Green Path Transfers (GPT), the newest subsidiary of the WHL Group, has launched as a global provider of eco-friendly airport and intercity transfers.
GPT answers the needs of leisure and business travellers seeking cost-effective ways to reduce their carbon footprints. GPT has recruited to its unique global network only established, service-minded transfer operators with a demonstrated commitment to a greener future, either through their pioneering use of low-emission vehicles or their movement toward adoption of sustainable practices and clean technology.
“It’s crucial for us to embrace green and cleaner technologies and modes of transport for the long-term health of the planet,” says Adrian Cordiner, CEO of this far-reaching network of transfer providers. “As transport is a main emitter of carbon, it’s a natural place to start in order to try to make a dent in global carbon emissions.”
GPT further neutralises any presently unavoidable emissions by 100% carbon offsets through reputable organisations like atmosfair and Blue Ventures Carbon Offset. This brings customers added peace of mind with the knowledge that their trips are helping to fund meaningful clean-energy projects worldwide. From solar energy programmes in India to hydraulic irrigation systems for rural farmers in China, the initiatives GPT supports through its carbon-offset partners extend far beyond tree planting.
“Every little bit helps,” Cordiner adds. “We believe that, by being an industry leader in the use and support of cleaner technology, both in transfers and through offsets, we will inspire others to follow suit.”
GPT is staged to become the top-of-mind choice for conscientious travellers and businesses. With its easy-to-use online booking system and trail-blazing local partners, GPT helps travellers hit the road confident that, for rates equal to those of other global services, their transfers are in good hands and that they’ve made an earth-conscious choice.
