TORONTO, Ontario — Green Ride Global (GRG), an environmental sustainability consultant and solutions firm for the ground transportation industry, has opened its first U.S. office in San Francisco as demand increases among such companies for greener solutions.
“Our membership across North America is rapidly increasing,” said Justin Raymond, president and CEO of Green Ride Global. “Market leaders in the ground transportation industry are acknowledging their need for third-party verified environmental programming as the industry undergoes a wave of change in how it handles and reports its ongoing environmental practices.”
Four of GRG’s most recent clients are Elite Transportation Services of Atlanta, Elite Green Car of Atlanta, Luxury Limousines of Sacramento, and Global Alliance Worldwide Chauffeured Services of Toronto.
GRG has launched clients of varying fleet sizes in a wide scope of markets including San Francisco, Atlanta, Sacramento, Cleveland, Toronto, and Ottawa, among others. As environmental issues continue to dominate political discourse and as an increasing number of corporations are selecting their ground transportation suppliers based on those companies’ environmental sustainability plans, companies in the ground transportation industry are adding guaranteed emissions reduction targets to their customer value proposition.
“Our U.S. base will start as a satellite office in San Francisco,” Raymond says. “There is such a notable ‘green’ presence throughout California. San Francisco was a natural choice for our first U.S. location.”
More space and favorable operating costs are two factors driving the move toward more spacious vehicles.
