Collaborative Consumption the Way Forward

Collaborative consumption tries to address the inefficiencies we face today with congestion and carbon emissions. Examples include car-pooling and renting out someone’s driveway to free up road space and ease congestion.  At any big event at arenas there are a number of taxis, cars and large vehicles queuing, but collaboration helps to reduce this.

At Carbon Voyage we’ve collaborated with Excel and Olympia to launch a vehicle booking service where large vehicles can book a slot to arrive, to reduce the number of queuing vehicles; and a vehicle share service to reduce the number of large vehicles travelling empty.

Collaborative consumption is all about sharing resources to reduce cost and waste and it’s growing:

  • Crowd-funding website Kickstarter is set to launch an Irish Kickstarter website to help Irish entrepreneurs get their projects off the ground.
  • The city of Amsterdam hopes to become the world’s first shareable city and it has embraced companies such as Airbnb which lets people rent out their spare rooms, and the city actively encourages car sharing.
  • Marriot has collaborated with LiquidSpace to offer its conference rooms as a ‘workspace in demand’ to locals.

It’s natural for us to share, as Rachel Botsman explains in this Ted Talks video.  Though four years old, it offers a clear understanding of what this movement is about. Collaborative consumption allows us to create a more sustainable system built to serve this need of sharing, which at the same time reduces cost, waste, emissions and energy used.
