GUMBALL 3000 MAKES HISTORY BY GOING CARBON NEUTRAL

London, 16 May 2013 – One of the world’s most famous and glamorous super car rallies, Gumball 3000, makes history this weekend by going ‘carbon neutral’ in what is its 15th anniversary year.

CNI UK has partnered with Gumball 3000 to offset the organisation’s green house gas emissions for the vehicles taking part in the rally, making what is famously among the world’s most fun and outrageous super car celebrations, also one of the most environmentally responsible.

CNI UK is entering the rally, driven by managing director, Edward Carlton, who will be updating his Twitter feed through the course @CNI_Ltd, he said: “ By taking part in Gumball 3000 and offsetting the rally’s emissions we aim to demonstrate that those who enjoy motoring but are conscious of environmental impact, there are steps that can be taken.”

Gumball 3000 will follow a special anniversary route in its 15th year, driving from Copenhagen to Monte Carlo passing through Scandinavia, Russia, Latvia, Poland and Vienna over the course of the nine days from 18 May.

A host of astonishing supercars will set off from Copenhagen at the weekend, marking the biggest year yet in Gumball’s history, entrants include a crop of Bugatti Veyrons, Koenigsegg CCXR, Ferrari F12, Porsche Carrera GT, Mc-Merc SLR 722, Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Aventador, McLaren MP4-12C, SLS Black Series, Mc-Merc SLR Sterling Moss, the new Jaguar F-Type and the custom-built road version of the Batman Tumbler to name just a few.

CNI UK is a leading provider in the voluntary carbon offset market, operating across multiple sectors assisting organisations in becoming carbon neutral. The company specialises in the procurement, sale and retirement of Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) credits and supports carefully selected projects around the world, such as wind farms in India, waste heat recovery in China and hydroelectric in Brazil.
