XXImo supports and encourages energy efficient, environmentally-friendly and sustainable transport. The principle of the XXImo Mobility Card offers greater flexibility and makes travelling by public transport, car sharing and electric driving more attractive. By choosing these kinds of options more often, we can help reduce CO2 emissions. CO2 reduction is critical to keeping the Earth liveable. XXImo also provides its card-holders with details of their CO2 emissions per trip, in order to encourage sustainable travel.
Understanding CO2 reduction
As a card-holder, you can automatically see the CO2 emissions generated by your travel movements in My XXImo. This data is available thanks to our partnership with ClimaCount. ClimaCount has developed a methodology to calculate CO2 emissions in partnership with CE Delft. For each type of transaction performed using the XXImo Mobility Card, a CO2 load factor has been determined by CE Delft. These factors are periodically checked by the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), so you can see how much pollution is generated by each type of service. It also makes it easy to see which mode of transport can achieve a CO2 reduction. This awareness may result in a change in travel habits. For example, do you often take a taxi to get from the station to your destination in the city? If so, in future you could perhaps choose to hire an ‘OV bike’ for that short distance. That way, more environmentally-friendly travel can also have a positive impact on costs and on your personal health.
Companies can choose to have ClimaCount offset their CO2 emissions for them. This involves charging a fixed amount per XXImo Mobility Card; see our rates page. ClimaCount invests in projects which are effective in combating global warming. These include projects that involve planting forests and generating renewable energy by building wind turbines. ClimaCount’s carbon offsetting programme is audited annually by KPMG Advisory.
