(3BL Media) Portland, OR – September 4, 2012- Better World Club, the nation’s only environmentally-friendly auto club, announced today that it would provide the nation’s first carbon neutral roadside assistance. As part of its mission to promote social and environmental responsibility, Better World Club will estimate the tons of CO2produced each year by trucks providing services to its members, and purchase the equivalent in US-based carbon offsets.
President Mitch Rofsky explains, “Whether your business involves manufacturing, fracking, or just driving, American companies need to assume responsibility for zero environmental impact. While carbon offsets aren’t the final answer to climate change, they’re a crucial step to minimize greenhouse gases. We hope other auto clubs will follow us, so that all of America’s roadside assistance can be carbon neutral.”
Neutralizing the greenhouse gasses generated by its service providers is the latest in a series of pioneering environmental initiatives undertaken by Better World Club, including:
- Recognizing the greenest roadside service provider in America
- Being the first travel company to offer carbon offsets
- Providing a free ton of carbon offsets to auto insurance customers
- Discounting membership for hybrid, electric, and other alternative fuel vehicles
- Creating America’s only nationwide bicycle roadside assistance
Better World Club provides roadside assistance and insurance services to tens of thousands of drivers and bicyclists across the United States. The company also has a 10-year history of supporting the rights of pedestrians and riders of public transit.
