Green travel has a new name, Eurostar. Flying between the Brussels/London/Paris axis is history. Today Friends of the earth’s director Tony Juniper joined Richard Brown, Eurostar’s CEO in naming the first Paris-bound Eurostar train “Tread Lightly”.
At 11.03am and 11.06 am the two first CO2 Neutral trains were leaving for Paris and Brussels, a world première. To use Tony Juniper’s words, “this is a landmark day for green travel”. CO2logic was there on invitation to witness this historical moment.
Just like Eurostar your company can be profitable, sexy, smart while having little impact on climate change. For us, today was a historical day and it is not just a landmark for green travel, it is a landmark for business as a whole as again a company has shown that business and environment can go hand in hand. It takes a little effort to start but competitive advantages are quickly reached leaving behind fossil fuel dependent companies.
