”We’re passionate about (classic) cars but we also do care about our environment”
WHY GREEN CLASSIC HERITAGE?
Green Classic Heritage is a non-profit organisation that stand for a positive future of the automotive heritage because classic cars are part of our history, have an economical value and are beautiful and fun to drive. And taking into account the impact on the environment.
The regulatory constraints on the use of historical vehicles become heavier by the day. Socially speaking, the general public seems still very supportive and loves classic cars. But for how long? The real danger is that no difference is made between classic cars that are sporadically used for recreative purposes and just old cars that are daily used in function of their fiscal regime.
We are convinced that this evolution is a real danger for our passion, for the classic cars lovers and for the whole sector because it endangers thousands of local jobs. On the other hand, we are fully conscious that we need to do our part in the energy transition and that classic cars have a role to play in this evolution, provided there is a positive framework put in place.
Green Classic Heritage has two objectives:
Protect the classic cars heritage
Protect the environment
To realize these objectives, we have defined 3 focus areas:
Overcompensate the CO2 emissions of classic cars, youngtimers and modern sports cars (members can compensate 250% of the emissions of their cars, rally organisations can organize full CO2 neutral events); More info
Create a strong buy-in for the recreative use of these cars thanks to a shared vision by all involved stakeholders;
Promote the R&D linked to enhancement of motors and fuels to reduce emissions.
