EmpireCLS Releases eBook On How To Be Greener Biz Traveler

Posted on April 24, 2013

SECAUCUS, N.J. — EmpireCLS Worldwide Chauffeured Services has released a new free eBook, From the Ground to the Sky: Your Guide to Sustainable Travel, to help the business travel industry minimize its effects on the natural environment.

The eBook’s advice includes best practices for solo travelers, from choosing the right airline to conserving energy at the hotel room, and also tips for company-wide initiatives, with several suggestions for improving a company’s overall environmental sustainability efforts.

Readers can learn about the practice known as “green washing,” and develop a keener eye for false advertising in products that claim to be eco-friendly.

The eBook lists several professional organizations that only accept the most eco-friendly businesses as members. Travelers who felt concerned about the sustainability of their hotels will find several resources to help them choose their lodgings more carefully.

The eBook was written by EmpireCLS CEO David Seelinger, who has been a strong advocate for environmental efficiency and green practices at his company and in the chauffeured transportation sector. From the Ground to the Sky: Your Guide to Sustainable Travel is the latest in the company’s efforts to preserve the environment.  

In particular, the eBook shines the spotlight on Green Ride Global, a Toronto-based business that helps car service companies keep track of their carbon emissions and holds them to the highest standards of sustainability.

Transportation is the second largest source of carbon emissions in the U.S., accounting for 28% of total emissions. And international travel is projected to grow to 1.5 billion trips per year by 2020, meaning increased pollution is also on the horizon. Only 8% of business travelers say they don’t have trouble finding eco-friendly options, so EmpireCLS wrote this guide to help travelers combat these troubling statistics.

EmpireCLS, a member of Green Ride Global, works closely with the company to keep track of its carbon emissions. These reports factor into EmpireCLS’s five-year goal to cut down on its total emissions by 20%. The company also offers a range of sustainable travel options including the Lexus 400h, the power hybrid V8 Lexus LS 600 HL, 75 of the diesel powered S350 Mercedes Benz sedans, and a fleet of bio-diesel powered Mercedes Sprinter vans.

EmpireCLS, the largest chauffeured transportation company in the world, provides many choices for the traveler who wants to ride sustainably without sacrificing comfort or style.
