Environmentally friendly taxis – why we're going greener

We gonna' rock down to Electric Avenue at 001. We promise to do our upmost to protect our environment, reduce emissions and make a cleaner planet for everyone!

The government is working at home and abroad to adapt to the effects of climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by investing in low-carbon energy sources, improving fuel standards in cars and increasing energy efficiency wherever possible.

At 001 we take the environment very seriously and are working very hard to adopt a carbon emission free status in the very near future. We believe that travel shouldn’t have to cost the earth. We are committed to providing the highest standards of service with the least impact on the environment for no extra cost.

Our Fleet

Since 2009 we have had a vested interest in eco friendly vehicles, in fact, we were the first transport company in Oxford to trial the Toyota Prius, the first hybrid vehicle of its generation. Since then we have improved our fleet substantially and are proud that over 75% of our cars are now hybrid vehicles and this number is growing year on year. A hybrid car will run fully electrically under 30 mph and therefore has a very low carbon emission rate compared to a normal car.

Our promise

In order to offset our current carbon footprint we plant a tree for every vehicle that we put on the road. Carbon offsetting reduces carbon emissions by investing in renewable energy, energy conservation and planting more trees to absorb more carbon. By using carbon offsetting we can reduce the carbon in the atmosphere by the same amount we've added.

Our electric future

This year will see the arrival of 001's first fully electric car. The Tesla X is the worlds first, state of the art electric vehicle and will be a proud addition to our ever growing fleet. Our priority is to ensure that 001 is a zero emissions company and we aim to get there as quickly as possible.
