The United Nations (UN) is partnering with a French tech startup to reduce transport carbon emissions.
WeNow, a pioneering early stage company from Paris, has also signed the Climate Neutral Now pact – a UN Climate Change initiative which encourages businesses and individuals to ‘measure and reduce their carbon emissions, and to offset whatever cannot be avoided’.
WeNow tweeted: “We are very proud to be part of the ClimateNeutralNow initiative – and help fight transport carbon emissions!”
The French startup’s smart box innovation allows drivers to monitor their emissions and provides advice on the action that can be taken to offset them.
“WeNow is an example of a startup company showing creativity and leadership in the way towards climate neutrality in the transport sector, thereby making an important contribution to the fight against climate change”, said Niclas Svenningsen, who heads up the Climate Neutral Now initiative of UN Climate Change, in a press statement.
Join the sustainability movement and take the ‘Climate Neutral Now Pledge’.
