Whether passenger cars, light commercial vehicles or HGV: Vehicles emit greenhouse gases. With UTA Carbon Offset, you use - as part of our sustainability program UTA Edenred Move For Good - the easiest way to directly reduce the CO2 footprint of your fleet. Kilometer by kilometer. Very easy via your UTA Card: The CO2 emissions of your fleet are recorded per liter of fuel purchased, calculated monthly and offset by investing in certified climate protection projects up to 100 percent. The climate protection projects are located both in the European Union and in other countries around the world.

Your contribution to UTA Carbon Offset is handled through your monthly bill. You will receive an annual emissions certificate as proof of the CO2 offset of your fleet in the past year. In addition, you'll benefit from an exclusive marketing toolkit to measure and market your positive impact on the environment.

In this way, we make it easy for you to do something good for the environment with every vehicle in your fleet and with every kilometer - and, quite incidentally, to position your company as a pioneer in sustainability.

 

Doing good - for the environment and society

You get access to an exclusive online portal where you can access your fleet's monthly CO2 emissions and the corresponding investments in offset projects via a easy accessible dashboard. A current list of projects can also be found here.

The portal also provides you with your annual CO2 certificate of the total carbon emissions offset from your vehicles, as well as a marketing toolkit that includes a digital Sustainability Guide for your fleet, a logo for your website, a template for press releases, and much more.
 
The Carbon Offset Program complies with all international carbon standards and registrations and is audited annually by an internationally recognized auditing firm. The Carbon Offset program is administered through a partnership with PDI Technologies, a global sustainability solutions service provider.

How does the UTA Carbon Offset work?

  • The CO2 emissions of your vehicles are calculated monthly based on the amount of fuel purchased with your UTA Card

  • From the dashboard in your online portal, you can see your monthly CO2 offset, as well as access the offset projects

  • The Carbon Offset Program improves the CO2 balance of your fleet and offsets with certified projects up to 100 percent of your vehicles' CO2 emissions.

  • The program fee will be shown on your monthly bill from UTA Edenred

Climate protection projects that you support

Thanks to the UTA Carbon Offset Program, you offset the CO2 emissions of your fleet via certified projects and make a big impact for a green future with a small contribution.

J.B Hunt Intermodal Transport Project - Transport efficiency

Transport by rail causes only about one-third of the emissions generated by HGV transport. This project in the U.S. reduces CO2 emissions by increasing the share of intermodal freight transport instead of long-distance transport exclusively by HGV. Furthermore, an idling bonus program was set up that financially rewards drivers and their managers for reducing unnecessary idling time.

 

Jari/Para REDD+ Project - Reforestation

This project supports village communities in the Brazilian state of Para on the border with Amapá to protect the forests from access by new settlers and from deforestation. The region plays a very important role as an ecological corridor connecting several nature reserves. Its rich biodiversity includes plant species that are of great ecological and social importance as a source of income and food. By protecting the forest, the project helps to preserve the diverse fauna and local water resources.

 

Rossenray project - Utilization of coal mine methane

The mine methane, discharged from the active parts of the Rossenray coal mine near Kamp-Lintfort in Germany, is used to generate energy in a combined heat and power plant with an electrical output of 1.358 MW. The electricity generated in this way is fed into the public power grid and replaces conventionally produced electricity. The heat generated at the same time is used in the mine, but is not included in the compensation calculations and is not claimed.

 

Cerro de Hula Wind Project - Renewable energies

The main objective of the Cerro de Hula Wind Project (Honduras) is to provide affordable electricity from a renewable, clean and low-cost energy source, wind. It is the first wind farm connected to the national interconnected grid of Honduras. The project uses 51 wind turbines of the type GAMESA G87 - 2MW 60Hz with a total capacity of 102 MW. The net electricity generation fed into the national grid is expected to be about 345 970 MWh per year.

 

Improved charcoal stoves - Fuel efficiency

The goal of this project is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Mali through fuel-efficient cooking stoves. The improved charcoal stove (SEWA stove) reduces fuel consumption through a ceramic lining that increases combustion efficiency and retains heat. Thus, in addition to reducing CO2, the project ensures less harmful smoke during cooking and less deforestation, thus protecting the natural ecosystem and biodiversity. Reduced fuel expenditure increases household income available for other basic needs.

 

Methane recovery projects - Methane separation

Farms have characterized the landscape and way of life of the Dutch provinces of Limburg and North Brabant for several hundred years. To this day, it remains a predominantly rural region with little heavy industry. Rather, the agri-swine industry still plays an important role. But the high concentration of livestock has now led to the nitrogen absorption limit of the local soils being reached. Some of the manure can no longer be used. This is where the project comes in: The excess manure is collected and fed into a fermentation process. The resulting methane is converted into biogas and used to generate electricity.

CO2 offsets allow companies to offset greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by financing renewable energies, forest conservation, and landfill projects.

Basically, we all cause CO2 emissions (also known as CO2 footprint) in our daily lives to a greater or lesser extent, some of which are unavoidable. To reduce these impacts, the Carbon Offset Program is based on three pillars:

1. Calculation of CO2 emissions

2. Emissions reduction

3. Compensation of unavoidable CO2 emissions through the support of climate protection projects by companies.

CO2 certificates are instruments that can be transferred between companies regardless of geographic premise. They are issued by governments and certified institutions and have the main objective of protecting the environment by reducing greenhouse gases. UTA Edenred understands the importance of motivating drivers and fleet managers to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of their vehicles.

The Carbon Offset Program invests in projects whose positive environmental impact is measured and guaranteed by PDI Technologies. The UTA Carbon Offset Program and PDI Technologies guarantee that all offset projects comply with the following:

Permanent:  CO2 emissions are avoided in the long term.

Measurable: The supported projects work according to a reliable and internationally recognized standard

Verified: A third party periodically reviews the project

One-time: CO2 certificates can be sold only once
