HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – Best Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation, based in Huntington Beach, Calif., has embarked on an aggressive environmental sustainability program to reduce the environmental footprint of all aspects of its business, including “the greening” of its executive ground transportation fleet.

Using the services of Green Ride Global, a North American firm which provides environmental sustainability programs for the transportation industry, Best Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation has committed to annually reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through fuel efficiency, the transition to new technologies, reduced electricity use, waste diversion, recycling programs, and employee education.

“What some companies are calling a ‘green fleet’ merely consists of parking a hybrid on their lot,” says Justin Raymond, president and CEO of Green Ride Global. “However, what Best Transportation is doing is really addressing climate change by transforming its business accordingly and committing to reduce its emissions at source.”

By implementing fuel-saving technologies and chauffeur education on enhanced fuel-efficiency strategies, Best Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation will reduce the environmental imprint of its vehicles without resorting to a full-turnover of its luxury fleet.

Many of Best Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation's corporate clients have committed to reducing their own emissions. “We are proud to add our environmental initiatives to the cost, service, and quality we offer our clients,” says Robert Vaughan, president and CEO of Best Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation. “Our clients are choosing suppliers that can help them achieve their own corporate environmental goals, and by virtue of using Best Transportation, our clients will reduce their Scope 3 emissions,” continues Vaughan.

GHG emissions caused indirectly by an organization’s or individual’s activities are called Scope 3 Emissions. For example, a company that sends an employee to the airport in a taxi cab is responsible for the emissions caused by that trip, even though that company is not in the taxi business.
