Farnek deploys eco-friendly bus to expo
Dubai, November 6, 2012
Farnek Avireal, a leading UAE-based facilities management company, is operating a daily carbon neutral minibus to transport their staff travelling to and from the ongoing FM Expo, at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
“We are focusing on sustainable facilities management at FM Expo and it is very important that we don’t just talk the talk, but physically demonstrate our commitment to the environment,” said Markus Oberlin, CEO, Farnek Avireal.
The vehicle, a two-door, two-wheel drive 2010 Nissan Civilian, and the region’s first carbon neutral bus, can hold up to 26 passengers and with the help of myclimate’s offset-portfolio programme, will offset around 12 tons of CO2 a year, based on the vehicle traveling 30,000 km annually with fuel consumption of 35 km per gallon.
Myclimate is a leading international non-profit foundation providing consultancy, advisory and carbon management services to help companies reduce their environmental impact by offsetting carbon emissions and reducing or, where possible, replacing their use of fossil fuels. – TradeArabia News Service
