Can Carpooling reduce CO2 emissions?
22/06/2017
The South African economy is one of the most important in the African Continent, contributing for one third of the whole continental income thanks to its natural resources and industries. It is the country we all love and care about, and it’s facing an important issue.

Quoting the WWF website:
“The transport of people and goods in South Africa is heavily dependent on fossil fuels, making the transport sector the second-highest contributor to the country’s greenhouse gas (‘carbon’) emissions after the energy sector. Given that transport accounts for about 13% of our emissions, finding ways to reduce emissions from transport would go a long way towards solving our emission challenge”. JumpIn Rides is strongly driven by its mission to make South Africa a safer country and allow people to travel by spending less money thanks to its car sharing service.

On JumpIn Rides’ platform you can find both passengers and drivers so that you can share your car and costs with someone else when you need to travel.

But ridesharing also represents a huge contribution for a consistent reduction of Carbon Fossil Emissions. JumpIn Rides has already prevented 3 tons of CO2 from being created. It is still a long way before it can have an impact on a national scale, but with the support of the lift club communities, this innovative transport solution can really have an impact on a greater scale.

The team is cooperating with green associations on the local territory to not only contribute by preventing the emissions but also actively reduce them and show how much everyone can do, by contributing just a little
