A session on Carpooling

Background

Lift Kara De (LKD) is a carpooling initiative taken up by the enthusiastic residents of Whispering Palms Society in Kandivali, Mumbai. The group consists of about 256 carpoolers so far with numbers increasing every few months. Mr. Santosh Shetty, one of the key members of the Lift Kara De group had approached Ekonnect for calculating their individual/group emission reductions, fuel and money savings achieved so far from their ongoing carpooling activity. Ekonnect team members estimated these values based on the data received from the LKD group members which comprised of number of rides, distance travelled, number of individuals in a car, type of fuel and years of carpooling.

The results showcased that in a short duration of 5 years LKD members had achieved 1, 91,000 Kg of Carbon dioxide emission reductions.
