About carbon heroes
Carbon heroes® is committed to reducing our impact upon the environment, initially by making better use of our cars. The company isn’t “anti car”. We use cars too – they often the only practical transport solution for many of our journeys.

However, we can all consider alternatives such as sharing some of the journeys that we make. When we commute to work, how many other cars do we see, typically with just a single occupant? It doesn’t make sense to us that 91% of these trips are made alone, when there could be a colleague who lives nearby
