Pure Luxury honored for ‘Environmental Excellence’

Posted on February 6, 2009

Toronto-based Green Ride Global has recognized Pure Luxury Transportation for Environmental Excellence for Overall Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction and Client Outreach and Awareness.

The awards were presented at a Green Ride Global member reception at this year’s International Limousine and Chauffeured Transportation show in Las Vegas. Pure Luxury was recognized with one award for meeting or exceeding its annual Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction targets, and another for demonstrating high-level engagement and education of their clients, partners and stakeholders around their environmental commitments.

Early in 2008, Pure Luxury Transportation committed to annual GHG emissions reductions of two percent per year from 2007 levels. To date, the company is on track to exceed its first-year target by 14 percent.

As members of Green Ride Global, Pure Luxury Transportation is part of the U.S. EPA Climate Leaders program and has implemented an environmental management system that is ISO 14001 compliant.
