Company sponsored car pool at Commend – powered by natural gas

In Salzburg, too, the “silent revolution” of battery powered and natural gas driven vehicles is becoming noticeable, with the noiseless high-tech cars becoming an increasingly common sight on city streets. Two vehicles of the natural gas driven sort have been running a service that is commendable more than one sense: sponsored by Intercom market leader Commend, they get groups of employees to and from work at the company”s headquarters in the Salzburg district of Liefering every day.

Both of the sponsored cars are generally available to all employees, although they are used primarily for car pooling. Already an average ten to twelve colleagues make use of the service, enjoying the relaxing drive to work in the morning and being chauffeured back home after a hard day”s work. The service has been very well received by everyone and is particularly appreciated by the growing “Commend car pool community”. “To be able to provide enough space and cover more destinations, we are considering organising a third run, perhaps even getting a third vehicle,” says a smiling Roland Eichberger, who is responsible for staff development and training at Commend International.

Apart from the car poolers, the environment is relieved as well. “Reducing up to 24 drives a day to four saves around 147,000 km per year,” says Mario Urban, Commend”s subsidization manager. With a view on active environmental protection, this means cutting down pollution by approximately 24 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year while reducing nitric oxide emissions by around 78 kg and particulate by 4.85 kg.

The programme is state sponsored within the framework of the klima:aktiv mobil initiative for traffic related climate protection measures. The goal of this particular programme is to motivate a maximum number of companies, public institutions and property developers to implement mobility management at their facilities to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transport rationalisation.
