Rising need for offsetting the entire carbon footprint
More and more businesses around the world set challenging ESG goals for themselves to stay carbon neutral and with that, they are contributing to a carbon-free economy. However, it is not just self-regulation in most cases. Most businesses request their suppliers to go for zero carbon emissions or transparently offset the carbon footprint of their activities when servicing them. This creates a difficult situation for small and medium-sized businesses, how to become carbon neutral having no implemented solution for that. The vast majority have an aged corporate fleet and don't know how to lower or offset the carbon footprint of their vehicles. On top, if decided to decarbonize, they might consider building a green brand around the company but want to avoid being judged as doing greenwashing.
How to decarbonize in an easy way?
We strongly believe that an affordable fleet management solution combined with access to the voluntary carbon credit market is the solution for small and medium-sized businesses to effortlessly comply with ESG requirements. Therefore, we developed urbaniqe that is a green fleet management app designed to change the way how businesses manage their vehicle fleets consisting of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. It turns your smartphone into a digital fleet assistant that helps you reduce fuel costs and make fleet administration more transparent. On top, urbaniqe gives you an in-app purchase opportunity to re-invest your savings into transparent carbon credits to offset your fleet's carbon footprint, meet ESG goals and build a green brand.
Lowering the carbon footprint of aged corporate fleets
The urbaniqe app is a green fleet management solution aiming to lower the carbon footprint in a revolutionary new way. With the extensive use of AI running on your mobile phone, urbaniqe continuously estimates your actual fuel consumption and CO2 emission. This gives you valuable insight into how large the volume of harmful greenhouse gases you produce when driving is. On top of that, the application gives you instant feedback on your driving behavior whether it is conscious, balanced, dynamic, speeder, or even aggressive compared to other drivers. With that insight, you can improve your driving style to save on fuel and maintenance expenses and lower CO2 emissions. Finally, the urbaniqe index is an overall compound rating of your eco-consciousness when driving based on driving style, CO2 emissions, and relative speed to traffic. It helps you to see the relative evolution of your driving behavior on an ascending scale from zero to ten.
Offsetting the carbon footprint with carbon credits
Lowering the carbon footprint is good, but not enough. What to do with what remains? Decarbonize remaining harmful emissions with carbon credits! Carbon credits are carbon offsetting assets issued by companies successfully invested in a green economy and accredited by international organizations. They represent amounts of CO2 and other greenhouse gases already removed from the atmosphere and stored in carbon sinks. Urbaniqe provides you easy in-app access to the voluntary carbon credit market, which means, within the app, you can in-app purchase transparent carbon credits to offset the total carbon footprint of selected refuels belonging to a project or representing a given period, e.g., a month. Around the transaction, you receive an official carbon offset certificate as proof of decarbonization that can be easily traced back to transparent international registries on the below website: https://www.urbaniqe.com/carbonoffsetcertificates. With this certificate, urbaniqe gives you transparent proof of the decarbonization made, that you can use to audit your ESG compliance, attach to proposals submitted to potential buyers requesting carbon-free operations, and avoid being judged as doing greenwashing.
