Carbon cutting transport website celebrates 10th anniversary



Carbon cutting transport website celebrates 10th anniversary
A company which has contributed to cutting road transport carbon is planning to move into carbon neutral headquarters as it celebrates a decade in operation.

Liftshare.com, which is a website that connects travellers and drivers going to the same location, was started by Ali Clabburn.

Mr Clabburn set up the website, which now has over 250,000 members, after noting how many people drove to and from meetings he attended without anybody else in their car.

Now the company, which started in his parents' barn, is ready to move to a new home.

Mr Clabburn told the newspaper: "We've just got planning permission for the building. We wanted it to be carbon neutral because we care about what impact we have on the planet and if we don't set an example then we can't get others to change their behaviour and attitudes."

A report by the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs reported that in 2006 road transport accounted for 22 per cent of the UK's total carbon emissions.

Road transport is the sector which has the greatest potential for reducing its carbon emissions, according to a Department for Transport strategy paper.
