BluSmart, an Indian ride-sharing company, received carbon credit accreditation from Verra, a global non-profit corporation, making it the first mobility company in India to obtain carbon credits for the CO2 emission reductions achieved by its EV fleet from February 2020 to December 2021.
The carbon consultant, Fair Climate Fund India, played a crucial role in estimating the carbon emissions for this project, enabling BluSmart to achieve this recognition in an exceptionally short timeframe. BluSmart’s primary objective is to promote large-scale decarbonization in the mobility sector, and it has already completed more than 300 million kilometers using all-electric vehicles, serving over 9.5 million fully electric trips.
Anmol Singh Jaggi, CEO and Co-founder of BluSmart, expressed his thoughts on this accomplishment: “As the first mobility company in India to attain carbon credit accreditation, BluSmart reaffirms its commitment to the mission of large-scale decarbonization in the mobility sector. We will persist in our efforts to build a business that benefits both people and the planet.”
Currently, BluSmart operates a fleet of more than 5,000 EVs in two of India’s most populous urban megacities, Delhi NCR and Bengaluru.
