricably linked. LEAP proves over and over that there is a very strong business case for sustainability today."
