EdinaCars is Edinburgh’s 1st Carbon Neutral Private Hire Company. Our fleet is made up of saloon and executive cars as well as 6/7/8 seaters. We have recently purchased Toyota Prius Hybrids. The Hybrid Synergy Drive system and the numerous technological improvements allow the next Prius to achieve CO2 emissions as low as 89 g/km. We offset emissions from all our vehicles and office by planting trees and engaging in energy saving projects worldwide. Our current carbon credits are contributing to the development of small and medium Hydro Power Plants in Guizhou Province in Southern China. We use recycled products wherever possible and are committed to a continuous program of waste management in our office and to improve the environmental impact of our fleet. We will offset emissions for all our cash and account customers at no extra cost to them.
We have also installed Cordic cPAQ state of the art dispatch system in our office as there is a growing interest within the taxi and private hire industry to reduce their carbon footprint and operate more eco-friendly fleets,cPAQ's intelligent despatch system enables operators to reduce dead mileage - the non-paid miles - by efficiently allocating the closest vehicle to the pick up location and automatically choosing the optimum route to the pick up point and drop off destination. This reduction in mileage results in less fuel consumption and a reduction in CO2 emissions. cPAQ is the only taxi despatch system on the market that allows operators to track and report their CO2 emissions by vehicle.
