Offsetting car use

Car owners can use P2P MaaS to voluntarily offset the carbon emissions associated with their cars, by financially supporting new services that will enable them to own fewer cars. The cost of an e-bike, for example, can be covered by as few as 10 car owners buying voluntary carbon credits, which P2P MaaS links directly to the bike. It is also possible to use the liquidity provided by carbon offsetting to make advance payments for new carshare services.

Offsetting cars is proposed as an alternative to more punitive approaches to road use charging, such as Low Emission Zones and Workplace Parking Levies. It is difficult to link these charges with the new services, which the people paying them need.
