We're pleased to announce a new partnership with Norwich's first exclusively zero emissions taxi service, zero taxis. The company, founded by Ex RAF Airman and now offshore oil and Gas technician Leon Davies, who came up with the idea whilst in an all electric Nissan Leaf.in the Netherlands. The cars used by Zero taxis use 100% renewable energy from their own solar panels and storage batteries, helping users lower their carbon footprint and enjoy clean, comfortable journeys.
Erpingham house will now offer a taxi service to all guests using Zero, available to book at the front desk to be collected from the restaurant, 7 days a week. We hope that with this partnership, we can work together to spread the increasing awareness of the need to be conscious of our carbon footprint and make greener choices where available. Zero taxis join a growing movement in Norwich that looks to protect the future of not only the city, but the planet as more news emerges of our limited time to turn things around.
Just yesterday, The Guardian published a UN report outlining the need to keep global temperature rises under 2C by 2050. The report warned we have just a dozen years to keep global warming under 1.5C, beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods & extreme heat. Its great to see more local businesses taking steps to combat this, and we're incredibly happy to be able to collaborate with a like-minded, forward thinking company.
