Equilibrium Travel Management (EQ for short) is reducing its carbon footprint by purchasing special emission reducing vehicles and is hoping to implement infrastructure that could produce carbon neutral electricity on site to power its operations.
The Dunfermline based firm has recently purchased two new hybrid cars in order to lower its CO2 emissions, which will be used as the firm’s company cars, acting as the primary mode of transport for its 8 travel executives.
The firm is also currently researching the possibility of installing a hydro-electric power project which would harness the power of a natural waterfall which lies on the land to provide clean energy to power EQ.
This has been a priority Franc Jeffrey’s, the Managing Director of EQ ever since he established the firm last year, as he commented: “We are making a great effort to lessen the environmental impact of our business which we believe is a crucial move to make in these times, especially when you consider that our industry is one of the highest polluters on the planet”.
EQ not only wants to be eco-friendlier, but also aims to revolutionise the corporate travel market by offering its services on a transparent, fee based system – unique to the industry.
EQ also specialise in marine and offshore travel, travel and expense management for clinical trials as well as running a comprehensive meetings and events department.
