Commuting makes up 5% of the UK’s total emissions – 18 billion kg of CO2e annually

In 1998 I started Liftshare with the desire to make car-sharing as normal as recycling. I wanted to fill the 36 million empty seats travelling on our roads every day.

Over the last two decades we have enabled 745,000 members to share their commute, and have helped thousands of organisations make data-driven decisions on sustainable mobility planning and policy.

We’ve developed a wealth of knowledge and expertise across all areas of the commute, and are the creators of ACEL© (Average Commuter Emissions Level); enabling organisations to report, benchmark and reduce a massive portion of their carbon footprint.

For the decade ahead we have broadened our ambition...
We’re on a mission to make Zero Carbon Commuting a reality.
